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.

The Absorption of Solar Energy
Two sequential parts to this lesson introduce your class to the electromagnetic spectrum, the ability to absorb radiant energy, and the pigments in leaves that are responsible for collecting sunlight to be used in the photosynthetic process.

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.

Photosynthesis: Light Reactions and Photophosphorylation
Because photosynthesis is such a complicated process, this video covers the same material as the previous video (light dependent reactions) but presents it with a clearer diagram and with further explanation.

Cell Structure And Function
In this biology worksheet, students respond to 13 multiple choice questions related to cell structure and function. They identify which are microfilamets and which have a cell wall. Students also describe what chloroplasts are and their activity.

Science: Pigments and Photosynthesis
Students explore the process of photosynthesis by identifying chloroplasts and chlorophyll pigments. In a demonstration, they observe a demonstration connecting pigments with sunlight conversion into energy. Using paper chromatography, students discover the variety of pigments found in plants.

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.

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.

Rate of Photosynthesis
Students investigate the rate of photosynthesis using elodea leaves. In this photosynthesis lesson plan, students place elodea in a test tube filled with water. They include baking soda and place the test tube under a lamp. Students record the rate of bubbles being produced over time.

Biology: Understanding Cellular Organelles
Students distinguish the differences between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells. Using microscopes, they examine a variety of plant and animal cells. Working in groups, they draw and label plant and animal cells and show the mathematical formula used to determine the cells' magnification.
