suggestion for middle school students


We have used Cellular Respiration in Yeast with high school students, typically ninth graders. For seventh and eighth graders we recommend Is Yeast Alive? (/sci_edu/waldron/#yeast). This activity provides a simpler approach to yeast metabolism which is more appropriate for most middle school students. You could use pages 1-3 of the student handout for Is Yeast Alive? and omit the part on growth of yeast if you want to focus just on metabolism.
