This station lab activity and coinciding worksheet are ideal for high school Biology students learning about the parts of a plant and plant anatomy and physiology.

The 7 stations include background information on plant structures and functions, as well as critical thinking questions. Your students will love learning and collaborating as they work through each station!

Please note: This lab is also part of my Year of Biology Labs- BIG BUNDLE! and Plant Bundle.

This lab includes:

  • A teacher instruction page with materials list (photographs are included for absent students or to allow for a NO-PREP teaching option)
  • 7 stations with background reading, full-color pictures, and discussion questions
  • Student lab worksheet for recording answers
  • Answer key

Topics addressed within this product:

  • Station 1: Formation of wood and bark- sapwood, heartwood, cork, vascular cambium, xylem and phloem, tree rings
  • Station 2: Transpiration- stomata, cohesion, transpiration, transpiration pull
  • Station 3: Plant Adaptations- plant modifications, storage roots, tendrils, spines, succulents, rhizomes, tubers, and traps
  • Station 4: Leaf Pigments- chlorophyll, chloroplasts, pigments, carotenoids, anthocyanins, tannic acid, deciduous trees, evergreen trees, chromatography
  • Station 5: Monocots, Dicots & Germination- testa, seeds, epicotyl, radicle, hypocotyl, monocots, dicots, cotyledons
  • Station 6: Phototropism- auxin, phototropism, plant responses, experimental design
  • Station 7: Plant Ecology- plant genetics, colonial organisms, human impact on forests

This lab may be used as-is for a NO-PREP option, or live plants can be used to coincide with stations.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Evaluate the evidence supporting claims that changes in environmental conditions may result in (1) increases in the number of individuals of some species, (2) the emergence of new species over time, and (3) the extinction of other species. Emphasis is on determining cause and effect relationships for how changes to the environment such as deforestation, fishing, application of fertilizers, drought, flood, and the rate of change of the environment affect distribution or disappearance of traits in species.
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis. Examples of investigations could include heart rate response to exercise, stomate response to moisture and temperature, and root development in response to water levels. Assessment does not include the cellular processes involved in the feedback mechanism.
Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms. Emphasis is on functions at the organism system level such as nutrient uptake, water delivery, and organism movement in response to neural stimuli. An example of an interacting system could be an artery depending on the proper function of elastic tissue and smooth muscle to regulate and deliver the proper amount of blood within the circulatory system. Assessment does not include interactions and functions at the molecular or chemical reaction level.
