Students also investigate the properties and the importance of chlorophyll. Using paper chromatography, students find that the color in green plants consists of several chlorophyll pigments. Students explore the cellular structure of plant cells to observe chloroplasts in various parts of an Elodea plant. Students connect the role of chloroplasts to the process of photosynthesis. From these observations, students conclude that photosynthesis takes place in Elodea.
The pigment in green plants, where photosynthesis thakes place, is
Finally, students observe that most sugar production and some subsequent starch storage takes place in the parts of the plant which contain chlorophyll. Students find that in a variegated Coleus leaf, starch is stored in the green parts of the leaf more than in the white centers of the leaf.
