Part 3
You will be assigned to work in pairs by your teacher. In pairs you

will create a leaflet to hand in to the visitors. Add the

following items to the leaflet:

• Add “Did you know facts” for example: Did you know that
plants use energy from the sun to change carbon dioxide
(CO2 - carbon and oxygen) and water (H2O- hydrogen and
oxygen) into starches and sugars. This is called
• Take a look at this leaflet as an example.
• Then you will give a presentation explaning you leaflet to the
