Plant Reproduction
After a flower is fertilised, it dies, but its ovary grows into a fruit.

Plant Reproduction

In this KS2 Science quiz we take a look at plant reproduction. This involves the different parts of flowers, pollination, seed dispersal and germination.

All living organisms reproduce. but what exactly is reproduction? Well, its how a new generation comes into being. Flowering plants need to produce seeds in order to be able to make new plants. We often think of flowers as being beautiful to look at, but they actually play an essential role in the reproduction of most plants. They attract insects who pollinate them. They then produce fruits which contain seeds. Dispersal then takes place as the seeds are spread away from the plant. Some of the seeds will then germinate and become plants themselves.

Do you know the names for the different parts of flowers? Or some of the different methods of seed dispersal? See how much you've learned in your science lessons by trying this Plant Reproduction quiz.

  1. Which of these describes fertilisation?
    Cells travel from the pollen to the egg and fertilise it
  2. Pollen grains are contained in which part of a flower?
    The anther is part of the stamen
  3. Pollen must be transferred to which part of the flower for pollination to occur?
    The stigma is the tip of the carpel
  4. Which one of these is not a female part of a flower?
    The 'men' in 'stamen' is a helpful reminder that the stamen is a male part of the flower. The stigma, style and ovary together form the carpel, which is female
  5. How does a flower's scent and bright colour help it to reproduce?
    The scent and the colour advertise the flower to insects. The insects go there to get nectar but carry pollen from flower to flower as they do
  6. Some flowers are pollinated by insects. What do other types of flowers use to pollinate them?
    Plants pollinated by the wind usually have less colourful flowers
  7. What is germination?
    Seeds need warmth, water and a safe place to germinate
  8. After a flower is fertilised, it dies, but its ovary grows into what?
    Fruits contain the seeds which will be able to grow into new plants
  9. Which of these is not a method of seed dispersal?
    Insects visit the flower during pollination, not dispersal
  10. Seeds cannot stay on the parent plant. What must happen to the seeds in In order for them to grow?
    'Dispersed' means spread over as wide an area as possible
