Study Jams! Photosynthesis

This Study Jams! Photosynthesis interactive also includes:

Two teens sitting in a lunchroom discuss the process of photosynthesis. The redhead explains to her somewhat-lazy friend that plants combine water and carbon dioxide with the energy of the sun to produce sugar and oxygen. She mentions the roles of the roots, chloroplasts, and stomata. This is a hip clip for reviewing how autotrophs create their own food. Consider it as an assignment in a flipped classroom situation. For upper graders, use it as a preface to teaching the chemical equation for photosynthesis.
