Third Grade Plant Quiz - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Explain the plant's life cycle (plate craft where we listed the 6 phases...think about our own plants we grew, slowly share the steps you remember through the end of the flower's life)

  • 2. 

    The purpose of the roots is to hold the plant in place in the soil and

    • A.

      Protect the seed

    • B.

      Attract insects to the plant

    • C.

      Make food for the plant

    • D.

      Take in water and nutrients from the soil

    Correct Answer
    D. Take in water and nutrients from the soil
    Explanation
    The roots of a plant have the important function of absorbing water and nutrients from the soil. This process is essential for the plant's survival and growth as it allows the plant to obtain the necessary resources it needs to carry out its metabolic processes. Without roots, the plant would not be able to access these vital substances, which are crucial for its overall health and development.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The parts of the seed are the

    • A.

      Seed coat, water, food

    • B.

      Seed coat, soil, embryo

    • C.

      Seed coat, embryo (baby leaf), cotyledon

    • D.

      Cotyledon, embryo (baby leaf), soil

    Correct Answer
    C. Seed coat, embryo (baby leaf), cotyledon
    Explanation
    The correct answer is seed coat, embryo (baby leaf), cotyledon. The seed coat is the outer protective covering of the seed. The embryo is the undeveloped plant inside the seed, which consists of the baby leaf (embryo) and the cotyledon. The cotyledon is the part of the embryo that stores and provides food for the developing plant. Therefore, all three parts - seed coat, embryo, and cotyledon - are essential components of a seed.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The seed coat does what for the plant?

    • A.

      Waters the seed

    • B.

      Protects the seed

    • C.

      Grows into a plant

    • D.

      Feeds the seed

    Correct Answer
    B. Protects the seed
    Explanation
    The seed coat acts as a protective layer for the seed. It shields the delicate inner parts of the seed from external factors such as physical damage, pathogens, and harsh environmental conditions. By providing a barrier, the seed coat ensures the seed's viability and increases its chances of successful germination and growth.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Plants need food, water, air, space, carbon dioxide, and _____ to grow.

    • A.

      Spongebob

    • B.

      Soil

    • C.

      Worms

    • D.

      Light energy

    Correct Answer
    D. Light energy
    Explanation
    Plants need light energy to grow because they undergo a process called photosynthesis, where they convert light energy into chemical energy. This energy is used to produce glucose, which is the plant's food source. Without light energy, plants cannot produce enough food to sustain their growth and development. Therefore, light energy is essential for plants to grow.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Leaves are very important because they make the _____________Word Choices:  food, sunlight, leaves, support, sizes

    Correct Answer
    food
    Explanation
    Leaves are very important because they make food through the process of photosynthesis. They contain chlorophyll, which allows them to convert sunlight into energy that is used to produce glucose. This glucose is then stored in the leaves and transported to other parts of the plant for growth and development. Without leaves, plants would not be able to produce their own food and survive.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Stems are meant to __________ the plantWord Choices: food, sunlight, leaves, support, sizes

    Correct Answer
    support
    Explanation
    Stems are responsible for providing support to the plant. They help the plant to stand upright and hold its weight. Stems also play a crucial role in transporting water, nutrients, and sugars between the roots and leaves of the plant. Without proper support from the stems, the plant would not be able to grow tall and strong. Therefore, the correct answer is "support."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    ________ also catch the sunlight or light energy.Word choices:  food, sunlight, leaves, sizes, support

    Correct Answer
    leaves
    Explanation
    Leaves also catch the sunlight or light energy. Leaves have a specialized structure called chloroplasts, which contain a pigment called chlorophyll. Chlorophyll absorbs sunlight and converts it into energy through the process of photosynthesis. This energy is used to produce food for the plant. Therefore, leaves play a crucial role in capturing sunlight and converting it into usable energy for the plant's growth and survival.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Leaves and flowers come in all shapes and ________.Word choices: food, sunlight, leaves, support, sizes

    Correct Answer
    sizes
    Explanation
    The given question asks for a word that completes the sentence "Leaves and flowers come in all shapes and ________." The correct answer is "sizes" because it makes sense in the context of the sentence. Leaves and flowers can come in different shapes and sizes, so "sizes" is the most appropriate choice to complete the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Without roots a plant would not stay in the ground

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Plants need roots to anchor themselves in the ground and provide stability. Without roots, plants would be easily uprooted by wind or other external forces. Additionally, roots play a crucial role in absorbing water and nutrients from the soil, which are essential for the plant's growth and survival. Therefore, it is true that without roots, a plant would not be able to stay in the ground.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The seeds are made in the stem

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
  • 12. 

    Hummingbirds and insects are attracted to colorful and fragrant flowers and this helps the flowers spread their pollen to other flowers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hummingbirds and insects are attracted to colorful and fragrant flowers because they provide a source of nectar, which is a food source for these animals. As they visit the flowers to feed, they inadvertently pick up pollen on their bodies. When they move on to other flowers, some of this pollen is transferred, allowing for pollination to occur. This process helps the flowers spread their pollen to other flowers, ensuring successful reproduction and genetic diversity. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    The plant could still make its own food without leaves.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Plants cannot make their own food without leaves because leaves are the primary site of photosynthesis, where sunlight is converted into energy. The process of photosynthesis requires chlorophyll, which is mainly found in the leaves. Without leaves, the plant would not have the necessary structures to capture sunlight and produce food through photosynthesis. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What's the purpose of the sepal?

    • A.

      Holds the pollen

    • B.

      Protects the bud until the flower blooms

    • C.

      Its the female part of the plant

    • D.

      It attracts insects

    Correct Answer
    B. Protects the bud until the flower blooms
    Explanation
    The purpose of the sepal is to protect the bud until the flower blooms. Sepals are the outermost part of a flower and they enclose and protect the developing bud. They provide support and act as a barrier, shielding the delicate inner parts of the flower from potential damage or harm. Once the flower is ready to bloom, the sepals may open up or fall off, allowing the petals and other reproductive parts to be exposed.
