Photosynthesis Lift the Flap

As I prepared for our unit on plants the other day, I was searching through Pinterest and was "Pinspired" by this amazing pin:


I loved the concept of lifting the flap, so I decided to tweak this idea for teaching photosynthesis. Here's the finished product:
"Plants use sunlight energy to change these ingredients into food."
"Leaves absorb Carbon Dioxide from the air that we breath."
I knew I needed a way to teach this concept that would make it stick in their minds because they are expected to be able to describe photosynthesis in detail. After reading and discussing the concept in our books, and watching this video from YouTube, we brainstormed ideas for what students could write under each flap. After all the information was added, they colored the picture.
