Angiosperms: The Secrets of Flowers

     Author: Kate March


This is a short general introduction to the group of plants known as angiosperms (or flowering plants). The video begins with a brief mention of the rise of flowering plants and then discuss some of their major characteristics (such as fruits and flowers). Next, it identifies parts of a typical flower, introduces some of the relationships that exist between angiosperms and animals, and talks about the role of flower petals in pollination. The video ends with a discussion of how humans use flowering plants in their everyday lives.

I intended this video to be accessible to a wide audience with little or no technical experience with plants. The language is simple enough for a younger audience, while the material remains appropriate for any age. I am a science educator, and had 5th and 6th grade science students in mind when making this video.
