Photosynthesis Leaf Cut Out
This is a printable cut-n-paste activity that can also be easily used for an interactive notebook.
Students read about the structure and function of the different types of cells found in a leaf, and then using clearly written directions they build their leaf onto a designated area and fill out the table using the text.
Students should have a basic concept of photosynthesis, as they also have to place the product arrows and reactant arrows facing into or out of the leaf.
The functions of the following structures are discussed
❁ Guard cells
❁ Cuticle/waxy layer
❁ Spongy layer
.... and how they all tie into the function of the leaf and photosynthesis!
