The PlantingScience Power of Sunlight Toolkit provides background, materials lists, detailed procedures, and safety considerations for additional experimental methods related to photosynthesis and respiration. These tools can provide students the opportunity to ask a wider range of research questions during the open inquiry phase of The Power of Sunlight than would be possible using only the leaf disk floatation method. Alternatively, teachers may select one or more of these methods as classroom demonstrations of photosynthesis and/or respiration in action.
