Photosynthesis: These photosynthesis cootie catchers are a great way for students to have fun while learning about Photosynthesis, and build their vocabulary. These cootie catchers contain the following Photosynthesis vocabulary terms: ♦ Photosynthesis, Carbon dioxide, Chlorophyll, Chloroplast, Oxygen, Stomata, Water, and Glucose These Photosynthesis cootie catchers come in color and black & white, and also come with a version where students can add their own definitions. All of this totals 4 pages which has students identifying vocabulary terms about Photosynthesis (with pictures) based from the definition. ***** Do a search for my other Cootie Catchers in the folllowing topics: ***** Space Science: ♦ Comets, Meteors, & Asteroids ♦ Constellations ♦ Eclipses ♦ Life Cycles of Stars ♦ Moon Phases ♦ Planets ♦ Solar System and Space ♦ Clouds ♦ Earthquakes & Plate Tectonics ♦ Erosion ♦ Fossils ♦ Layers of the Atmosphere ♦ Layers of the Earth ♦ Landforms ♦ Natural Disasters ♦ Natural Resources ♦ Rock Cycle ♦ Rocks and Minerals ♦ Seasons ♦ Soil ♦ Volcanoes ♦ Water Cycle ♦ Weather Life Science: ♦ Animal Adaptations ♦ Biomes ♦ Cell Organelles ♦ Classification and Taxonomy ♦ Ecosystems ♦ Evolution ♦ Food Web ♦ Habitats ♦ Human Body ♦ Life Cycles ♦ Photosynthesis ♦ Plants ♦ Six Kingdoms of Life Physical Science: ♦ Atomic Structure ♦ Circuits ♦ Element Compound and Mixture ♦ Force and Motion ♦ Forms of Energy ♦ Light Energy ♦ Magnets ♦ Reflection and Refraction ♦ Scientific Method ♦ Simple Machines ♦ Sound Energy ♦ States of Matter ♦ Thermal Energy ♦ Waves

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Photosynthesis

This is a lesson designed to meet specification points for the new AQA Trilogy GCSE Biology 'Bioenergetics' scheme of work. The lesson begins by pupils being introduced to the term 'photosynthesis' and then being asked to consider the raw materials that plants need in order for photosynthesis to occur. Pupils are then given three minutes to write down everything they have learnt about photosynthesis so far, with an extension task to write the word equation for the reaction. In the next part of the lesson pupils are introduced to the word equations and are challenged to write a balanced symbol equation for this reaction. Mid-lesson plenary involves a set of exam-questions (total marks = 9 marks) which they can complete in silence and then peer or self-assess using the mark scheme provided. Pupils are then introduced to the concept of endothermic and exothermic reactions, they are given the definition for an endothermic reaction and are then asked to 'think, pair, share' with a partner about what an exothermic reaction might be and whether photosynthesis is endothermic or exothermic. After 5 minutes, pupils are given the answers and they can mark their work. The final activity is for pupils to watch a video on the scientific investigation conducted by Van Helmont, pupils watch the video and answer questions on a worksheet which can then be self or peer-assessed using red pens. Pupils can choose their plenary activity - either writing quiz questions on the topic of the lesson or summarising what they learnt by writing a twitter message along with #keywords. All resources are included in the PowerPoint presentation, thank you for purchasing :)

KS3 Photosynthesis - testing a leaf for starch

This lesson plan in presentation form is suitable for higher level groups (some activities could be omitted to suit a low ability set) to achieve the following objectives: 1) state the word equation for photosynthesis - starter: list as many words to do with photosynthesis; extension - produce a description of photosynthesis from the key words 2) explain the process of photosynthesis - gap fill exercise with word bank included (answers provided in the powerpoint); two homework ideas: ideas to support the claim "photosynthesis is essential for life", anatomy of a plant - identify where the reactants and products of photosynthesis occur in the plant. 3) use appropriate methods during practical work - method sheet included (Testing a leaf for starch Practical sheet - final.doc); practical equipment and set up explained, questions on the practical given for pupils to complete - extension questions included.
