Dark Reactions
The dark reactions of photosynthesis (Calvin Cycle) are presented in this learning experience to show where these processes take place in the plant as well as the specific reactions involved.
Light Reactions of Photosynthesis
Drawings and visualizations are used to help participants conceptualize the location and steps involved in the light reactions of photosynthesis. The drawsing include light reactions of photosynthesis including location and steps for non-cyclic and cyclic photophosphorylation.
Plant Anatomy
Tissues and cells of root, stem, and leaf anatomy in both dicots and monocots are investigated in this learning activity.
Plant Growth Regulation
Plant growth regulators, including auxin, gibberellin, cytokinin, abscisic acid, and ethylene, are investigated in this learning activity to demonstrate how these chemicals (hormones) affect plant growth and development.
Plant Water Relations
Plant water relations are presented in this learning activity to help participants understand the components of water potential, explain how water moves through plants, provide examples of plant adaptations to water stress, and have a general understanding of how water potential can be measured.
