PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This hands-on manipulative requires students recognize and identify the components of photosynthesis. Students must be able to identify the reactant and products of the chemical process as well as explain where reactants and products are coming from and where they going. This game is a great for learning the basics of photosynthesis. In addition to the game board manipulative, an assessment handout is included that requires students to identify where the reactants of the process come from and where they are used in the process as well as where in the products come from within the process and where they eventually end up. It also requires students write a summary of the process using the academic vocabulary they learned from the game. This download is a comprehensive and engaging learning piece that will certainly helps students conceptualize the process of photosynthesis instead of simply memorizing.

Big idea: Producers play a vital roll in our biosphere because they have the unique ability to convert light energy into chemical energy (sugar) in a process called photosynthesis. This chemical energy is eventually passed on to almost all other organisms on earth though complex system of food webs.
