    Experiment
    Students will learn how photosynthesis is used by a plant to make sugars. These sugars are then used to perform cellular respiration to make energy. The sugars are converted into larger molecules like cellulose to help build the structure of plant cells. Students should also recognize that plants grow by cell division.

    Experiment
    The goal of this basic lab is break the misconception that photosynthesis is how plants grow. Students should also learn that plants grow by cell division. Students will be able to move past the misconception that plants use photosynthesis, not cell division, to grow.

    Experiment
    Students will learn how to disrupt homeostasis in plants and use this disruption to understand biological processes. Students will be able to integrate how many processes are involved for plants to grow. Students will be able to design a guided inquiry experiment.
