Photosynthesis

What is Photosynthesis?

As humans, we need to get energy from the food that we eat. Plants use light energy from the sun to synthesize nutrients from carbon dioxide and water to survive. This process is called photosynthesis.

Photosynthesis requires sunlight, chlorophyll (from the plant), water, and carbon dioxide gas. Chlorophyll is found in plants, especially in leaves that give off their green colour! 

Photosynthesis is an important process for plants as it produces glucose (food) for the plants to survive. It is also very important for other living things like animals as oxygen is produced during photosynthesis!

3E Framework (Explore, Explain & Extend™)

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

-Benjamin Franklin

Our 3E Framework (Explore, Explain & Extend™) is specially designed to inspire our students develop a deep love for learning. At BlueTree, we believe in the evidence-based research that students learn best when they are involved in the learning process. Our research-backed curriculum was birthed forth with this “proven formula” in mind.

Hinging on the fact that children are naturally curious, we conduct Math & Science experiments within our classroom walls. Through our unique approach, the BlueTree curriculum reinforces the learning process and our students develop a deep love for learning.

With in-house curriculum infused with elements of critical thinking, it stimulates higher-order thinking for each subject and ensures that each child is able to acquire the necessary concepts and skills and develop good cognitive and metacognitive skills.

Just like thousands of other students, we believe that your child will also stand to benefit with the BlueTree curriculum.
