Lesson Worksheet: The Female Reproductive System Science

In this worksheet, we will practice describing the main structures of the female reproductive system, and explaining how they are adapted to carry out their functions.

Q1:

Which part of the female reproductive system is responsible for storing and releasing egg cells (ova)?

  • AThe urethra
  • BThe ovaries
  • CThe cervix
  • DThe vagina
  • EThe oviducts

Q2:

Which part of the female reproductive system is responsible for transporting egg cells from the ovaries to the uterus?

  • AThe cervix
  • BThe vas deferens
  • CThe oviducts (fallopian tubes)
  • DThe vagina
  • EThe urethra

Q3:

Some females can have problems with their cervix weakening during pregnancy. What problem could this cause?

  • AThe baby could be born long past its due date.
  • BThe embryo may not implant in the uterus lining.
  • CThe baby may not receive all the nutrients it needs to.
  • DThe baby could be born too early.

Q4:

Which part of the female reproductive system does the penis enter during sexual intercourse?

  • AThe vagina
  • BThe urethra
  • CThe uterus
  • DThe oviduct
  • EThe cervix

Q6:

The ovaries release, on average, one ovum (egg cell) a month. What name is given to this process of releasing an ovum from the ovaries?

  • AOvulation
  • BImplantation
  • CDifferentiation
  • DMenstruation

Q7:

If a female does not want to become pregnant, she can have her fallopian tubes surgically tied. What impact will this have?

  • AThe ovum (egg cell) will not develop to full maturity and will not be released from the ovary.
  • BSex hormones that control the body’s fertility will not be made.
  • CThe sperm will be blocked from entering the vagina during sexual intercourse.
  • DThe ovum (egg cell) will not be able to travel through the fallopian tubes to be fertilized.

Q8:

If a female becomes pregnant, which part of the female reproductive system will the baby develop in?

  • AThe oviducts (fallopian tube)
  • BThe vagina
  • CThe ovaries
  • DThe urethra
  • EThe uterus

Q9:

Which structure carries urine from the urinary bladder to be excreted from the body?

  • AThe oviducts (fallopian tubes)
  • BThe vas deferens
  • CThe vagina
  • DThe cervix
  • EThe urethra

Q10:

The diagram shows a simple outline of the female reproductive system. What number indicates an ovary?
