Photosynthesis and Light is a 5 page lab activity in which students graph data pertaining to the light reactions of photosynthesis (chlorophyll absorption and light intensity affecting ATP production). There is also a small section of reading for a brief overview of the light reactions, complete with questions. Each graphing exercise has analysis questions.
This is a great alternative to labs that require lab specimens, because it still gives students a solid grasp on how photosynthesis works and what it requires.
Answer key is included for analysis questions.
