Catalysts and Enzymes

For Teachers 9th - Higher Ed
Biochemists experiment with the oxothermic decomposition of hydrogen dioxide by adding manganese dioxide. They observe how pepsin enhances the action of acid on the digestion of egg white proteins. They use yeast to make bread rise. All...
Lesson Planet

Microbes

For Teachers 7th - 9th
Microbiology beginners feed different sweetening agents to yeast and measure carbon dioxide production to estimate energy contained in each. They set the trials up in zip-top plastic baggies and then measure gas volume by water...
Lesson Planet

Population Growth in Yeasts

For Teachers 7th - 10th
Students design an investigation using yeast. In this environmental engineering lesson plan, students design an investigation to determine how environmental factors affect the growth of yeast. They will collect quantitative data and...

Alcoholic Fermentation in Yeast

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Biology learners investigate the effect of sucrose concentration on yeast alcoholic fermentation. During the instructional activity,they compare and contrast the processes of cellular respiration and alcoholic fermentation. They design...
Lesson Planet

Chemical and Physical Changes

For Students 7th - 9th
Though it states that it is a activity, this technically is a set of directions for a series of six activities exploring physical and chemical changes. Chemistry or introductory physical science aces examine carbon dioxide production of...
Lesson Planet

Measuring Temperature and the Production of CO2 in Yeast

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students use a model experiment to complete an experiment on yeast. In groups, they identify the independent and dependent variables and use the scientific method to complete the activity. They record their observations and discuss them...
Lesson Planet

Yo! Gert-making yogurt

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Young scientists or chefs culture yeast to produce yogurt. The materials and a general description of how make yogurt are provided, but there is very little detail otherwise. You could use this as an activity when your biology class is...
Lesson Planet

Yeast: A Helpful Fungus

For Teachers 5th - 12th
Students explore what causes bread to rise and how fungus is found in many forms. In this fungus lesson plan students complete a yeast lab and discuss what happened.
Lesson Planet

It's Alive! Using Microorganisms in Cooking

For Teachers 5th - 9th
Students create a KWL chart about food. In this chemistry lesson, students differentiate physical and chemical changes. They explain how microorganisms are used in food preparation.
Lesson Planet

Yeast

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students study the characteristics of yeasts. For this biology lesson, students conduct experiments to measure yeast respiration. They discuss the favorable conditions needed for growing them.
Lesson Planet

Alcoholic Fermentation Lab

For Students 9th - 12th
For this alcohol fermentation worksheet, students design an apparatus to study the alcoholic fermentation of yeast. Once complete, students answer 8 short answer questions.
Lesson Planet

Cell Energy - Bubbling Yeast

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Students identify that yeast are a single celled fungi that are a great model organism for studying respiration in the classroom. They also fill the bulb of a disposable pipet (eyedropper) with yeast, then submerge the pipet in a test...
Lesson Planet

ME402: Growth of Yeast

For Teachers 5th - 8th
Students investigate the growth of yeast in a sugar solution. They verify the pressure of carbon dioxide using bromothymol blue. Students are asked to describe the difference between the contents of the test tubes used and to explain...
Lesson Planet

How To Make Yeast Cells Thrive

For Teachers 7th - 10th
Students set up and run the experiments they designed in the instructional activity, 'Population Growth in Yeasts,' using simple yeast-molasses cultures in test tubes. They demonstrate understanding that several environmental factors can...
Lesson Planet

TE Activity: Yeast Cells Respire, Too (But Not Like Me and You)

For Teachers 7th - 10th
Student observe and quantify the respiration that occurs in yeast-molasses cultures. They complete an effective experiment in order to examine how to think critically about the results.
Lesson Planet

What Do Bread and Beer Have in Common?

For Teachers 7th - 10th
Young scholars listen to an explanation of yeast cells and how they effect bread and beer. They discuss the ways alcohol affects the human body and participate in an indirect observation about cell respiration in yeast-molasses cultures.
Lesson Planet

Barf Bag Microbiology

For Teachers 4th - 10th
Students investigate and determine which types of carbohydrates Baker's yeast prefers. They crumble Cheerios, Smarties, and Fruit Loops and feed them to the yeast and watch what happens, when the bags begin to barf.
Lesson Planet
