This collection of lessons is part of a larger unit focused on Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems. Students are introduced to photosynthesis through a phenomena, demonstrations and investigations. Students are provided opportunities to deepen understanding through five lessons culminating with the “Great CO2 Race” investigation and an engineering challenge. Several extensions and differentiated learning opportunities are also provided.
The lessons were developed for 70 minute classes.
