Students 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.
In this biology worksheet, students color and label the chemiosmosis process. They complete 4 short answer questions on ATP synthesis.
Sixth graders create a KWL chart about microorganisms. In this biology lesson, 6th graders create and label a diagram on a microbial mat. They investigate the processes involved in the carbon, oxygen and sulfur cycles.
High schoolers conduct a series of experiments to explore carbon dioxide properties. In this chemistry lesson, students explain the production and uses of this gas. They measure its amount in soda and waste product of yeast.
Students decide if planting is a solution to air pollution. They participate in a mock trial, using results from research and experiments as evidence that supports their claim.
For this photosynthesis worksheet, learners complete 20 various types of questions related to photosynthesis. First, they match each description in the first column with the correct vocabulary term in the second. Then, students explain how cellular respiration is related to photosynthesis. They also explain how a low metabolism could contribute to weight gain.
If you need summary notes for independent study, or a Powerpoint to review as a class, then these slides will fit your need. There are really great, quite detailed, diagrams and some slides to summarize the 2 stages of reactions in different ways, along with notes for vocabulary.
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. Another use for this resource would be to display them on your whiteboard as you lecture on these cell processes. The black-line diagrams are neat, understandable, and accurate.
Quite a detailed and advanced look at the transport mechanisms of a plant. The absorption and control of sugar and water concentration are explained and will help an understanding of homeostasis concepts and organ specialization.
Students explore the concept of photosynthesis. They describe the light and light independent reactions of photosynthesis. Students relate physical plant characteristics to their functions. They distinguish between C3, C4, and CAM plants and relate their adaptations to their environment.
Students explain that photosynthesis is a process that plants use to convert light energy into glucose. They summarize photosynthesis as a chemical process in which the plant uses carbon dioxide and water to form glucose and oxygen.
Pupils study chloroplasts, their structure and evolution. In this photosynthesis lesson students experiment with polarized light and the production of chlorophyll.
In this word search worksheet, students locate 27 words related to biology. Words include energy, measurement charged, and ribosomes.
Fourth graders determine, through laboratory activity, the presence or absence of glucose in a variety of plant leaves and stems. They work in groups and perform a three part laboratory which shows them how plants convert sunlighht to food.
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. While visiting a greenhouse, they make observations that are added to a class chart for the discussion.
For this chemiosmosis worksheet, learners trace the flow of protons and electrons through the thylakoid. Students also explain several key terms including in the reading passage provided.
In this photosynthesis worksheet, middle schoolers define the terms provided. Students answer questions about photosynthesis. Middle schoolers match each term with the description below. Students also write the names of the reactants and products for photosynthesis that correspond to the numbers in the diagram.
In this cell energy worksheet, students will match 8 terms with their definitions relating to the biological processes that create energy in a cell. Then students will match 6 terms as being a part of photosynthesis, aerobic respiration, or anaerobic respiration.
In this photosynthesis worksheet, students answer 18 questions in a combination of multiple choice and short answers including the completion of a table.
In this environmental activity, students read the sheet that is about the greenhouse effect. They examine possible solutions to the problem.
