Photosynthesis: Light Reactions
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 including the stroma, thylakoid, lumen, and grana. See the parts of a chloroplast and how it functions to produce energy.

Photosynthesis Review Sheet
For 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.

Ninth graders examine the structure and function of biomolecules. In this food molecule lesson, 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.
