Photosynthesis is a chemical reaction that occurs in plants and is the process that makes food for the plant. This process occurs in two stages and requires carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight.
In stage one, the sun's energy is captured in the chloroplast. Chlorophyll , a green pigment within the chloroplast helps trap the sunlight.
The air is full of fresh oxygen!
Thank goodness for photosynthesis!
Water and carbon dioxide are important for photosynthesis. During stage one, water and carbon dioxide enter the plant through tiny holes in the leaves. These holes on the leaves are called stomata.
In stage two, glucose is created. The glucose is stored and used for energy. Plants use the energy to live and function.
Without the glucose produced during photosynthesis, my peach trees would not produce fruit!
During stage two of photosynthesis, oxygen is produced. Oxygen is released into the atmosphere and used by humans and animals. All living organisms require oxygen to survive.
Photosynthesis is a very important process. It provides living organisms with the oxygen they need to survive. This process is necessary for the food chain to work properly.
