"The Board Game...Cell Respiration & Photosynthesis"
Due Date: -__Tuesday 11/2/10_
- 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.
-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.
