Students practice translating biological ideas into graphical representations and explore respiration in the context of an exercise session in this 50 minute lesson on aerobic and anaerobic respiration. The lesson includes a question sheet for assessment.
Students explore Adenosine Triphosphate and how energy is released. They examine the basic process of cellular respiration and draw its chemical formula. After describing cellular respiration and photosynthesis, students compare and contrast aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
Biology classes will bubble with excitement as they complete this assignment. Beginning with an informative overview of cellular respiration and fermentation processes, the highlight comes as an experiment in determining the rate of alcoholic fermentation in yeast. This is accomplished by providing various concentrations of sucrose solution and measuring the amount of carbon dioxide produced during respiration. This lab sheet will keep young scientists organized and on-task.
Students listen to an explanation of yeast cells and how they effect bread and beer. They discuss the ways alcohol affects the human body and participate in an indirect observation about cell respiration in yeast-molasses cultures.
Life scientists observe yeast cells under the microscope. In this investigation, pupils conduct an experiment to identify whether yeasts are living organisms or not. They collect data and summarize findings.
Students compare and contrast cellular respiration in yeast and plant and animal cells. After discovering the role of yeast in making beer and bread, they describe the short and long term effects of alcohol on the nervous and digestive systems.
Survey the metabolism process from respiration through the production of the ATP molecule with this seven page AP biology worksheet. Pupils write short answers on the lines provided and label a diagram of the cellular respiration process.
Both aerobic and anerobic respiration are introduced in this succinct PowerPoint. The chemical equations for both are included. The last slides give instructions for a lab activity in which pupils use a gas sensor to measure the concentrations of carbon dioxide produced when yeast is given different sources of sugar. If you exclude this activity, this presentation could be used in a health class as well as in a biology class.
In this cellular respiration worksheet, students answer 34 questions in a variety of types including fill in the blank, short answer and matching. All questions focus on specific parts of the respiration process.
A complete overview of oxidation, reduction, and how electrons are moved in respiration. You could use this slide show to elaborate on the concept of harvesting stored energy, and to summarize the stages of aerobic and anaerobic metabolism.
Ten reactions involved with the process of glycolysis within cellular respiration are summarized here. The aerobic stages and anaerobic interactions leading to fermentation are detailed and wonderful diagrams to support the information are given. This would be a great PowerPoint to support a lecture on detailed biochemistry.
In this cellular respiration worksheet, learners answer 14 multiple choice questions related to aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
Educate and entertain at the same time! When presenting upcoming biologists with homeostasis in animals, use this colorful and information-packed presentation. Animals make humorous comments on the information provided. It details the processes of water balance and nitrogen waste removal with diagrams, photos, and comprehensive notes.
The many mechanisms of maintaining internal conditions of an organism are detailed here, with clear examples of how separate evolutionary paths have led to different conclusions. The slides are concise and attractively designed with information about diffusion, osmosis, waste diposal, and hormone feedback loops. Some slides have questions regarding the mechanisms of regulation which stimulate questioning and discussion from the students.
High schoolers identity the components of electron transport system through role play. They explain the role of intermediate energy carriers to the production of ATP molecules. They describe the relationship of electron transport system to Krebs Cycle and glycolysis as it relates to cellular respiration. They analyze and present their understanding of cellular respiration.
This is a fabulous presentation which should reinforce all aspects of muscle construction on a gross anatomical and micro level. There are slides to help understanding with the muscle fiber anatomy, and many labelled diagrams to explain muscle contraction. The second half of the presentation gives information about muscle fatigue, botox and problems such as Lou Gerhig's disease.
Students explain the mechanism of breathing. In this biology lesson, students compare lung capacities of people with different height and body types. They compare the classroom's surface area with that of the lungs.
How are kids supposed to know what to study for that cellular respiration test? With a study guide or reading guide like the one found here. With three pages of questions important to the understanding of respiration and the processes involved therein, worksheets like these can be very useful in assisting high schoolers to focus on the pertinent information. The resource is an editable Word document, so you can select/add questions as they relate to your curriculum and/or standards.
Although it contains some formatting issues, the Word document here contains good questions about osmosis and diffusion, and is easy to edit as needed. Designed as a study guide, you could use the information here for warmups, ideas for a quiz-review Jeopardy game, or as a self assessment for learners to check their own understanding.
In this biology instructional activity, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
