Photosynthesis for Kids


Photosynthesis is the process by which plants, some bacteria and algae are able to capture and use light energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into organic compounds like glucose. Photosynthesis is fundamentally important for life on Earth as it provides the oxygen on which all other life depends and as the ultimate source of food and energy in all ecosystems.

Plants - Photosynthesis
Grade: 3 - 12
Photosynthesis for kids - Explore the process by which plants make food from light, water, nutrients, and carbon dioxide.

What is Photosynthesis?
Grade: 5 - 12
Lesson on Photosynthesis. It explains the processes of photosynthesis and respiration. Autotrophs convert energy from the Sun into sugars by means of the light reactions and the Calvin cycle. Later, autotrophs as well as heterotrophs use cellular respiration to convert this sugar into ATP. The evolution of photosynthesis is also discussed.
