Photosynthesis Play

Photosynthesis seems nothing short of magic: a little carbon dioxide and water, add energy, and poof, you get food! A thorough, collaborative lesson plan teaches youth the process of photosynthesis thanks to a skit they perform with a group of peers. They then use a card sort to review and assess their understanding of the process. The lesson plan is the 18th installment in a 21-part series on plant and animals systems.
