Plants vs. Animals

How are plants and animals different and the same? 

๐Ÿ’š PLANTS ๐Ÿ’š



How are plants organized? Plants are composed of cells. Plant cells join together to form tissue. Each tissue in a plant plays a specific role: protection, transportation of nutrients, or supporting the plant! The organs of a plant are made up of the plant's tissues. The function of a plant's organs' is to soak up sunlight and C02 (carbon dioxide) for the process of photosynthesis

The yellow arrows indicate the most important parts of a plant!  

Food for thought: Why are plants important to us as human beings? What will happen to our world and our lives if the amount of plants in our world continues to decrease?

How are animals organized? Animals cells join together to form tissue (like plants). Also like plants, each animal tissue has a specific function. Organs, in humans, are made up of different tissues. An example of a human organ is the human heart! Slightly different from plants, animals have various systems that are made up of their organs. These systems are groups of organs that work together for a specific function such as breathing in the respiratory system!

Food for thought: How are animals and people different? In what ways are animals and humans the same? Why do you think there is such a strong distinction between animals and humans?
