B. Obtain and Use Energy - Kaelie

Angiosperms get their energy from the sun. This is called photosynthesis. The part of the plant that does photosynthesis is the leaves.(the picture shows the plants being shined on by the sun)

C. Reproduce - Kaelie

All angiosperms have flowers. Flowers are important because they contain the reproductive organs that contain the sperm (pollen) and eggs. Pollen goes from one plant to another by insects or other animals or wind. When the pollen lands on the top of the pistil (the female part of the flower), it goes down to the egg and fertilizes it. The fertiized egg turns into the seed. Seeds get spread by wind, animals, water, and even people.(one picture showes seed dispersal) (the other one showes pollination.)elie

D. Grow and Develop - Diego

An angiosperm starts out as a seed, then it germinates and a root comes out. Then shoots up out the ground and starts growing to buds and grows leaves. Then starts to grow and then you grow the main product. With a lot of sunlight and lots of water.

Gravity:Plants respond to gravity by growing upwards in respoce to gravity and thats good because it's called positive energy.
