The Simple Story of Photosynthesis and Food
Meet adorable animated chloroplasts as they, with the help of the sun, produce glucose. In this four-minute feature, viewers learn how carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and electrons are combined to form carbohydrates. The narrator also explains how glucose is broken down in our bodies into ATP, which we use as energy.

Cell Structures and Their Functions
Life science learners investigate live cells. They examine wet mount slides of cyanobacteria and Elodea plants. They peer into the dynamic microscopic world of protists. Afterward, they construct a model of a cell, including rudimentary structures: cell membrane, nucleus, chloroplast, cell wall, mitochondria, vacuole, and possibly flagella or cilia.

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.

Students recognize the importance of plants as they perform an experiment involving photosynthesis. Students determine the optimum wavelength of light for photosynthesis by exposing plants to different colors of light, collecting data, creating a graph from the data, and comparing results among groups.
