Life Cycles: Sexual and asexual reproduction of plants.

Work out which of the methods need a single plant only and which need two plants.  Discuss the difference between reproduction through seeds and reproduction through cuttings or bulbs and establish that seed production is the only method that needs two “parent” plants.  Explain that this is sexual reproduction – ova and pollen from a male and a female parent flower are joined to make the seed, so the seed is not quite the same as either of the parents.  In all the other methods the plants will have no new characteristics but will have the same characteristics as the parents. Children to write the definitions in their books.

Remind pupils that pollen is produced on the anther which is part of the stamen, the male part of the plant.  The pollen is therefore the male part of the two cells that need to join together to make a seed.  The female part is the ovule.  The pollen must be carried to the stigma if a seed is to be formed.  Many plants rely on insects for pollination but others use the wind.

Watch videos on pollination and fertilisation and write notes about the processes.

Children should write definitions of both in books and to make notes about both videos to show understanding. They should also make notes, showing understanding of both sexual and asexual reproduction of plants.
