Learning objectives – to learn how photosynthesis and learn what affects
the rate of photosynthesis.
Photosynthesis is the process required by plants to produceenergy. The process
involves absorbing the sunlight and making energy. Photosynthesis is a very
important process in maintaining the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Photosynthesis takes place in plants cells in small sub units called chloroplasts
which contain a small green pigment called chlorophyll These green pigments
help to absorb light and convert light into energy which can be used by the plant.
