    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
    This is an introductory lesson into how to design an experiment. Students will practice writing a hypothesis. Students will create procedures to conduct their own experiment. Students will create a data table for their experimental data. Students will write a conclusion that has them focus on evidence from their experiment.

    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.
