This file includes three activities that can be used to teach, review and assess students’ understanding of photosynthesis. A guide and answer key for each activity is included to assist in implementation.
1. Photosynthesis Foldable
Teach students about the process of photosynthesis. Students will then add diagrams and drawings to a foldable to include in their notebooks. The pictures will serve as a reminder of each part of photosynthesis.
2. Modeling Molecules Activity
It is difficult for students to understand how water and carbon dioxide can combine to form sugar and oxygen, especially at the elementary level. This activity gets students up and moving around as they simulate the process by acting as molecules of oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, and water. Smaller models are also included for students to recreate the activity in their notebooks.
3. Photosynthesis Recipe Card
Assess student understanding of the process of photosynthesis by having them create a "recipe card" for photosynthesis. Students list the necessary components and products of photosynthesis. They also write a short description of the process and draw a simple diagram.
