Photosynthesis Complete Unit Plan Teaching Bundle
It's all here.... Everything you need to teach this complete unit on photosynthesis to your biology students.
This bundled unit contains at least 2 weeks of teaching materials or 3 weeks if you complete all of the enclosed labs. The title of this unit is Photosynthesis. It covers all topics related to chloroplasts, pigments, light dependent reaction, light independent reaction, and energy transfers.
What is included in this unit?
• A 54-slide PowerPoint presentation
• A Complete set of teaching notes for the teacher
• Student Notes Outline: Student completes the outline as the lessons are being taught
• 3 labs
• Jeopardy Review Game
• 3 Quizzes
• 3 Homework Assignments
• Crossword Puzzle
• Unit test.
Best Deal: This complete unit is included in my Cell Physiology Mega Bundle, that includes 5 complete units. Click link for details.
When appropriate, I have included each product as an editable Word document, and I have also included each product in pdf form. Each of these products is sold separately in my TpT store, but buying the entire unit in one download will save you money. If each of these products were purchased separately, the total cost would be $26.50.
All answers are included.
Topics covered are:
• Autotrophs, Heterotrophs, and the flow of energy through an ecosystem.
• Chemical energy and ATP: definitions/explanations of ADP and ATP, the structure of ATP, how ADP becomes ATP, uses of ATP
• Overview of photosynthesis
• Chlorophyll and other pigments: pigment, chloroplasts, chromoplasts, visible spectrum, absorption and reflection of different wavelengths of light, types of chlorophyll
• Leaf Anatomy: Students will label the parts of a leaf and define cuticle, palisade, spongy cells, mesophyll, stomata, vascular bundle, xylem, phloem
• Structure of the Chloroplast: Students will label a drawing and define outer membrane, inner membrane, thylakoids, grana, stroma, chlorophyll, photosystems.
• Electron carriers: Short discussion on electrons, energy levels of electrons, excited electrons, electron transport chain, NADP+, NADPH.
• An overview of the stages of photosynthesis: the light dependent reactions and light independent reactions. Includes an equation for photosynthesis that outlines the reactants and the products of photosynthesis.
• The Light reactions: photosystem I and photosystem II, splitting of water molecules, electron transport chain, production of ATP and NADPH, release of oxygen, ATP synthase
• Calvin Cycle: includes basics of carbon fixation, reduction of PGA to form PGAL, regeneration of RuBP, how glucose is formed
• Water loss from the plant
• Factors affecting the rate of photosynthesis: water, temperature, light intensity.
