This series opens with diagrams of experimental setups. A data table is displayed and questions are asked, indicating that the intent is for lab groups to perform the depicted experiments. At slide twelve, a coherent lesson about the chemistry of respiration begins. Nifty diagrams and links to other resources are included making this a dynamic presentation. If you wanted to develop demonstrations or lab activities to correspond with the opening slides, it would put this over the top!
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.
Young scholars explore how enzymes are important in the chemical reactions of all living things.  In this enzymes and catalysts lesson students complete an activity to see how enzymes change living things.
Students identify the different requirements for photosynthesis to take place. In this space science lesson, students simulate conditions in Saturn to investigate if photosynthesis is possible there. They use data and observations collected to formulate a conclusion.
In this leaf chromatography worksheet, students separate the pigments of a leaf using paper chromatography. They answer 4 questions about their results and draw the colors they observe on their chromatogram from the leaf.
In this World Blood Donor Day worksheet, students complete activities such as reading a passage, phrase matching, fill in the blanks, correct words, multiple choice, spelling, sequencing, scrambled sentences, writing questions, survey, and writing. Students complete 12 activities on World Blood Donor Day.
Students are often confused by the huge amount of information and detail that can be learned about respiration.  This is a great presentation summarizing the main 4 stages of cellular respiration. It is clear and uses diagrams and labels along with short facts.  The topic is still very involved, so this PowerPoint could be used as a review or in sections to accompany a series of classes.
Diagrams with annotations are shown on each of these eighteen slides, which summarize the processes of respiration. The focus is on the 3-step oxidation process and the Krebs cycle.  Students should be able to follow these slides during independent study, but would also benefit from further explanation and experiencing alternative ways of expressing the process of respiration.
Students investigate the effects of low and high temperatures on potato products. In this potato products lesson plan, students demonstrate the effects of storage conditions on Irish potatoes. They investigate the effects of frying, they determine the dry matter in a potato by removing the water and they determine the amount of sugar using glucose strips or a glucometer. They compare their results to determine how potatoes should be stored.
If you need a clarification of the electron transport chain for your pupils, then this slide show will be a great help. There are nice images of the membranes and elaborations of chemiosmosis which will provide learners support with cellular respiration. 
Students observe and examine how carbon dioxide, water, and light produce glucose/starch through a process called photosynthesis.
Students read a story about a teen with diabetes. They research diabetes and glucose. They compare and contrast Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
Students identify photosynthesis as a process through which organisms make their own food. They practice the process for writing the formula for the photosynthesis equation. Students describe how the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration compliment each other.
Starting with a diagram of the kidneys and urinary tract of the human, this sheet has questions about excretion, blood concentrations of hormones, gland feedback mechanisms and the effects of some hormones.
Throughout this five-day lesson, emerging environmentalists explore the use of ethanol as an alternative renewable energy source. On days two and three, they actually hydrolyze cornstarch and make colorimetric analyses. Be aware that specialized lab equipment is necessary for the investigation: a Vernier LabPro and Colorimeter, graphing calculators, various glassware and measurement tools. 
The main concepts behind how ATP transfers energy are explained in this Ap Biology PowerPoint. The diagrams convey the information that students need for any test regarding phosphorylation. The steps are clear, and should help students gain an understanding of the cellular respiration steps.
Storing and transferring energy is explained here with reference to the fight or flight response, along with the need for activity in times of lowered nutrition. This is a great summary of ATP applications, and after the multiple stages of respiration, your class will find this relevant because of the applications and impact of the biochemistry.  This is the student version of the full PowerPoint which is also available on our site.
A complete overview of oxidation, reduction, and how electrons are moved in respiration. You could use this slide show to elaborate on the concept of harvesting stored energy, and to summarize the stages of aerobic and anaerobic metabolism.
From the light reaction to the Calvin cycle, this presentation contains information about the various stages of photosynthesis.  This is a great supplement to some of the biochemistry-heavy presentations about the specific mechanisms.  Your class will like the review of putting the stages together and their relevance and connection to respiration.
Students explain the relationship of plants and animals in the environment. They name the basic requirements for plant growth. They define terms photosynthesis, stomata, chlorophyll and xylem.
