Students conduct various experiments on glucose. In this biology instructional activity, students differentiate the process of diffusion and osmosis. They test different foods for the presence of glucose and starch.
Pupils observe diffusion of glucose through a cell membrane and research the function of chromium picolinate in glucose uptake into a cell. They conclude and understand the role of insulin and chromium picolinate in the uptake of glucose into a cell.
Fourth graders determine, through laboratory activity, the presence or absence of glucose in a variety of plant leaves and stems. They work in groups and perform a three part laboratory which shows them how plants convert sunlighht to food.
Students experiment using the basic principles of gel filtration. They use the gel filtration technique for testing for the presence of specific substances. Students discover that starch is a larger molecule than glucose.
This video would be great to use as an introduction to diabetes and the concepts of glucose, insulin levels, and their relationship. The differences between type I and type II are explained, as are the basic ways of treating the buildup of glucose in the blood.
Students experiment with lactase to find out how milk sugar is broken down in the body. In this enzyme lesson plan, students use glucose strips to investigate the breakdown of lactose into glucose and galactose for milk digestion in the human body. They use lactase enzyme to simulate the process.
In this chemistry worksheet, students identify and define various types of carbohydrates. Then they draw a Haworth projection representing monosaccharaides. Students also draw a Fischer projection to illustrate the structure of glucose.
Students test fluids for amino acids, glucose and salicyclic acid. In this chemistry indicators lesson plan, students use chromatography paper, Benedicts solution and iron chloride to test solutions for amino acids, glucose, and salicyclic acid respectively.
Students graph glucose test results to compare between people with and without diabetes.  In this investigative lesson plan students participate in activities that allow them to better understand diabetes and how to graph results. 
High schoolers make a starch-glucose solution and pour it through gel in order to separate the starch from the glucose. They examine how starch is a larger molecule than glucose and test for the presence of these substances using other chemicals.
Glucose is a simple sugar and a molecule that can be illustrated through modeling. Scientific investigators with visual impairments use hands-on models to reconstruct the process of bonding molecules. The tools used in this activity are ones that are commonly used with general ed classes, but work very well for unsighted learners as well. 
Begin the lesson by having your class write what they know about diabetes. They learn through a skit how the body metabolizes glucose. A visual representation of the two types of diabetes is displayed, and then learners participate in role-playing patients with diabetes and their doctors. Handouts and teachers notes are provided. The link to the skit does not work, but the skit is easily located via an online search. It's not an exciting lesson, but it is educational and pertinent, especially with the epidemic levels of diabetes in the Western culture. A few of the student research links are broken, but the majority do work.
This could be really good, or it could be really bad! The crime to be solved is, "Who went pee in the flowerpot?" Given four imitation urine samples, young chemists or crime scene investigators perform pH, glucose, and turbidity tests to uncover the perpetrator. Whereas this is a sound lesson in making observations, if you have any young scholars with the same name as the boys in the story, you may want to change them to minimize excessive laughter!
Salman Khan is very enthusiastic about the topic of cellular respiration! He provides an interesting presentation of the respiration process. Expect to learn about the basic stages of respiration, how it works in the human body, and the needs and stresses it puts on our cells.
Though this isn't the neatest reproduction of a worksheet, the exercises in understanding organic molecules are invaluable. In addition to answering questions about the general structure of biomolecules, diagrams displaying a condensation reaction and hydrolysis are provided for learners to assess. You will be happy to add this to your supply of biochemistry assignments.
The feedback mechanisms of metabolism of a variety of substances in the human body. Carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, and their derivatives are explained. The biochemistry required to explain the metabolic balance and feedback controls according to the cells' needs will be very useful to a high level biology pupil.
For this chemistry of food worksheet, students complete 20 various types of questions related to food and nutrition. First, they complete a crossword puzzle with vocabulary terms. Then, students use the figure shown to write the appropriate terms from a list given in the spaces provided. Finally, they summarize an advantage and a disadvantage of using food additives in the American food supply.
In this homeostasis worksheet, students sketch and label graphs showing homeostasis for the following conditions: blood glucose, temperature, systolic blood pressure, and blood pH. Students define and give an example of positive feedback. This worksheet has 5 graphs and 4 short answer questions.
Students explain that photosynthesis is a process that plants use to convert light energy into glucose. They summarize photosynthesis as a chemical process in which the plant uses carbon dioxide and water to form glucose and oxygen.
In this carbon worksheet, learners follow directions and use marshmallows and toothpicks to made carbon dioxide and glucose molecules. Students do this to see how carbon changes as a result of photosynthesis.
