Biochemistry teaching resources

Worksheets and lesson ideas to challenge students aged 11 to 16 to think hard about enzymes, respiration and photosynthesis(bioenergetics)  (GCSE and Key Stage 3)

I will never forget when a teacher first showed me that respiration was photosynthesis in reverse. I had always considered photosynthesis to be the plant’s equivalent of respiration and I was doing A Level at the time!Respiration and photosynthesis: what's the difference?

Biochemical processes represent a fascinating area of science and there are hundreds of safe biochemical practicals that can be done in school to investigate what is happening inside organisms and cells.  The pages below provide resources to teach some key concepts involving bioenergetics.

  1. Biological molecules
  2. Food tests
  3. Enzymes
  4. Photosynthesis
  5. Respiration
