I liked this material but it will be too complex for my first year biology students.

I liked how the animation went step by step. By going though the steps it helps break down what each step is even further than just having examples, it spells out how each step works to complete the photosynthesis process.

Technical Remarks:

I wish you could make the animation larger so it covers the whole screen that way when showing a class it is bigger.
