Here’s a great explanation of photosynthesis
complete with interactivity to keep you students engaged. Watch short video showing what is necessary for photosynthesis to happen, and what products result from it, and then show what was learned by moving the components to the right place around the growing plant. Find out the photosynthesis equation, look at a leaf microscopically, label the parts of the leaf involved in photosynthesis, and finally, adjust what a plant needs to grow well, and help it bloom. This is a great review for grades 4-6.
