Dr. Smart Visits MES
Dr. SmartWith the help of Dr. James Smart, a microbiologist, at The University of Tennessee at Martin, Mrs. Rebecca and Ms. Allie’s class had the opportunity to see photosynthesis take place first hand on September 4th. Dr. Smart helped students see that by making leaf bits, and using the ingredients needed for photosynthesis, that the leaves would float like bubbles in water. Students had the chance to make predictions, and choose between different colors of light to see how it would affect their leaves.
