How does a tiny seed sprout and grow into a towering tree? Join the kids from M.A.P.L.E as they learn about some of the incredible transformations that a plant goes through during its lifetime. In All About Plant Structure & Growth, uncover the secrets of roots, stems and leaves -- structures that are vital to a plant's role as an energy producer. Find out how water and minerals flow from the roots through the stem and into the leaves through special tissue called xylem. Discover how a plant manufactures sugars in its leaves and then transfers it to the rest of the plant through the phloem. Uncover facts about a plant's root system -- the structure used to anchor a plant in the soil and take in water and minerals. Learn how to identify different types of leaves -- simple, compound and needle. A hands-on experiment in which kids prove that xylem tissue flows through all parts of a plant is also included. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Life Science -- characteristics of organisms, life cycles of organisms and organisms & environments. This title includes a Teacher's Guide featuring additional information on the topic, vocabulary words, discussion questions, follow-up activities and lists of recommended books and Internet resources. One of five volumes in the Plant Life for Children Video Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library for Children Collection.

Only available in the US.
