Pine trees do not have flowers. What structure do they have that servers the same purpose?

  1. Needles

    No. Pine needles are a kind of leaf. They are not used for reproduction.
  2. Cones

    Yes! Pine cones produce pollen and seeds, just as flowers do in flowering plants.
  3. Fruit

    No. Fruit are used for dispersing seeds, not for pollination.
  4. Buds

    No. Pine tree buds produce needles. They are not involved in reproduction.

Which part of your body comes closest to serving the same function as a flower?

  1. Sensory organs

    No. Plants can sense their surrounds just as well without flowers.
  2. Reproductive organs

    Yes! Flowers are the reproductive organs of the plant. While most animals are either male or female, most flowers have both male (stamen) and female (pistil) reproductive organs. In this photograph, the male stamens are the green stalks with the yellow ends. The female pistil is the white structure just below the stamens.
  3. Digestive system

    No. Plants make their own food, so they do not need a digestive system.
  4. Skeletal system

    No. The stiff cell wall of a plant cell serves the same function as our skeleton.

The "strings" in a stalk of celery are made up of xylem and phloem. Which part of your body comes closest to serving the same function?

  1. Skeleton

    No. Your skeleton provides support and protection. In plants, the cell wall provides support and protection.
  2. Intestines

    No. Your intestines allow you to absorb nutrients from your food. Plants make their own food, so they do not need a digestive system.
  3. Nerves

    No. Your nerves carry signals to let the parts of your body communicate. They carry messages for your senses, to move your muscles, etc. Instead of having nerves, plants release chemicals that signal other parts of the plant.
  4. Blood Vessels

    Yes! Your blood vessels carry water and nutrients to different parts of your body. In plants, the xylem is made up of tubes that carry water and some nutrients from the roots upwards to other parts of the plant. The phloem is made up of tubes that carry the sugar produce by photosynthesis to other parts of the plant. While they work in very different ways, your blood vessels serve basically the same function (carrying water and nutrients) as the xylem and phloem in plants.

Which organ produces insulin to control blood sugar levels?

  1. Liver

    No. The liver produces bile, which digests fats.
  2. Gall Bladder

    No. The gall bladder stores the bile produced by the liver.
  3. Pancreas

    Yes! The pancreas produces insulin.
  4. Thyroid

    No. The thyroid produces several hormones which control growth and metabolism, but it does not produce insulin.
