Be able to recognize how energy flows through the environment (sun to the producers, etc.) Do a flow chart and write this out. Chart
Takes sun + CO2 + H2O = photosynthesis
The sun shines down on _________ and/or _________. Plants/algae
The flow of energy is activities of ________________ and ______________ enable energy to flow from the sun through all living things. Chloroplasts/Mitochondria
