Photosynthesis and Respiration
Photosynthesis is how plants make food for themselves and for the rest of us! Respiration is how animals and other organisms break down food to release energy that cells can use! This special energy is called ATP!
Photosynthesis and Respiration Video Games, Virtual Labs & Activities
Learn about cellular respiration, the process by which cells make ATP (cell energy)! Explore the stages of aerobic respiration with video tutorials, and then perform each stage yourself and check your understanding. Glycolysis, the link reaction, the Krebs cycle, and the electron transport chain await!
Build molecular models that illustrate key principles of energy transfer through the chemical reactions of photosynthesis and respiration. Also, use a model to show how carbohydrates can be used to build other important biomolecules. This activity was designed for the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), specifically HS-LS1-5, HS-LS1-6, and HS-LS1-7 (From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes).
Learn how photosynthesis works by performing the light-dependent reactions and the Calvin cycle yourself. It this interactive, the biochemistry of photosynthesis comes alive! Also, learn about the anatomy of the leaf and where exactly the reactions of photosynthesis take place.
to collect oxygen and glucose to keep the man alive through respiration!
Then collect carbon dioxide and water to help the tree do photosynthesis!
Don’t fall off the screen and watch out for enemy hermit crabs and jumping
fish! By the time your done, you’ll be an expert on the basics of
photosynthesis and respiration!
