Photosynthesis and Respiration
Everyone needs to eat, right? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will teach you the basics about photosynthesis and respiration. You’ll learn why it’s important to know that plants are producers and humans are consumers. You’ll get familiarized with how plant and animal cells convert food into energy, as well as how they create and break down glucose. Discover what plants use their roots and leaves for, and how their chloroplasts work. And you’ll see where in the cell respiration takes place, and what role mitochondria play in producing carbon dioxides, water, and energy. Dinner is served - for plants, that is!
