This is a partially developed activity description. It is included in the collection because it contains ideas useful for teaching even though it is incomplete.

Summary

The process of cellular respiration is often very difficult for students to understand or find relevant. This lesson contains several POGIL activities that help students progress toward a greater understanding of Cellular respiration. They will relate the process of cellular respiration to enzyme activity by examining the action of dehydrogenase enzyme. It begins with a simple comparison of an electron micrograph and a drawing allowing students to identify the location of the steps of Cellular Respiration. Students will also observe models that will guide them toward being able to: identify the reactants and products for each of the major steps in Cellular Respiration, explain the process of oxidation/reduction relating to the release of energy that will be stored in ATP, compare energy input to energy output, explain the general role of enzymes in this metabolic process.
