Photosynthesis is one of the most important biological processes on earth – without it the food chain would fall apart. In this class students will design and conduct experiments which test a plant’s ability to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. Using Vernier LabQuest interfaces and CO2 and O2 sensors students will collect data that will allow them to determine the effects of various treatments on the rate of photosynthesis. Special attention will be paid to experimental design and the importance of controls, dependent and independent variables, and testable hypotheses. This program is 1 1/2 hours. This program takes place in the Micro World Investigate Lab.

Science Curriculum Correlation(s):6.L.1.2, 6.L.2.3, Bio.4.2
