The Laws of Conservation and Photosynthesis
Overview
  • Module Description
    • The laws of conservation of matter and conservation of energy are demonstrable through an examination of the photosynthetic process. This module will afford students the opportunity to examine the relationship between matter and energy as evidenced by transformations that take place during photosynthesis. The student work will lead to a deeper understanding of the laws of conservation drawn from students' previous knowledge of a biological process.

  • Tasks
    • Teaching Task Template Task (Design your own lesson)

      After researching texts on photosynthesis, the law of conservation of matter, and the law of conservation of energy, write an informational essay that describes how the photosynthetic process can be used to demonstrate both the law of conservation of matter and the law of conservation of energy. Support your discussion with evidence from your research.
