This PowerPoint was designed to support 5th grade NGSS:
5-LS1-1. Support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water
The PowerPoint begins with a discussion of types of plants as well as what plants need to survive. This leads into defining photosynthesis and breaking the process down into reactants and products. The chemical equation is also introduced with a diagram that shows how matter is conserved in this chemical process. More slides emphasize the importance of plants on our Earth, and students are given many opportunities to discuss and debate with their classmates. The PowerPoint culminates with an awesome video that takes students inside the leaves of a plant.
Notes for the teacher are included on almost every slide with suggestions on how to make the slides interactive. A notes page is included for students to complete throughout the PowerPoint or as an assessment.
Ideally, combining this product with hands on activities like the ones found in my Photosynthesis Unit would be best for developing a strong conceptual understanding of photosynthesis through several hands on activities.
