the children for teaching the topic

CONTENT ANALYSIS
NEW TERMS

Algae, small protozoa, pseudopodia, food vacuole

FACTS

Algae, bacteria and small protozoa are the

main food of amoeba
The amoeba gathers its food with the help of

pseudopodia
The waste materials are expelled through the
body surface

Digestion in amoeba

CONCEPT

RESOURCES

LEARING

Chart of amoeba, model of amoeba, moving picture
of amoeba, chart showing the digestion process in
amoeba

CLASSROOMINTERACTION PROCEDURE PUPIL ACTIVITY/RESPONSES
Teacher comes to the class with informal talk
Have you had your breakfast today?

Yes

What happened to the food we eat?

It was digested

Do you think in other organisms also the Yes
digestion is same like human beings?
Yes all organisms possess their own way to get
the food digested
What is the difference between unicellular and Amoeba
multi cellular organisms? Can you name
anyone

O.K.

Today we are going to study about nutrition in
amoeba
Teacher shows a chart of amoeba and explain
Teacher shows a model of amoeba

Students observe carefully

ACTIVITY 1
Teacher shows a diagram of amoeba and asks
the students to draw and label it in your activity
card

The amoeba gathers its food with the help of
pseudopodia. Digestion takes place inside the
food vacuole present in the cytoplasm. This
food vacuoles contain enzymes that can digest
carbohydrate, lipids and proteins. Therefore the
process of digestion in amoeba is intracellular
digestion. The waste materials are expelled
through the body surface
CONCLUSION

ACTIVITY 2
Teacher shows a chart of digestion taking place
in amoeba and asks the students to fill up the
blank (any 1)

CONCLUSION

The amoeba gathers its food with the help of
pseudopodia. Digestion takes place inside the
food vacuole present in the cytoplasm. This
food vacuoles contain enzymes that can digest
carbohydrate, lipids and proteins. Therefore the
process of digestion in amoeba is intracellular
digestion. The waste materials are expelled
through the body surface

ACTIVITY 3
Teacher shows a moving picture of amoeba and
asks the students what you understand from
this? and write it in your activity card
CONCLUSION

The amoeba gathers its food with
the

help

of

pseudopodia.
