Plant Respiration Teacher Resources
Find teacher approved Plant Respiration educational resource ideas and activities
Middle school science stars examine fuels and energy with a variety of activities. They begin with a KWL chart, read an informative passage, and then complete a puzzle. The puzzle itself is included. Cleverly, each piece corresponds to a statement which learners must determine if it is true or false. They will only be able to complete the puzzle if they answer each correctly. This foundational topic is presented in a creative way.
This smart slide show outlines energy flow in ecosystems. It addresses the sun as the primary source of all energy, flows into explanations of photosynthesis and respiration, and explores trophic feeding levels and productivity. Appropriate for middle or high school ecology classes, it can be followed with photosynthesis or cellular respiration laboratory exercises.
Students complete a lab activity involving planning and conducting investigations using a living organism to learn about photosynthesis and respiration. Students practice developing a hypothesis. They use an attached planning sheet to assist in the development of their statement.
Learners investigate a local forest ecosystem and discover the biotic and abiotic parts of the forest. Students observe the groundcover, understory, and canopy layers as well as collect leaves and bark in order to identify trees in the forest as part of the "Finding Out About Forests" project.
Delving into this slideshow will help the students understand the composition of plants and their structures. Each slide identifies certain structures and explores how they support the plant's survival along with assisting our environment. Images and examples would be a great addition to accompany this lesson.
