Today we explored how much energy is stored up in food. We used an almond to heat up water (some even got to boiling!). Remember energy from sunlight is stored in plants through photosynthesis and then released during cellular respiration. Our almond represented a mitochondria burning fuel. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you need to watch the video below and add calorie to your glossary (add metabolism too while you are at it!). Tonight is also the last chance to finish the "You Are What You Eat CEAL" task. Tomorrow more writing!
Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... sorry for the poor citation example I am setting...
