The process of Photosynthesis
This storyboard does not have a description.
Chorophyll, the main photosynthetic pigment, captures light energy through the leaves.
Then it uses the energy to power the process of producing sugars.
Plant's roots absorb water from the soil. The water then moves up through the plant's stem to the leaves.
Inside chloroplasts, the water and carbon dioxide undergo a complex series of chemical reactions. The reactions are powered by the energy from the first stage. Then the products (oxygen and sugar) are produced.
The Carbon Dioxide enters the plant through small openings on the undersides of the leaves called Stomata. Once in the leaves, the water and carbon dioxide move into the chloroplasts.
Then the process repeats again and again. So it's a cycle.
