Session: Explore Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration with Algae Beads
Explore Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration with Algae Beads
Teach both photosynthesis and cellular respiration with algae beads in your biology class. This lab is fun, easy to use, and gets students thinking about what types of cells do photosynthesis, respiration, or both. Students will explore both photosynthesis and cellular respiration in a single organism using a simple colorimetric assay to yield qualitative and/or quantitative results. We’ll also demo how to make your own algae beads.
