About This Quiz & Worksheet

Vascular cylinders are the bundles of vascular tissue that run within the core of plant stems and roots. This assessment and worksheet will allow you to test your understanding of the vocabulary surrounding the phrase. Some vocabulary terms you will be tested on include vascular tissue, xylem, meristematic, and dicotyledon.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In this test, you will be assessed on the:

  • Purpose of vascular tissue
  • Definition of xylem
  • Plant tissue involved in plant growth
  • Location of a vascular cylinder in plants
  • Different types of vascular cylinders

Skills Practiced

This assessment/worksheet combo will help students test the following skills:

  • Making connections - use understanding of the concept of vascular cylinders to understand the nutrient transport system of plants
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding the structure and function of vascular cylinders and interpret it correctly
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define main phrases, such as xylem, phloem, meristematic plant tissues, dicotyledon, and monocotyledon
  • Distinguishing differences - compare and contrast topics from the lesson, such as the transport system for nutrients in plants as compared to transport system for cells in humans

Additional Learning
