These 118 slides will captivate your students with stunning photos and diagrams to provide an in-depth study of the evolution and classification of the plant kingdom. Choose to use the traditional printable version, or the paperless, digital Google Apps version. The PowerPoint covers all the topics you would expect to find in a traditional high school biology textbook, including the evolution of plants from water to land, classification of land plants, reproduction of plants, nonvascular plants, and vascular plants. A detailed list of the topics covered can be found below.

This resource is perfect for traditional classroom settings, distance learning, flipped classrooms, or for students in 1:1 classrooms.

What is included in this product?

  • A 118-Slide PowerPoint Presentation (Includes traditional PowerPoint, PDF, and Google slides)

Your students are going to love using the outline as you teach. It allows the student more freedom to listen, think, and ask questions during note-taking. The notes are also perfect for students with disabilities or IEP's.

This is one of the “must-teach” topics in a biology class. Pictures and diagrams are included that will greatly enhance your instruction to your students. Graphics, diagrams, clip art, and photographs were chosen to capture the attention of the student as the lesson is being taught.

Topics Covered in the PowerPoint Presentation Include:

  • Introduction to Plants: Characteristics of plants and the plant life cycle (alternation of generations.)
  • The Transition of Plants to Land: Ancestors of plants, advantages to living on land, problems of living on land, evolutionary solutions that allowed plants to thrive on land.
  • Students will label a cladogram showing the evolution of plants.
  • Traits of Terrestrial Plants: Alternation of generations, spores produced in sporangia, multicellular sex organs, apical meristems, vascular tissue, nonmotile gametes, a root system, protection from dehydration.
  • Classification Differences Between Nonvascular Plants and Vascular Plants: The presence (or absence) of xylem and phloem, bryophytes, tracheophytes, seed plants, seedless plants, gymnosperms, angiosperms, monocots, and dicots.
  • Characteristics of the Bryophytes
  • The Liverworts: Characteristics, reproduction, students will label a life cycle diagram of liverworts.
  • The Mosses: Characteristics, reproduction, students will label a life cycle diagram of mosses.
  • Ferns - The Seedless Vascular Plants: The evolution of vascular tissue and its importance to life on land, detailed explanation of xylem and phloem
  • How ferns are adapted to a life on land, but not completely adapted as a seedless plant.
  • The Fern: Characteristics, reproduction, students will label a life cycle diagram of ferns.
  • The Seed Plants: Gymnosperms and Angiosperms
  • Seed Plants: The advantage of reproduction free from water, adaptations that allow for reproduction without water.
  • Cones, Flowers, Pollen, and Seeds
  • Characteristics of Gymnosperms
  • Characteristics of Angiosperms
  • Monocots and Dicots

Please note: This resource covers the content found in an introductory chapter on plants in a first year biology class. These topics are NOT included: (1) The specialized tissues of roots, stems, and leaves, (2) Parts of the Flower,

(3) Plant behavior and hormones.

This PowerPoint and Notes set is so complete and comprehensive it can be used in place of a textbook. If you are already using a textbook you love, the PowerPoint and notes are editable and are easily incorporated into your existing lessons and units.
