Why Lesson Planet?
High schoolers 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. High schoolers 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.
