A great video about photosynthesis. This one shows, through experiment, that starch is made during the process of photosynthesis. While the presenter is kind of difficult to understand, being able to see the experiment performed is very helpful.
This PDF file is a handout of the classic leaf disk lab activity. It details student directions and puts an emphasis on the scientific process. A well-detailed rubric is included. Always a great activity with the kids!
A collection of Powerpoint presentations that review the main concepts of photosynthesis and provide several activities for students to try. The activities really help to reinforce the main concepts presented here.
This virtual lab is one of the "dirty dozen" labs required by the Advanced Placement Biology course. It it a nice alternative if the school does not have the needed supplies to do the lab exercise in the classroom.
This PDF file is a handout that contains web addresses of several virtual photosynthesis labs and activities to go along with them. It is nice because it puts both the lab and the classroom work in the same place.
Grading is not the same as assessing. How do you know if your students have learned what you intended? This article provides some good advice for checking for understanding. It also provides links to many other resources that can be used to assess student learning. The methods, concepts, and resources presented here can be used to see if your students have grasped photosynthesis.
