Photosynthesis: Light Reactions and Photophosphorylation
Because photosynthesis is such a complicated process, this video covers the same material as the previous video (light dependent reactions) but presents it with a clearer diagram and with further explanation.

Photosynthesis: Light Reactions 1
This clip picks up right where the Khan Academy's Photosynthesis video left off. Chemicals such as hydrogen and compounds such as NADPH are reviewed along with details such as the stroma, thylakoid, lumen, and grana. See the parts of a chloroplast and how it functions to produce energy.

This collection of animated slides offers an explanation of the photosynthesis process. It must be homemade as the sounds of dishes clanging, a television commercial, and computer mouse clicks are heard in the background. You will need to turn the sound off and use the pause button to slow the progression of these otherwise informative slides.

Ninth graders examine the structure and function of biomolecules. In this food molecule instructional activity, 9th graders will examine various types of biomolecules such as carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids. They will analyze nutrition facts on food labels and draw the respiration and photosynthesis stages of biomolecules.

Photosynthesis Review Sheet
In this photosynthesis review sheet, students answer 31 questions about the stages of photosynthesis and the process of capturing light by a plant from the sun and turning it into stored chemical energy. Students discuss the light dependent and light independent reactions of photosynthesis.

The Effects of Photosynthesis on Plant Growth
Students examine the process of photosynthesis; its products and reactants, and the sequence of the process. They diagram the light reactions, record observations of plants, and discuss how difficult it is to measure plant growth as it is affected by photosynthesis.

How Microbes Help Ecosystems
Sixth graders observe different microorganisms under the microscope. In this biology lesson, 6th graders draw and describe the samples they see. They study the root nodules of plants and explain how the plants benefit from those bacteria.
