Modeling Photosynthesis: The Calvin Cycle Kit

$114.40
(in stock)

Description

Grades 9–12. Working in groups, students use molecular models to explore the reduction of carbon dioxide to various organic molecules, which occurs during the Calvin cycle. Each group models a different reaction in the cycle and determines what is released and/or consumed during the reaction. This helps students understand concepts that are central to photosynthesis and how those concepts apply to the reaction they model. After completing the model-building activity, the groups then present their reaction to the class so everyone understands the process by which plant cells store chemical energy as organic molecules.

Recommended as a supplement or extension to AP® Biology Lab 4 or for Pre-AP®, honors, or college prep biology courses. Kit contains enough materials for 8 small groups of students working cooperatively.
