Why do we need it??

Photosynthesis
• A process that converts carbon dioxide into
organic compounds
In other words:
• The chemical process by which plants capture
sunlight and use it to convert carbon dioxide
and water int...
• Green plants
– Flowers
– Trees
– Some algea
– A few various forms of bacteria
**Mostly flowers and trees**
• These include:
• The plants/algea/bacteria
• Other living beings such as animals
• Even humans!!
Stomates
• Microscopic hole in the stem and leaves
of plants
• This is where carbon dioxide enters the
plant
After being absorbed by the
roots:
• Contained in the plant
• This is what makes the green color
What does chlorophyll do besides
make the plant green??
When sunlight falls on the
plant, the chlorophyll
captures the ene...
This is combined with the carbon
dioxide to produce the food for the
plant
The oxygen is let out through the stomates
We use the oxygen produced by this to fulfill
our oxygen intake to live.
• Proteins
• Fats
• Water soluble sugars
Sunlight, water, and the plants
work together to supply the raw
source of energy to us and help us
breathe in oxygen to li...
Life without
photosynthesis would
be impossible!!!

Photosynthesis

  1. 1. What is it?? Why do we need it?? By: Shyla Turner *** Instructional Technology TR 9:30-10:45***
  2. 2. Photosynthesis • A process that converts carbon dioxide into organic compounds
  3. 3. In other words: • The chemical process by which plants capture sunlight and use it to convert carbon dioxide and water into food.
  4. 4. • Green plants – Flowers – Trees – Some algea – A few various forms of bacteria **Mostly flowers and trees**
  5. 5. • These include:
  6. 6. • The plants/algea/bacteria • Other living beings such as animals • Even humans!!
  7. 7. Stomates • Microscopic hole in the stem and leaves of plants • This is where carbon dioxide enters the plant
  8. 8. After being absorbed by the roots:
  9. 9. • Contained in the plant • This is what makes the green color
  10. 10. What does chlorophyll do besides make the plant green?? When sunlight falls on the plant, the chlorophyll captures the energy in it, and stores it for further use.
  11. 11. This is combined with the carbon dioxide to produce the food for the plant
  12. 12. The oxygen is let out through the stomates
  13. 13. We use the oxygen produced by this to fulfill our oxygen intake to live.
  14. 14. • Proteins • Fats • Water soluble sugars
  15. 15. Sunlight, water, and the plants work together to supply the raw source of energy to us and help us breathe in oxygen to live on.
  16. 16. Life without photosynthesis would be impossible!!!
