Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration Project´╗┐
The students are to use the Modeling Photosynthesis handout as a guide to create a product of their choice to teach someone about Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration. They may use a Photo Story, Movie Maker, Screen Cast, Publisher, Poster or any other medium they choose with teacher approval. The project will be due at the end of class on Friday. Hard copies of projects will be handed in while electronic copies should be submitted on Netschool. The project should include and answer the following questions:
o A thinking map comparing and contrasting photosynthesis and cellular respiration.
o The type of sugar glucose represents --- monosaccharide, disaccharide, or polysaccharide?
o Where in a plant does photosynthesis occur?
o The source of the carbon in the sugars made by plants?
o From what reactant in photosynthesis does the oxygen released by plants comes?
o Inside what organelle does photosynthesis occur?
o Where do plants get the energy fro photosynthesis?
o Where is this energy stored in glucose?
o Name of the process that breaks down sugars to release energy to do cellular work.
o What energy molecule is used by cells to do work?
o What waste gas is given off during cellular respiration, and how does this help plants?
o Where does cellular respiration occur in plants and animals? (organelle name)?´╗┐
