Annexure A- introduction phase


Interesting facts
There are over 200 000 types of plant species in the world. Green plants provide the
Earth's oxygen, and also directly or indirectly provide food for all animals because of
their ability to photosynthesise. Plants also provide the source of most of our drugs
and medicines. The scientific study of plants is known as botany.
Question asked during introduction phase
1.
2.
3.
4.

How do we plants provide food directly to animals?


Also how do they provide food indirectly to animals?
What is photosynthesis?
What other drugs do you know of that are from plants?

Answers of asked questions during introduction phase


1. Herbivore are direct as they eat plants
2. Secondary consumers which are omnivores and carnivores
3. The process by which green plants transform light energy into chemical
energy.
4. Marijuana ,camphor, cocaine etc

Concept tissues
Group of similar cells that perform a specific function

Annexure B Content phase


Plants are typically made up of roots, stems and leaves. Plant tissues can be broadly
categorised into dividing, meristematic tissue or non-dividing, permanent tissue.
Permanent tissue is made up of simple and complex tissues.
1. Meristematic
Meristematic tissue can be divided into tissue that allows a plant to grow at
the tip ( apical meristems) and tissue that allows the plant to become thicker
( lateral meristem)
Apical meristematic tissue is found in buds. Lateral meristems occur in woody
trees and plants.
Structure and function of meristematic tissue
Structure
Thin-walled, immature and frequently dividing cells
Cells are tightly packed in layers or rows and look the same.
Functions

Provides new cells for growth


Some of the new cells remain meristematic, while others develop
specific structures for specific functions.

Meristematic tissue is found in root tips as this is where roots are growing and where
dividing cells are produced

2. Permanent tissues
The meristematic tissues give rise to cells that perform a specific function. Once cells
develop to perform this particular function, they lose their ability to divide. The
process of developing a particular structure suited to a specific function is known as
cellular differentiation. We will examine two types of permanent tissue:
1. Simple permanent tissues

Epidermis ,Parenchyma ,Collenchyma ,Sclerenchyma


2. Complex permanent tissues

xylem vessels (made up of tracheids and vessels)


phloem vessels (made up of sieve tubes and companion cells)

SIMPLE PERMANENT TISSUES


Epidermal tissue
The epidermis is a single layer of cells that covers plants' leaves, flowers, roots and
stems. It is the outermost cell layer of the plant body and plays a protective role in
the plant.
