Week 2: FridayMarch 11, 2011
This lesson is designed for 10
grade biology students
Michigan Content Expectations:B1.1C
- Conduct scientific investigations using appropriate tools and techniques(e.g., selecting an instrument that measures the desired quantity—length,volume, weight, time interval, temperature—with the appropriate level of precision).
- Evaluate scientific explanations in a peer review process or discussionformat.
– Explain how cells transform energy (ultimately obtained from the sun)from one form to another through the processes of photosynthesis and
. Identify the reactants and products in the general reactionof photosynthesis.
– Describe how individual cells break down energy-rich molecules toprovide energy for cell functions.
– Describe how organisms acquire energy directly or indirectly fromsunlight.
- Illustrate and describe the energy conversions that occur duringphotosynthesis and
– Recognize the equations for photosynthesis and
andidentify the reactants and products for both.
– Explain how living organisms gain and use mass through the processesof photosynthesis and respiration.
Students will adapt the reactants, products and overarching themes forrespiration into a foldable.
Students will prepare the film canisters for data collection on Monday.
Students will explore the structure of a stem using prepared slides in thelab, “Leaves, Stems and Roots.” (
Students will discuss the lab, “Leaves, Stems and Roots” while challengingthe misconceptions that plants exist for our use.
Students will need:
Analysis questions for “Leaves, Stems and Roots”
