    Photosynthesis Play
    By KathyB

    Clip to ScrapBook
    When teaching photosynthesis to my fourth grade students I had them perform a play. Students created a name tag (10 x 10 of cardboard) which I put yarn on and they wear. The parts are sun, plant, water, carbon dioxide, energy, oxygen, sugar and a narrator. The sun stands on a stool sending his energy to the plant. The energy, water and carbon dioxide go around the plant and then sit down so that the products of oxygen and sugar can shine. The narrator explains the whole process but each part must also be able to explain his/her role. My students absolutely loved performing and rarely did I have a group that couldn't explin photosynthesis via a diagram or paragraph.
