Using the parts provided, build an 11 x17” poster (model) to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions into new molecules that support growth and/or release energy in an organism.

 

Performance Expectations - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-LS1-7. Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on describing that molecules are broken apart and put back together and that in this process, energy is released.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include details of the chemical reactions for photosynthesis or respiration.]
