  5. 5. Here is another way to think about it. <ul><li>Carbon Dioxide 6 CO 2 + Water 6 H 2 O + Light energy = </li></ul><ul><li>Glucose C 6 H 12 O 6 + </li></ul><ul><li>Oxygen 6 O 2 </li></ul><ul><li>+ </li></ul><ul><li>+ </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Jolley Green Giant says: <ul><li>Without photosynthesis there would be no food to eat! </li></ul><ul><li>6 CO 2 + 6 H 2 O + Sunlight </li></ul><ul><li>= C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6 O 2 </li></ul>
