This NGSS-aligned lecture provides an outline for: photosynthesis, cellular respiration. cycling of carbon, how humans are changing the normal carbon cycle, aerobic and anaerobic respiration. It is intended for introducing topics and student note-taking between more in-depth activities.
**Check out the FREE student handout: Photosynthesis and Respiration Student Handout
Real life examples are provided and slides come with teacher notes. I understand each teacher covers topics a little differently, so feel free to edit and differentiate for your classroom and students' needs. Make sure to preview it in "present" mode to view all the animations. Enjoy!
HS-LS1-5 Use a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy.
HS-LS1-7 Use a model to illustrate that cellular respiration is a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and the bonds in new compounds are formed resulting in a net transfer of energy.
**NOTE: Does not cover the details of calvin cycle, kreb's cycle, Electron transport chain, etc.
