Photosynthesize me!!!

It is almost impossible to see a leaf’s stomata with your naked eye, but with a magnifying glass you open a world of adventure! We learned all about the magic of photosynthesis, and we used our magnifying glasses to see the fine details of leaves. We also did leaf rubbings in our botany journals.
