MONDAY:

Photosynthesis

Date: 10.19.15

Name:

Ms. Wittenburg

Grade/Subject: 7th Grade Life Science

Objectives:
Students will read a section of the book on photosynthesis, and then take notes on the
topic. Students will then draw a diagram of the process of photosynthesis happening
within a cell.

Methods of differentiation:

Do Now:
Students will answer the questions based on the picture shown on the smartboard.

Grouping Strategies:

Lesson Details:

Vocabulary:

1. Do Now
2. Presentation on Photosynthesis
3. Students will take notes on photosynthesis
4. Students will diagram the process of photosynthesis within a plant cell

Preferential seating for students who have trouble seeing
the board or require more regular attention and/or
redirecting. Students will be paired heterogeneously to
aid in student growth. Some students will receive leveled
worksheets to match their progress on topic. Other
students will have the opportunity to extend their
knowledge with “extension activities”.
