So, what is Photosynthesis?

Photosynthesis (photo-sin-thu-sis) is a process that plants use to make themselves food, and make us oxygen. It is a complicated name for a complicated process, so I’ll try to break it down for you.  Basically, the sun hits the plant or tree, and the plant uses some of that energy to turn water and carbon dioxide into a thing that it can “eat” and grow with.  What’s left over is a bunch of oxygen! God was a great engineer when he made the earth, because with all of the plants in the world converting yucky carbon-dioxide (what comes our of our mouth when we breath out) into wonderful, pure, oxygen, we never run out of air to breath!

  1. I don’t know if you have ever thought about this. At one time, I was pondering about the ground around a tree. I wondered why the ground did not shrink when the tree grew and produced fruit. I discovered that the ground actually grows because of photosynthesis. It is because the energy from the sun is converted into mass (ground).
