  • Yeah, why do you ask?
  • Hey pup, see this plant right here?
  • Well that plant can make food for itself and release oxygen into the environment by conducting photosynthesis. This is conducted in the chloroplast.
  • Wait... what’s photosynthesis?
  • Well it’s when a plant can take in water and sunlight, then releases oxygen and glucose. The water and sunlight are the products and the glucose and oxygen are the reactants
  • That sounds interesting, can I conduct photosynthesis?
  • No, animals and humans cannot conduct photosynthesis. But a cool thing is that there is a pigment in plants called chlorophyll which causes a plant to be green.
  • Aw dang. But how does chlorophyll work?
  • Oh, cool!
  • Chlorophyll is a pigment that absorbs the bright colors like blue and orange and reflects green which is why plants are green.
  • Yeah, that’s photosynthesis, also it’s equation is CO2 + H2O —> C6H12O6 + O2. And photosynthesis in plants produces glucose, which is used in cellular respiration. Cool right!
  • Awesome!
