Photosynthesis and Respiration - PowerPoint & Handouts

What is the relationship between photosynthesis and respiration? Students will compare the process of cell energy as they pretend they have traveled to a distant planet and discovered an alien life form. What gases are found on this planet and what do these aliens inhale and exhale?

Students will learn about the relationship between photosynthesis and respiration in this guided notes sheet and lab activity or demonstration. Using Bromothymol Blue (btb), carbonated water, and other easily obtained materials, students learn about the processes of photosynthesis and respiration and how without plants, there would be no animals on earth. Includes Teacher Notes and Extension Activities/Notes.

Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism. Emphasis is on describing that molecules are broken apart and put back together and that in this process, energy is released. Assessment does not include details of the chemical reactions for photosynthesis or respiration.
Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms. Emphasis is on tracing movement of matter and flow of energy. Assessment does not include the biochemical mechanisms of photosynthesis.
