Product Description
Objectives: Review the process of photosynthesis, including light and dark reactions.

Activity: Create a 3D pyramid. View a video on photosynthesis. Use the pyramid and video to answer questions.

Teachers, once students create their pyramid they have a "review sheet" on photosynthesis for end of course testing in Biology. If you want them to review the light and dark reactions in more detail, students can stop the video as needed.


Answer Key:
Energy from reactions is called: ATP
1. Equation in words
---------------------------- +light energy
Carbon dioxide + water + light energy yields glucose + oxygen

2. Words to symbols/balanced equation
-------------------- +light energy
6CO2 + 6H2O -----------------; C6H12O6 + 6O2 [subscripts TPT issue]

3. Thylakoid

4. Stroma

There are many videos on light/dark reactions and photosynthesis. Some are easy, some are more difficult. Nova, Brain Pop, Khan Academy, and Bozeman Science all possibilities. Change the video referenced to on the sheet as you see fit. The site to the video provided was chosen because it is short (2.45 min), accurate, and covers end of course test prep info.

You may want to pose additional questions. For example, what are organisms that make their own food called? [Autotrophs] or What is the source of energy for photosynthesis [sunlight]
