Product Description
Let's Get Down to the Nitty Gritty.....of Photosynthesis! These Google interactive slides are a perfect way to incorporate technology and peer interaction as students learn about the crazy awesome details of photosynthesis. Perfect for the Google Classroom or as a digital science center!

These interactive slides include:

-Printables for a photosynthesis flip-book for students to model the process of photosynthesis
-Critical thinking questions with student writing responses
-Explanations for light-independent and light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis
-Cornell note taking document with prefilled topics
-TedEd lesson
-Chloroplast labeling activity
-Lesson plans
-Answer keys

These slides are fun, catchy, and are sure to keep your students engaged as every slide includes an interactive portion.

This product includes a teacher version, which includes lesson plans and all the answer keys, and a student version of the interactive slides.

In this lesson, students will:
-Review the process of photosynthesis by considering the starting materials and end products, and how these products are used by living organisms
-Review that photosynthesis takes place in chloroplasts within leaf cells of most vascular plants
-Label the various structures of a chloroplast
-Learn that photosynthesis consists of two reactions (light dependent and light independent)
-Take Cornell notes and demonstrate comprehension of the differences between the light dependent and light independent reactions including the location of each, starting materials, end products and specific processes for each reaction (such as the electron transport chain and the Calvin Cycle)
-Model the process of photosynthesis by creating a flip-book that illustrates how light energy, carbon dioxide and water are used to produce oxygen and sugar molecules

NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas Met:

Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms.
LS1.A: Structure and Function
Multicellular organisms have a hierarchical structural organization, in which any one system is made up of numerous parts and is itself a component of the next level.

Use a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy
LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms
The process of photosynthesis converts light energy to stored chemical energy by converting carbon dioxide plus water into sugars plus released oxygen.
