# 13.4: Concept Mapping - Connecting Ideas Visually

Either individually or as a group, create a concept map on a separate piece of paper or whiteboard that relates the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. The words in the word bank below should go into bubbles. Arrange these bubbles in a way that helps communicate relationships between the words, then connect the bubbles with lines that have a verb or action phrase attached to them. It might help to start by organizing the words into related groups. You can use words more than once.

For example, you could group $$\ce{CO2}$$ and ATP together, then draw a line connecting them to RuBisCO and Calvin Cycle. The verb for the connecting line could be “used in”. You could then draw a line from those two that said “produces”. What would that line connect to?
