Photosynthesis Flash Card Knowledge Acquisition As you know, photosynthesis can be hard to understand and there is a lot of vocabulary associated with it. The following exercise will help you become a human who has a great deal more knowledge about photosynthesis than the average biology student. Protocol: 1. Make a list of really important terms to know and understand: (You need to make this using your notes, and other information. Use the back of this paper to start your list.) To start you off: Chloroplast, stroma, stoma, leaves, mesophyll, NADP+ 2. Make a flash card for each term from a list that you produce based on the following: a. On one side of the card, write the name you see in the list. Make a shape or picture and a color b. On the opposite side of the card, write: i. a great definition that you will understand, ii. where the term is made or originates in photosynthesis iii. and what it is used for. iv. the same shape/pic and color as on the other side! Example of a good flash card: NADP+/NADPH, H+ High energy electron carrier. NADP+ is unloaded. NADPH is loaded with eMADE: thylakoid membrane reactions, light dependent reactions USED : Calvin Cycle. e- used for energizing bonds that will be in sugar (glyceraldehyde 3 phosphate and glucose) 3. Once you have your flash cards done, shuffle them up so that they are in a random order. 4. Sit with a partner and have them pull a flash card off the tope of the deck. 5. Then, tell your partner everything on the other side of the flash card. If you are correct, then you should be really proud of yourself. If you are wrong, have your partner give you hints until you get it all. 6. When you get it all, take the flashcard and put it down on the table in front of you. 7. After all of them are down on the top of the table, use your imagination to pretend that the table top is a cell. Mark off a chloroplast. Then help your partner organize them into the order and location that they are utilized/made in photosynthesis. 8. That will be diastolically tight. Mazel tov! Flashcard Game #2 9. Shuffle your flashcards and place them all on a table in front of you. 10.Close your eyes and pick any two flashcards from your set of cards. 11. Explain out loud how the two cards are related to each other, the more detail, the better. 12.Then, write down the relationships between the two cards.
