How plants make their own food
On completion of the cell metabolism topic photosynthesis, I asked my 6th year students to make a poster that summarises photosynthesis in a clear and visually meaningful way.
The challenge resulted in the following works of creativity and science merger, with a class vote giving most ‘likes’ to Aoife O’Connor, Niamh Cullen and Emma Storey’s poster. Alannah Blain and Emma Comerford’s poster came in second.
Well done to all the girls for participating in the activity to learn in a more ‘hands-on’ inquiry way, which is not always available at senior level.
Hopefully it has been a worthwhile learning experience for all.
