    Lecture
    This PowerPoint is a great introduction to get students thinking about where the atoms come from to build a plant and to build a human.

    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.

    Worksheet
    Students will be able to explain how energy is transferred in nature and the equations of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Hand out this worksheet before introducing cellular energy. Students are to fill in this worksheet while you teach about the transfer of energy from food to ATP. Students then use this worksheet as a central place to study from to prepare for a test or quiz.
