Photosynthesis is one of the toughest topics for students to grasp. I have tried to teach photosynthesis many different ways- and notes are necessary on this topic. This 20 slide power point includes student notes.

The PowerPoint is organized as follows:


-overview of light reactions

-specific steps of light reactions

-overview of dark reactions

-specific steps of dark reactions (plus Calvin Cycle fill in)

This is recommended for grades 9+. Student notes included. Editable.
