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: Light Reactions 1
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 such as the stroma, thylakoid, lumen, and grana. See the parts of a chloroplast and how it functions to produce energy.

Young scholars 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.

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.

Paper Chromatography-Chemical and Mechanical
Students perform paper chromatography to determine pigments in plants. In this paper chromatography lesson plan, students isolate leaf pigments, prepare a chromatogram and place their chromatogram in a solvent to separate the pigments. Students identify the pigments by the bands of color and their location on the chromatogram.

A First Look at Cells ~ Data and Analysis
A neat lab sheet introduces cell biologists to the general structure of both animal and plant cells. They draw and label what they observe under high power. You will need to provide slides of cheek cells, onion cells, Elodea, and Volvox. There are 14 analysis questions that give learners an opportunity to compare the different cells that they are viewing.
