Allow your students to compare and contrast aerobic cellular respiration with anaerobic cellular respiration in this interactive card sort activity! You can use this as review at the end of the unit, or as an inquiry lesson. There are 6 cards for aerobic cell respiration and 6 cards for anaerobic cell respiration. You can have students glue the table sheet into their interactive notebooks (if you use one) once they've correctly sorted and glued the cards!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use a model 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. Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding of the inputs and outputs of the process of cellular respiration. Assessment should not include identification of the steps or specific processes involved in cellular respiration.
Construct and revise an explanation based on evidence for the cycling of matter and flow of energy in aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Emphasis is on conceptual understanding of the role of aerobic and anaerobic respiration in different environments. Assessment does not include the specific chemical processes of either aerobic or anaerobic respiration.
