Energy for Life (Energy from Food)
Energy comes in many forms, but how do living things get the energy they need to survive and thrive? In a simple, controlled experiment with yeast, water, and sugar, groups make observations about how yeast reacts with water alone, then...

Teaching Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration in Tandem
Rather than teaching photosynthesis and cellular respiration as individual topics, present them as a combined concept. Young scholars use websites to research and answer questions before organizing a concept map. The second day is much...
