For a class of 30 working in groups of 3. Looking for a way to brighten your photosynthesis lessons? Use algae beads! In this activity, students learn how to make their own algae beads and get hands-on experience developing and testing a hypothesis. They begin by learning about the correlation between light wavelength and photosynthesis. From there, student groups form hypotheses about how different colored light filters affect photosynthesis rate. Finally, they test their hypotheses using colored filters, their algae beads, and a bicarbonate indicator solution. This lab activity addresses the following Next Generation Science Standards: HS-LS1-5 and MS-LS1-6. Note: Kit is shipped with perishable material. The algae must be grown in a lab for 2 weeks prior to use.
