Perfect review for what plants need for photosynthesis

My students enjoyed the story. Thank you again for this site.

This was a great story and fit in perfectly with our lesson on plants. I teach an ESE Self contained unit; the students were engaged, informed and answered the questions with ease once the lesson was taught. They were able to read the story in a small group setting and work together to complete. Loved it!!!!

The story and the questions are great! I have used this story two years straight.

Loved it
