Sun A form of kinetic energy that travels through space by wave particles, makes life on Earth possible, and can be absorbed, transmitted, or reflected.
Reactants Input; the items that go into a chemical reaction.
Products Output; the items that come out of a chemical reaction.
Chlorophyll A green pigment that is contained in chloroplasts that absorbs most of the visible light spectrum except for green, which is reflected.
Chloroplasts A structure inside plant cells that absorbs visible light that makes photosynthesis possible.
CarbonDioxide A gas that enters the plant and is needed for photosynthesis.
Water A liquid that enters the plant and is needed for photosynthesis.
Oxygen A gas that is release from the plant as a product of photosynthesis.
Glucose A Simple Sugar; that is a product of photosynthesis and food the producer makes.
Green Plants Plants that contain chloroplasts.
Visible Light Energy that is vital for plants to make their own food.
Plant Cell Eukaryotic cell that has chloroplasts and a cell wall.
Stomata A structure of a plant that is a pore on the under side of the leave that allows the exchange of gases.
Xylem Plant structure in vascular plants that transports water and nutrients from the roots to the leaves of a plant.
Phloem Plant structure in vascular plants that transports food from the leaves to the rest of the plant.
