We began the day with an entry task designed to pull forward student learning about cellular respiration just before the Thanksgiving holiday break. The white board summary showing the entry task, as well as the formulas for both cellular respiration and photosynthesis are shown below:
We then transitioned to a class assignment where students were divided into four teams, with each team responsible for answering one quarter of the worksheet questions answered in the Crash Course Biomolecules video (below). After the video, student groups worked together to talk through their responses to ensure consistency. Finally, students re-grouped in order to share answers, thus serving to review the video content and provide students the opportunity to discuss and debate answers.
