    Experiment
    Students will learn how photosynthesis is used by a plant to make sugars. These sugars are then used to perform cellular respiration to make energy. The sugars are converted into larger molecules like cellulose to help build the structure of plant cells. Students should also recognize that plants grow by cell division.
