Science - Plant Life

This Spanish Easy Review quiz will somewhat mirror the basic science class on learning about plant life.

If you remember, a plant is any living organism that can synthesize its own food from inorganic substances. In addition, all plants are made up of five different parts. Those parts include the root, the stem, the leaves, the flower and the seed and/or fruit. In addition, the study of plant life is found under the science of botany.

Since this is a Spanish quiz, it is time to learn how those words, along with a few others, are named in Spanish. Many of the quiz questions will rely upon your understanding about plants.

If you would like, check out the Grade 6 Science quiz titled Parts of a Plant as many of the answers can be learned there.

Below is a list of various vocabulary words related to plant life that you will need to remember.

English Spanish Pronounced (Phonetically) As
botany (la) botánica bō-tă-nē-kă
bud (el) capullo că-poo-yō
flower (la) flor floor
fruit (la) fruta froo-tă
grass (el) pasto pă-stō
leaf (la) hoja ō-hă (Notice the 'h' is silent and the 'j' sounds like an 'h'.)
plant (la) planta plan-tă
root (la) raíz ră-ēz
seed (la) semilla sāy-mē-yah
stem (el) tallo tă-yō
tree (el) árbol ăr-bōl
