Photosynthesis and Cell Respiration
Fifth graders participate in scientific inquires regarding the concepts of photosynthesis and cell respiration. In this photosynthesis and cell respiration lesson, 5th graders describe the process of photosynthesis with relation to respiration. Students read and analyze relevant information while comparing and contrasting the process of photosynthesis and cell respiration.
TE Activity: Yeast Cells Respire, Too (But Not Like Me and You)
Student observe and quantify the respiration that occurs in yeast-molasses cultures. They complete an effective experiment in order to examine how to think critically about the results.
Review of Cell Respiration
In this cellular worksheet students complete a series of multiple choice questions on cell respiration, proteins and photosynthesis.
Electron Transport System Made Fun and Easy:
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.
What Do Bread and Beer Have in Common?
Students listen to an explanation of yeast cells and how they effect bread and beer. They discuss the ways alcohol affects the human body and participate in an indirect observation about cell respiration in yeast-molasses cultures.
Film Study Of The Grapes Of Wrath
Students analyze the effects of the Dust Bowl on tenant farmers by using a visual document. They analyze the film The Grapes of Wrath as a cultural document of its time. They view film critically by using a film guide to explore the migrant experience.
How Sweet Does It Need To Be?
Students examine sugar solutions. In this fermentation lesson, students conduct experiments to learn what sugar concentrations yield the highest amount of carbon dioxide.
Cell Respiration Worksheet
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.
Teaching about the Effect of Photosynthesis and
Students demonstrate the effects of photosynthesis and respiration. They decide which variables to analyze in a microcosm study. They produce a written paper, oral presentation, poster, or multi-media presentation
Population Growth in Yeasts
Students design an investigation using yeast. In this environmental engineering lesson plan, students design an investigation to determine how environmental factors affect the growth of yeast. They will collect quantitative data and discuss their results.
Purification v. Population: Green v. Gray The Plant Kingdom's Impact on Air Quality
Young scholars 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.
How To Make Yeast Cells Thrive
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.
Food For Thought
High schoolers examine their school population about their health and exercise patterns. They brainstorm a list of factors that influence people to eat the way they do.
Review of Cell Organelles
In this cell organelles worksheet, students read the structure and function of different plant and animal cell organelles to determine what organelle is being described. Students write in the 15 organelles into a chart.
Every Breath You Take
Students perform an experiment which demonstrates the CO2 cycle. They record their predictions and observations on a handout, and answer questions based on the experiment.
Animals without Backbones
Students study animal characteristics and identify animals. In this classification lesson students examine the different invertebrates and explain their habitats. this lesson is detailed with many activities that may be split to cover multiple lessons
Ecology Study Guide
In 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.
Science: Comparing Beer and Bread
Students compare and contrast cellular respiration in yeast and plant and animal cells. After discovering the role of yeast in making beer and bread, they describe the short and long term effects of alcohol on the nervous and digestive systems.
Explain Plant Chemical Processes
Students discover plant chemical processes through three lab activities. Overheads, data sheets, and teaching procedures provided for the unit covering photosynthesis, respiration, and transpiration.
Studying Plant Development Through Metabolic Activity
A hands-on activity which allows learners 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.
