Description

Do your students need practice for standardized tests? Do you need a way for students to review content while also checking for accuracy? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this photosynthesis and respiration self checking worksheet is for you.

 

I created this line of self checking resources to help teachers, parents, and students by providing simple yet comprehensive practice on a variety of topics. The questions are designed to be rigorous and require students to predict, reflect, connect, and think critically about the content being presented.

 

The concept of this resource is simple: each answer choice has a letter. At the end of the worksheet, students will complete a riddle by matching the question numbers with the answer letters. If the riddle doesn’t make sense, students know that there must be an error in their work.

 

Let’s get our students thinking, reading, and reviewing vocabulary with this self checking practice that is¬†compatible with multiple styles of teaching.¬†Your purchase includes both¬†PDF¬†and¬†digital copies¬†that are perfect for pre-reading, homework and review, or even sending to absent students.

 

Topics covered in this resource include:

  • photosynthesis
  • respiration
  • stages of each
  • cell organelles where each takes place
  • products
  • reactants

 

Who is this resource for?

This resource can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-9. It provides a variety of practice covering the mentioned topics.

 

How Can I Use this Photosynthesis and Respiration Worksheet?

  • Emergency Sub Plans
  • An independent work station in a set of stations
  • Differentiation ‚Äď Assign this practice as reteaching for students who have yet to show mastery.
  • Homework
  • Creation of Independent Work Packet for students who are not able to be present for direct instruction.
  • Extension activity for early finishers or for students who show a special interest in the topic
  • Use as a square on a Choice Board
  • Interactive Notebooks: Print 2 pages in one and cut apart. Glue mini pages into notebooks with room for annotations on the side
  • Interactive Notebooks: Print entire PDF as a mini booklet and add to notebooks using these simple instructions.

 

What’s Included?

Purchase includes a printable PDF file in color with answer key. On page 2 of this resource you will find a link to a student friendly Google Doc version of this file. You will be able to copy this file and use it with Google Classroom or any other paperless initiative.

NGSS Standards covered by this Photosynthesis and Respiration Worksheet:

NGSS MS-LS1-6
Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms. Emphasis is on tracing movement of matter and flow of energy. Assessment does not include the biochemical mechanisms of photosynthesis.
NGSS HS-LS1-7
Use a model to illustrate that cellular respiration is a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and the bonds in new compounds are formed, resulting in a net transfer of energy. Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding of the inputs and outputs of the process of cellular respiration. Assessment should not include identification of the steps or specific processes involved in cellular respiration.
NGSS HS-LS1-5
Use a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy. Emphasis is on illustrating inputs and outputs of matter and the transfer and transformation of energy in photosynthesis by plants and other photosynthesizing organisms. Examples of models could include diagrams, chemical equations, and conceptual models. Assessment does not include specific biochemical steps.
NGSS MS-LS1-7
Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism. Emphasis is on describing that molecules are broken apart and put back together and that in this process, energy is released. Assessment does not include details of the chemical reactions for photosynthesis or respiration.
