Item description

Plant Structure and Photosynthesis consists of eight printable black-and-white Student Worksheets (PLUS Answer Sheets) that will not just save you lots of prep time but also help your students to consolidate their understanding of this essential and fundamental topic in biology. Suited to students in years 10 – 12, Plant Structure and Photosynthesis can easily be used as classwork, homework, revision exercises or even tests.

Content covered:

  • stages of photosynthesis: light-dependent and light-independent, including steps involved and inputs/outputs

  • factors affecting the rate of photosynthesis, such as temperature and light intensity

  • structure and function of the chloroplast

  • endosymbiotic origin of the chloroplast

  • comparing photosynthesis in C3 and C4 plants, including how C4 plants are able to avoid the wasteful process of photorespiration

  • important plant structures and their functions: stomata, xylem vessels, phloem, root systems, mesophyll cells, root hairs

  • the process of transpiration

  • capillary action in xylem vessels

  • comparing xylem and phloem

Along with printable worksheets, a digital (PowerPoint) version is included here at no extra cost, giving teachers a choice as to which they prefer to use – taking into account the different learning styles of their students.

Plant Structure and Photosynthesis is not just about answering questions. Your students will enjoy the ‘active’ nature of the tasks here, including:

  • analysing diagrams

  • labelling diagrams

  • adding features to diagrams

  • colour-coding

  • completing fill-in-the-gaps passages

  • conducting Internet research

Plant Structure and Photosynthesis includes an Answer Key (PDF) with images in full colour that look great on the big screen and can be used to facilitate good class discussion. Answers provided are also highly detailed, so there is no need to research or fact-check here; it’s all been done for you!

I hope you and your students find this product useful and that you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
