Unlike us, plants do not depend on other plants or animals for food. They prepare their own food by a process called photosynthesis. Let's watch the video to know HOW?
Photosynthesis; Science for kids
Recognize and describe that a key distinction among organisms is between autotrophs, such as green plants (which use energy from sunlight to make their own food), and heterotrophs, such as animals and fungi (which consume other organisms as food and harvest energy from them).
Photosynthesis is carried on by green plants and other organisms containing chlorophyll. In this process, the Sun's energy is converted into and stored as chemical energy in the form of a sugar. The quantity of sugar molecules increases in green plants during photosynthesis in the presence of sunlight.
