High School (SCI) Life Science Standards [LS1] From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
SCI-HS.LS1.05 Use a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy.
Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on illustrating inputs and outputs of matter and the transfer and transformation of energy in
photosynthesis by plants and other photosynthesizing organisms. Examples of models could include
diagrams, chemical equations, and conceptual models. Disciplinary Core Ideas LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy
Flow in Organisms
-The process of photosynthesis converts light
energy to stored chemical energy by
converting carbon dioxide plus water into
sugars plus released oxygen.
