This is a set of two different crossword puzzles on cellular respiration. I developed these crossword puzzles for my Biology I classes. It covers the topic of cellular respiration. My students love do these when we are reviewing for a test.

There are two different versions of the puzzle included. Version one is shorter and easier to complete. Version 2 contains a few more terms and the clues are a bit more difficult.
Concepts covered are: definition of respiration, the relationship between respiration and photosynthesis, the equation for respiration, the types of respiration (aerobic and anaerobic), the stage of respiration, the beginning and end products of each stage of respiration, structure of the mitochondria, accounting of the number of ATP, NADH and FADH2 that are produced during each stage, the two possible fates of pyruvic acid, glycolysis, Krebs cycle, electron transport chain, ATP synthase, fermentation, alcoholic fermentation, lactic acid fermentation.
The answers to the first puzzle are: sunlight, heat, glucose, oxygen, respiration, carbon dioxide, water, photosynthesis, reactants, ATP, anaerobic, aerobic, glycolysis, cytoplasm, mitochondria, pyruvic acid, four, two, NADH, electron transport chain, oxygen, fermentation, aerobic, matrix, cristae, Krebs cycle, electron transport chain, acetate, citric acid, three, one, ten, two, energy, oxygen, water, hydrogen, ATP synthase, thirty eight, three, alcoholic, carbon dioxide, lactic acid, cheese.
