Topics Covered: Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): 1) HS-LS1-5 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes: Use a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy.  2) HS-LS1-6 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes Target: Construct and revise an explanation based on evidence for how carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen from sugar molecules may combine with other elements to form amino acids and/or other large carbon-based molecules. 3) HS-LS1-7 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes Target: Use a model to illustrate that cellular respiration is a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and the bonds in new compounds are formed resulting in a net transfer of energy.
