Lesson: ECOSYSTEM (Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration)

A. Pre-test:

Direction: Underline the word that is being described on each item below.

1. The green pigment in plants is called (chloroplast, chlorophyll, stomata).

2. (Photosynthesis, Light Energy, Chemical Energy) converts water and carbon dioxide into
oxygen and energy-rich organic compounds.

3. (Aerobic, Anaerobic, Pyruvic) is the process of producing cellular energy involving oxygen.

4. The powerhouse of a cell is called (cell wall, mitochondria, lysosome).

5. (ATP, NADP, Oxygen) is the product of respiration.

6. Respiration without the use of oxygen is what we call as (Aerobic, Anaerobic, ATP).

7. (Glycolysis, Hydrolysis, Pyrolysis) is the process of breaking down of sugar or sugar splitting
into smaller molecules.

8. (NADH, ADP, ATP) is not a product of citric acid cycle.

9. (Autotrophic organisms, Heterotrophic organisms, Viruses) are self-sustaining organisms.

10. Consumers of the ecosystem are known as (Autotrophic organisms, Heterotrophic

organisms, Viruses).

B. Objectives:

At the end of the lesson, the learners should:

1. Identify the structure and function of plant parts and organelles involved in photosynthesis.

2. Explain the the two types of cell respiration.

3. Differentiate basic features and importance of photosynthesis and respiration.

C. Materials needed:

 Science Links 9 Textbook  Projector

 Leaves of different colors  Video Presentation
 Laptop  Diagrams
D. Lesson:

 Introduction:
o Game – Leaf Relay
 It’s just like message relay but passing the leaf from one student to another.
o The students will answer by dyad the following questions:
 Have you ever wondered why leaves of plants you were holding have
different colors?
 Have you at a certain time asked yourself why you perspire a lot during
strenuous exercises just like the game we did?
o The dyad will share their answers in front of the class.

 Interaction:
o Discussion by the teacher about the Ecosystem (Photosynthesis and Cellular
o Oral Recitation

 Integration:
o Journal Writing about Ecosystem (Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration)
o Stop, Watch, React
o Quiz

E. Discussion Guide

 Presentation of a video about Ecosystem.
 Presentation of diagrams about Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration

 Deeper discussion on Ecosystem particularly about Photosynthesis and Cellular
Respiration using the following guide questions below:

 What is an Ecosystem?
 What are the components of Ecosystem?
 What is Photosynthesis?
 Where does Photosynthesis happen?
 What will happen to the organisms if light energy is not converted to chemical energy?
 What are the products of Photosynthesis?
 How is glucose converted into pyruvate?
 What is Cellular Respiration?
 Where does Cellular Respiration take place?
 Differentiate Aerobic from Anaerobic Respiration.
 Why are Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration important to the Ecosystem?

F. Exercises/ Quizzes

o Journal Writing about Ecosystem (5 sentences answers to each question)

 What will happen if photosynthesis and cellular respiration does not happen
properly to the plants? Why?
 In connection to the question above, what will happen to our body if we don’t
consume food and cellular respiration stops? Why?
o Stop, Watch, React
 The students will be given time to have a campus tour and observe the
 The students shall STOP and WATCH the things around them specifically the
 The students shall REACT and share in front of the class their reactions.

G. Post Test

I. Modified True or False (5x2 = 10 pts.)

Direction: Write TRUE if the statement is true. If false, write FALSE and change the underlined word /s
into the correct answer after the number.

________________ 1. Chloroplast is the green pigment in plants.

________________ 2. Photosynthesis happens in the chloroplast.

________________3. Oxygen and carbon dioxide are necessary for plants to manufacture their own

________________4. The chemical formula for cellular respiration is the reverse of the chemical
formula for photosynthesis.

________________5. The products of cellular respiration along with energy are Carbon Dioxide and

II. Essay: (5 pts. each)

Direction: Answer the questions below comprehensively.

1. Why is photosynthesis important for plants?

2. Why is cellular respiration important for plants?

3. As a student, what can you contribute to protect the ecosystem?
