- Students will develop a deeper understanding of the variables affecting the rate of photosynthesis in plants.
- Students will manipulate variables, such as light intensity and wavelength of light, to observe the effects on photosynthesis rates.

About the Lesson
In this lesson, students will observe the effects of certain variables on the rate of photosynthesis in a plant.
As a result, students will:
- Better understand the importance of the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
- Develop an understanding of reflection and absorption of light energy by a pigment.
