1.2 Introduction to chemical compounds and photosynthesis

Purpose

Today we are zooming in on the inputs plants use to grow. What do plants do with the inputs they take in? You have already begun your first experiment to test your hypothesis on what materials plants need to grow successfully. If everything is proceeding properly, the seeds that you planted are currently taking in certain chemical compounds. Today we’re going to take a look at what the seeds are doing with those compounds.

Big Idea

Plants need inputs to grow!
