This is a wonderful introduction to photosynthesis for biology students.  It has student-led inquiry and fun elements to the lesson that the students will never forget.  I especialy appreciate the use of music and song in teaching the concepts of photosynthesis and respiration which can be confusing for many students.  Great resource.
