Cellular Respiration Worksheet

In our Full Biology Curriculum students complete a variety of activities to help them understand cellular respiration. Using our cellular respiration worksheet and other activities your student will master process of cellular respiration.

 

Get your cellular respiration worksheet below!

 

Using our Full Biology Curriculum, you will start by  engaging your students using a demonstration of the chemical indicator BTB (Bromothymal Blue). Students will be puzzled when you complete this demo and ask them what caused the color of the BTB to change.

 

Engage you Students!

After grabbing your students attention, you will introduced the topic using the Cellular Respiration Presentations and guided student notes that are included with all of our units in our Full Biology Curriculum.

Next your students will practice applying what they learned by completing the cellular respiration worksheet that you can download below.

Let your Students Explore!

After gaining some understanding of cellular respiration your students will complete the Exercise and Cellular Respiration Lab where they will observe the effects of exercise on the rate of cellular respiration.Cellular Respiration Lab

Elaboration and Explanation

Next, your students will Use a model (or skit, story, rap, poem) to illustrate that cellular respiration is a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and the bonds in new compounds are formed, resulting in a net transfer of energy.

What is Even Better?

You will be able to easily grade this using the rubric and answer keys provided in our Full Biology Curriculum. All of our units also include quizlets/flashcards that are already done to help your students better prepare for the assessment (yes, assessment and answer keys are included too).

 

Save time, Take back your life, enjoy teaching with our Full Biology Curriculum!

 

Photosynthesis Worksheet

 

In our Full Biology Curriculum, students complete several photosynthesis worksheets, labs and activities to help them build their knowledge of photosynthesis.

Photosynthesis Lesson Plans
Get your photosynthesis worksheet below.

Engage your students

In our Full Biology Curriculum, students are asked to ponder some very simple questions with some not so simple answers.  Your student will engage in some thought provoking discussion about energy.

Purposeful Guided Notes

Next your students will be guided through  the photosynthesis presentation where they will be able to easily follow along with the guided student notes that are provided in all of our units.

Photosynthesis Worksheet

The photosynthesis worksheet that you can download below will help your students learn and understand the function of chloroplasts in creating glucose and storing energy.

Photosynthesis Worksheet

In the photosynthesis worksheet students will investigate formulas reactants and products for photosynthesis.

Student will also use the photosynthesis worksheet to practice labeling various structures and components of the chloroplast. (outer membrane,  inner membrane, granum, stroma, thylakoid, lumen, CO2, H2O, O2, NADPH, NADP+, ATP, ADP)

Photosynthesis Worksheet

 

Photosynthesis Lab

Throughout the Photosynthesis Unit  student will complete a photosynthesis lab using spinach leaves to measure the rate of photosynthesis in different conditions.

Photosynthesis Model Building Activity

With our Full Biology Curriculum your students will create a model  to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy.

This model building activity will allow your students to process everything they learned through the unit. Students will design and present a model. The included rubric makes it easy for you to grade.

Photosynthesis and Respiration

This week we returned from break to a 3 day week. I started the week by reviewing cells using a webquest. I then moved on to photosynthesis and respiration. I began class showing the student a gift I received for my birthday. The gift was an Eco-sphere. The concept of the Ecosphere was  developed in NASA’s jet propulsion laboratory. It is a completely closed off system that sustains  3  shrimp, algae and bacteria. It really got my students asking questions.
