"The Board Game...Cell Respiration & Photosynthesis"

Due Date: -__Tuesday 11/2/10_

General Objectives

Description: - This activity requires students to investigate the processes of cell respiration, fermentation and photosynthesis. Students create a board game, as an assessment, based on their thorough knowledge of the processes.

Instruction: -Students are to thoroughly study and investigate the processes of cell respiration, fermentation and photosynthesis. Students are to create a board game, monopoly for example, based on the processes. Students are to show knowledge of the steps involved, and comparisons of, within the processes.

         

     Name and describe the stages of cellular respiration and state the region of the eukaryotic cell in where each stage occurs—breakdown of macromolecules, glycolysis, conversion of pyruvate to Acetyl Co A, the Krebs’s cycle and oxidative phosphorylation (electron transport chain).

     Compare the two types of fermentation.

     Compare the processes of cell respiration describe the two main stages of photosynthesis—the light reactions and the Calvin Cycle.

     Describe how water, carbon, and nitrogen cycle between abiotic resources and organic matter in the ecosystem and how oxygen cycles through photosynthesis and respiration.

         

Assessment: -Students will be assessed with a teacher-developed rubric based on quality of research, and collaboration and quality. Their peers based on the quality and thoroughness of the board game will also assess students.

 

 

 

All games must include the following:

A list of pieces or items to play the game

A set of game rules

Game Components or Contents

        # of players

        Set-up

        Object of the game

        Rules for playing the game

        Winning the game

        Alternative ways of playing

All game contents must be boxed or packaged all together with group members names and period for turn in. Game must able to be played in one class period.
