The Effects of Light Intensity and Wavelength on the Rate of Photosynthesis

Students use an on line website to simulate the effects of light intensity and wavelength on photosynthesis. In this photosynthesis lesson plan, students determine how wavelength of light and intensity of light affect the rate at which photosynthesis takes place. Students monitor the amount of ATP produced and create two graphs using the link, Create a Graph or a spreadsheet. They write their conclusion about the effects of these two variables.

Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver for me, especially when I am in a time crunch and need a resource quickly. While I consider myself a very creative person, sometimes I need to utilize the great ideas of fellow teachers to get my creative juices flowing. Lesson Planet has been pivotal in this regard.
