Abstract

Ninth-grade students learned that plants need sunlight to do photosynthesis, which produces starch. Two types of plants have been chosen, a shade and a sun plant. The students placed the plants in their places, sun plant in the sun and shade plant in the shade. They tested every week for the starch content in the leaves of each plant. A comparison is made between the plants and the amount of starch produced.
