Activity overview:

A song about the process of photosynthesis- how plants make their own food from sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water. Also covers chloroplasts, chlorophyll, and the photosynthesis equation.


LYRICS:

Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this,
Carbon dioxide, chlorophyll,
Water, sunshine, fill the bill...
Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this, you see...

Carbohydrates made from the sun,
Those plants make food for everyone,
Plants possess chloroplasts,
What are those things?
You might ask...
They capture sunlight's energy,
To help make food for plant and trees...

Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this,
Carbon dioxide, chlorophyll,
Water, sunshine, fill the bill...
Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this, you see...

Sunlight, water, CO-2
Plants don't take much for all they do,
Give us carbs and oxygen,
We need green plants,
If we're to win,
They give us food,
Those plants and trees,
They help us breathe,
Some make us sneeze!

Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this,
Carbon dioxide, chlorophyll,
Water, sunshine, fill the bill...
Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this you see...

Wheat and corn,
Just what we need,
Lima beans, sunflower seeds,
Peppers, pumpkins,
Pears and peas,
Those come from plants and trees!
Rice, and barley,
Your oatmeal,
We eat plants at most meals!
Apes and mice and humans can't,
Neither can a bee nor ant,
But ferns and firs and maples can,
Don't need to use no frying pan,
Make their own food,
Don't need to eat,
Photosynthesis?
Really sweet!

Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this,
Carbon dioxide, chlorophyll,
Water sunshine, fill the bill,
Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this you see...

PHOTOSYNTHESIS EQUATION

And when we're hungry,
It's understood,
The foods plants make taste really good,
Apples, limes, red tomatoes,
Sugar, syrup, sweet potato!
Carrots, chocolate, coffee, tea,
Cherries, chilies, celery...

Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this,
Carbon dioxide, chlorophyll,
Water, sunshine, fill the bill...
Photosynthesis,
Plants make their own food like this...
