Description:

In this activity, groups of learners work together to create edible models of chemicals involved in autotrophic nutrition. Learners use candy to represent elements involved in the chemical equations for chemosynthesis and photosynthesis. Learners complete a Lab Report based on their findings and understanding of chemosynthesis and photosynthesis. This detailed lesson guide includes background information, additional information for teachers of deaf students, and extensions.
