Ward's® Photosynthesis And Cell Respiration Lab Activity
In the first part of this activity, students learn how to use the floating leaf disk method to measure the rate of net photosynthesis (i.e. the rate of photosynthesis minus the rate of cellular respiration). They use this method to show that net photosynthesis occurs in leaf disks in a solution of sodium bicarbonate, but not in water. Questions guide students in reviewing the relevant biology and analyzing and interpreting their results. In the second part of this activity, student groups develop hypotheses about factors that influence the rate of net photosynthesis, and then each student group designs and carries out an investigation to test the effects of one of these factors.

Theprocesses of photosynthesis and respiration take in and release the gasses CO2and O2.Duringphotosynthesis, cells take in release .During respiration, cells take in and release
Lesson Plan | Modeling Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration
This activity has been entirely revised to help students develop a sophisticated understanding of the basics processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. New sections develop student understanding that the (1) products of photosynthesis are used not only for cellular respiration, but also to synthesize plant molecules and (2) photosynthesis can increase plant biomass and cellular respiration can decrease plant biomass, so changes in a plant’s biomass depends on the balance between photosynthesis and cellular respiration. An answer key is now available for this activity.
Lab 5 Cellular Respiration by Kris Layher - Biology Junction
We do not have a key for this activity, but I believe that the information in "Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis – Important Concepts, Common Misconceptions and Learning Activities () should make it relatively easy to prepare a key. In addition, you may want to consult a good introductory textbook, since the information needed is generally covered in introductory biology textbooks. If you have any additional specific questions, please let me know and I will be happy to answer your questions.
