Insect an organism with 6 legs, 3 body parts and an exoskeleton
Pollination the process of a flower's pollen being transported to another flower to make a fruit
pollen male sperm cell of a flower
ovule female reproductive cell of a flower
anther male part of a flower with pollen
stigma female part of the flower that pollen must land on for pollination
ovary the female part of a flower that grows the seed once the egg is fertilized with pollen
Cotyledon the part of a seed that provides energy to the very early plant before it reaches the sun to make its own food
seed coat the outer layer of a seed that protects it
Cell wall a part of a plant cell (NOT animal cell) that gives the cell a rectangular shape and helps prevent it form drying out
mammal an organism that produces milk for its babies, has hair and is warm-blooded
amphibian an organism that is cold-blooded and lives in both land and water

intrusive an igneous rock that is formed under the earth from cooled magma
magma molten (melted) rock under the Earth's surface
lava molten (melted rock) on the Earth;s surface
Metamorphic rock a rock formed by heat and pressure
Sedimentary rock a rock made from sediments that are compacted and cemented together
sediments pieces of shell, dirt and sand
rock cycle the cycle that shows how rocks change from one type to another
weathering the process of breaking down rocks into smaller pieces
physical weathering the process of breaking down rocks by force (not chemicals); such as frost wedging
chemical weathering the process of breaking down rocks by chemicals; such as acid rain
fossils teh preserved remains of dead organisms that are buried in layers of sediments; over time these layers of sediments turn into sedimentary rock and create the fossil
Erosion the process of broken down rocks and sediments getting transported away; agents of erosion include water, ice, wind and gravity

divergence (or divergent plate boundary) when 2 tectonic plates move away form each other; creating ocean trenches and sea floor spreading
convergence (or convergent plate boundary) when 2 tectonic plates move towards each other; creating mountains and volcanoes
transform (or transform plate boundary) when 2 tectonic plates slide past each other, creating earthquakes
