This week in Science....
State Standard that we will cover this week: Students can explain that plants use the energy in light to make sugars out of carbon dioxide and water through the process of photosynthesis. These materials can be used immediately or stored for later use.
This week we will learn about the characteristics of seedless plants. Students will learn how seedless plants are different from seed plants and how they are able to reproduce without seeds.
