Essential Questions: How does the sun supply living things with the energy they need?” “How do living organisms transform energy?”
The process of photosynthesis comes from the latin root "photos" meaning "light" and synthesize, "to make". Almost all life on Earth relies on this - converting the Sun's energy into chemical energy, or food, for the rest of us. In this unit we will explore how the Sun's energy is converted into food, and then how organisms transform this energy into the driving forces that we call life.
