At the end of this unit, I will be able to explain how the sun supplies living things with energy, describe the sequential process of photosynthesis, and compare the two-part process of respiration to photosynthesis using guided notes, and sophia.org tutorial information. 

These lessons are designed to increase student understanding of Photosynthesis and Respiration, and the importance of these processes on living things.  Students will have the ability to view Powerpoint slides, take guided notes, listen and view a Youtube video, assess themselves, and create a Venn diagram to compare the steps of the energy processes.
