Reproduction 01

This KS3 Science quiz takes a look at reproduction. If egg and sperm are mentioned in the same breath, chances are the conversation is about reproduction. Reproduction allows all living things to produce more of their kind. The reproductive system is a system of organs within an organism which work together for the purpose of reproduction. Humans are mammals and therefore have similar reproductive organs to other mammals like cats, elephants and polar bears. The way the reproductive system of each species works is slightly different to all other species, so at KS3, we focus on how our own reproductive system functions.

The main organs of the female human reproductive system are the ovaries, oviducts (fallopian tubes), uterus (commonly called the womb) and the vagina.

Once a month, changes in the hormones in a woman's body causes an egg to be released from the ovaries. At the same time, the lining of the uterus thickens. When the egg reaches the uterus, if it has been fertilised, it will embed in the uterus lining and develop into a baby. If it is not fertilised, it will pass out of the body through the vagina, together with the lining of the uterus and the whole cycle begins again.

    These are part of the male reproductive system
  2. The life support system for a baby is in:
    It is called the placenta
  3. Fertilisation of an egg occurs in:
    The oviduct is also called the fallopian tube
  4. In the male reproductive system the urethra carries:
    The urethra carries sperm or urine, but not at the same time
  5. Choose the correct order for the changes in the uterus wall which occur every month in a fertile woman.
    This is controlled by hormones that circulate in the bloodstream
  6. Which of the following is NOT part of the male reproductive system?
    Eggs pass through this organ from the ovary to the uterus
  7. Choose the correct order leading to a fertilised egg attaching itself to the uterus wall.
    If you are not sure what each of these scientific terms mean, look them up as soon as possible
  8. In the female reproductive system, an egg is released monthly from which organ?
    A female human is born with a limited supply of eggs
  9. In the male reproductive system sperm are produced:
    Sperm cells are very tiny compared to an egg cell but they have a sort of tail that enables them to travel from the vagina to the oviduct
  10. When sexual intercourse takes place:
    From there, they 'swim' through the uterus into the oviducts. Most of them die on the way and only one can fertilise an egg cell
