Students 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.
Beginning biologists demonstrate their grasp on cellular respiration, photosynthesis, and energy flow though ecosystems when completing this worksheet. Fifteen multiple choice and short answer questions test their knowledge. Because of the breadth of questions included, this would be fitting as a quiz or review worksheet.
For this ecology study guide, students fill in a table about producers, consumers and decomposers, they draw the water cycle, they fill in diagrams about cell respiration, the food pyramid, protein synthesis and nitrification, population and carrying capacity and the Greenhouse Effect.
Students set up and run the experiments they designed in the lesson, 'Population Growth in Yeasts,' using simple yeast-molasses cultures in test tubes. They demonstrate understanding that several environmental factors can contribute to the population growth of simple organisms such as yeasts. These can include food supply, temperature, and pH.
A hands-on activity which allows students to learn about cellular respiration. This lesson contains a range of investigations testing the rates of cellular respiration to demonstrate the relationship between metabolic rates of developing plants and their respective roles. This can be performed in any classroom using common lab equipment at very little cost.
