Modeling Photosynthesis: The Calvin Cycle Kit

(in stock)


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.
