Photosynthesis diagram for kids: how plants help us to survive
Do you know how important plants are to us? If there weren't any on Earth, we wouldn't be able to survive. Look at the diagram below to find out how plants provide the oxygen we breathe through the process of photosynthesis.
Why plants are important
The picture below shows how important plants are to everyone. Through a process called photosynthesis, plants use energy in sunlight to turn a gas called carbon dioxide and water into sugar. Plants then use this sugar to grow. At the same time, plants produce a gas called oxygen as a waste product, which is lucky for us and other animals because we need oxygen to breathe!
