Photosynthesis Worksheets

All living things need energy to live. Plants perform photosynthesis, using energy from the sun to make their own food. The sugar made by this process is the main source of food for many animals. Because plants are the main producers of food for animals, photosynthesis is an important process to all life on Earth. Supplement textbook information with these engaging reading passages.
