Photosynthesis

Our 7th grade botanists have been studying photosynthesis over the last few weeks.  First, they used edible models to understand the structure of plant cells, with green jellybeans being used to represent chloroplasts.  They were able to eat any extra “organelles”! Next, bromothymol blue was shown to react with CO2, and Benedict’s solution reacted to sugar.  This involved using Bunsen Burners!   Safety First!
