Photosynthesis & Light

Today we used our red filters to decode the hidden messages in our color coded mosaics.
How is this related to leaves and photosynthesis?

Which frequencies of light are reflected and absorbed by leaves?  How do they capture this energy?  What do they do with it in the process of photosynthesis?

We are modeling the leaf structure and diagramming the flow of molecules and energy through a leaf, explaining the mind-blowing magic of photosynthesis, turning air and water into the molecules that make up all of us!
