Did you know that Amazon Prime members can borrow both of my Jokes By Kids Kindle books for free? While that may not be quite enough of an incentive to pay the annual $ 99 fee, I’ve long been an Amazon Prime member, and still consider it a great value.
And, Amazon is now offering a 30-day free trial.
Here’s a short article about why I love my Amazon Prime membership and still consider it a great value.
See ya on the Net,

Photosynthesis Printable(** for Premium Members only)
Photosynthesis is the chemical process used by plants (and a few other organisms) to convert sunlight, water, and air into the energy needed for the plant to grow and survive. Learn more with today’s crop of website picks.
“If you’re not a microbe and you’re not an animal, chances are you are a plant. There are loads of species of plants on Earth. Just as there is a system of classification for animals, there is also a system of classification for plants.” This Biology4Kids introduction to plants is divided into ten parts. Start your tour with Photosynthesis and progress by using the navigation buttons at the bottom of each page, or jump to any section via the menu at the top of the right-hand column.
Pearson: BioCoach Activity: Photosynthesis
For high-school students, Pearson offers nine interactive animations (covering eight concepts) and a twenty-five question multiple-choice quiz. “The animations review the important characteristics of light energy, quiz your recall of leaf and plant cell anatomy, demonstrate the general process of photosynthesis, and examine the molecular events that take place in the chloroplast.”
“Photosynthesis is one of the coolest processes that scientists know about!” Okay, that line made me laugh, but this StudyJames cartoon from Scholastic does do a good job of introducing photosynthesis to elementary age students. When you’re done with this one, just click on Science for related StudyJam cartoon videos including Plant Cells, Roots & Stems, Flowers and Plant Adaptations.
