Today we learned about leaves. We learned the process that leaves use to make food called photosynthesis. We learned that leaves are green because of chlorophyll and without chlorophyll plants can’t make food. The children were able to see how leaves breath and let out water vapors through a hands-on experiment of wrapping leaves, which was conducted over night. We also did another experiment in which we were able to see the different colors in a leaf through a process called chromatography. We finished the class collecting leaves and making leaf people. Over all it was a fantastic day. 🙂
