Nature's Smallest Factory: The Calvin Cycle
The two-step process of photosynthesis is explained to your high school biologists with a focus on the Calvin cycle. Using adorable animation, the cycle is likened to a tiny, sustainable factory. Even though the enzyme-bird rubisco and the enzyme-cat NADPh work the factory in this cartoon, the chemical reactions are each explained in splendid detail.

Photosynthesis:The Calvin Cycle
From the light reaction to the Calvin cycle, this presentation contains information about the various stages of photosynthesis. This is a great supplement to some of the biochemistry-heavy presentations about the specific mechanisms. Your class will like the review of putting the stages together and their relevance and connection to respiration.

AP: Chapter 10: Photosynthesis
AP biologists or college-level botanists consider in-depth details of the photosynthetic process. They examine the structures in a leaf and the roles that they play. They label neat and colorful diagrams of photosystems and electron flow. They explain what happens to different ions and molecules as they participate in the process.

Photosynthesis: Light-dependent and Calvin cycle
Students recognize the concepts of the light-dependent and the Calvin cycles. They draw diagrams of the light-dependent reaction and the Calvin cycle. In addition, they investigate the effects of light on carbohydrate content in leaves.

The Effects of Photosynthesis on Plant Growth
Young scholars are able to draw a diagram of the light reactions and briefly describe what is occurring throughout the process. They are able to explain where each reactant/product in the photosynthesis equation comes from/goes during the process and write down their observations about particular plants and discuss the implication some of these observations have on photosynthesis.

Diagrams of Cell Processes
Two large diagrams make up this simple, yet valuable, biology resource. One is a close-up of a plant cell in which learners label the steps involved in photosynthesis and the Calvin cycle. The other is a cell where learners label the steps involved in cellular respiration.

What Should I Know About Photosynthesis
This four-page handout would work great as a reading guide or note-taking resource for teens learning about ATP, photosynthesis, the key scientists in the realm of photosynthesis, and more. It is designed to accompany a certain textbook, but should fit well with most resources that comprehensively cover this topic.
