Algae Bead Photosynthesis Kit
For a class of 30 students working in groups of 3. Looking for a way to brighten
your photosynthesis lessons?
Use algae beads! In this activity,
students learn how to make their
own algae beads and get hands-on
experience developing and testing a
hypothesis. They begin by learning
about the correlation between light
wavelength and photosynthesis.
From there, student groups form
hypotheses about how different
colored light filters affect photosynthesis
rate. Finally, they test their
hypotheses using colored filters,
their algae beads, and a bicarbonate
indicator solution. Supports
NGSS and 3-dimensional instruction.
