Plants Activity 4.3 Differentiation


Students may work in groups of three or four if you are short on molecule kits.

Extending the Learning
  • At the end of the Activity, have students explain the process of photosynthesis to a partner.
  • Have the students “act out” photosynthesis by assigning them molecules using signs. Have them move around the room to represent the process by linking and unlinking hands.
  • Have students compare the chemical reactions for combustion, cellular respiration, and photosynthesis. What do they notice about these reactions?
