D. Concepts:
a. Photosynthesis is a process whereby plants manufacture their own food by
CO2
trapping light energy from the sun to convert carbon dioxide (
) and water (
H2

O) into sugar/glucose.

b. The process of photosynthesis are as follows:


Step 1: Chloroplasts in the plant cells capture the energy from sunlight.
Step 2: The captured light energy is used to produces sugar and oxygen from
CO2 .
water and
Step 3: Sugar produced are used by the plant cells for energy.
Step 4: Oxygen exits through stomata on the underside of the leaf.

A. Preliminaries
Teachers Activity

Students Activity

a. Greetings:
Good morning class.

Good morning maam.

b. Opening prayer:
Earl, please led the prayer.

Earl: Let us put ourselves in the


presence of the Lord. In the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy

Spirit.
Praise be thy name of our Lord Jesus
Christ.
Others: Now and forever, Amen.
All: In the name of the Father, and of the
Son and of the Holy Spirit Amen.
Please be seated.

c. Checking of attendance:
Beadle is there any absentees today?

Beadle: There are no absentees today.


All are present maam.

d. Checking of assignment:
Yes maam.

Leaders of the group, did you


check the assignment of your group
members?

Our topic for today is about this

(Teacher will present a


photosynthesis to the class.)

diagram

of

So who can tell me what the diagram is all Kelpie: Balancing equation maam
about? Moreover, why do you think so? Yes, because there is a chemical equation.
Kelpie?

Okay thank you Kelpie. How about you


Lydia?

Thank you also Lydia. So Lydias right, this


diagram represents the process of
photosynthesis.

C. Lesson Proper
Teachers Activity

Students Activity

So our topic for today is all about


photosynthesis
(The teacher will flash pictures.)

Class what do you think is the Bridgette: They are important raw materials
significance of those pictures? Yes or the reactants for photosynthesis.
Bridgette?

Is it correct class?

Yes maam.

Okay, thats correct. It is true that Ermine: Without the presence of light energy
carbon dioxide, water and light energy coming from the sun, plants cannot make their
are the important factors in the process own food.
of photosynthesis. What do you think is
the role of light in this process? Yes
Ermine?

Ermine is correct. The light energy is


very important in the process of
photosynthesis. The captured light
energy from the sun is used to produce
the glucose/sugar, which is the food of
the plant and the oxygen. Is it clear?

Yes maam.

Based from the explanation that you Jade: The reactants are the carbon dioxide,
had heard a while ago. What is now the water and light energy while the products are
general chemical reaction/equation of the glucose and oxygen.
photosynthesis? Yes Jade?

Jade is correct. Now the general


balanced equation of photosynthesis is;

6CO2+6H2O+Light
C6H12O6+6O2
Are there any questions?

energy

Okay lets come now to the process of


photosynthesis. I have here a video
presentation. While you are watching
take note on how the process occurs.
Okay class?

None maam.

Yes maam.

(After the video presentation)


So what is now the first step/place that Elizabeth: The chlorophyll which is the green
takes place in the process? Yes pigment inside the chloroplast in the plant cells
Elizabeth?
captures the energy coming from the sun.

Very well said. Who else? Yes, Hatori: The captured light energy is used to
Hatori?
produce glucose from water and carbon
dioxide.
Thats correct last one. Yes, Jemarie?

Jemarie: The sugar/glucose produce are used


by the plant cells for energy and also oxygen
exits through the stomata on the underside of
the leaf.

Yes all that you have been said are


true. Basically that is how the food
making of the plant happens. Are there
any questions?

None maam

So much for that get one half sheet of


paper
IV Evaluation
Enumeration and Identification

1-3 the reactants in the process of photosynthesis


4-5 the products in the process of photosynthesis
6. It captures the light energy from the sun.
7. It is a process whereby plants manufacture their own food.
8. It is where oxygen exits and it is found underside of the leaf.
9-10 the general balanced chemical equation of photosynthesis
V Assignment
Study the next topic and answer the Enrichment Activity on a one whole sheet of paper
on pp. 174.
