Storyboard Text

  • Photosynthesis is the process of plants intaking carbon dioxide to create glucose, with the help of water and sunlight. 
  • carbon dioxide
  • light energy
  • plants
  • oxygen
  • Plants collect water from their roots and sunlight in their chloroplasts. 6 carbon dioxide molecules, 6 water molecules, and light energy (ATP)  combine to produce a carbohydrate called glucose, and oxygen. This process is both a light dependent or independent reaction.
  • The oxygen and glucose are then carried on to humans and animals for cellular respiration. Cellular respiration takes place in the mitochondria. We breathe in oxygen, and our cells turn the glucose and oxygen into water, carbon dioxide, and energy. The equation, C6H12 + 6O2 = 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy (as ATP), is the opposite of photosynthesis.
