  • Instructional Strategy: Prior Knowledge & Connections

    Process Standards:

    • Goal 1.8 organize data, information and ideas into useful forms (including charts, graphs, outlines)

    Content Standards:

    • Science 3. Characteristics and interactions of living organisms

      Time Allowance: 80 minutes

      Description: This lesson will show similarities and differences between photosynthesis and cellular respiration.


      Classroom Component:

      Photosynthesis vs. Cellular Respiration

      Part 1

      Students seem to understand photosynthesis fine but they seem to have a hard time understanding the concept of cellular respiration. I created these small lesson plans to help the students connect the two processes.

      Materials:

      • Templates provided in lesson plan
      • Paper, I used larger paper but any size will do
      • Markers
      • Rubric: Use mine or create your own: http://rubistar.4teachers.org

      Directions for various lesson plans:

      Concept Map

    • Hand out template for concept map. You will have to label the arrows for them before you make copies of the map. I couldn’t seem to get that worked out on the computer. Look at diagrams I have attached to figure out what goes on each arrow.
    • Hand out words that will be used for concept map.
    • On a different piece of paper students are to redraw the concept map/arrows and place the words in the appropriate circle.
    • T chart

    • On a piece of paper have the students create a T chart.
    • Use the list of words and phrases titled T chart, decide where the phrases should go: photosynthesis or cellular respiration.
    • Photosynthesis Drawing:

    • On a new piece of paper have the students draw a flow chart drawing that illustrates the process of photosynthesis.
    • Have them draw a sun, cloud, a plant and an animal fairly close together.
    • On the sun—label Photosynthesis
    • Draw an arrow from the sun to the plant. On the arrow put LIGHT.
    • Draw an arrow from the cloud to the plant. On the arrow put WATER.
    • Draw an arrow from the plant to the animal. On the arrow write OXYGEN.
    • Draw an arrow from the animal to the plant. On the arrow write CARBON DIOXIDE.
    • Make a small box on the plant somewhere and draw an arrow to somewhere on the page. This is illustrating the fact we are going into the plant.
    • Next to the arrow, draw a simple plant cell, label this CELL.
    • Next to the cell draw the organelle chloroplast. Put an arrow between the cell to the organelle. Label this CHLOROPLAST. This illustrates that the processes take place here.
    • Next to the chloroplast draw two circles. In one circle put light reaction and in the other circle put Calvin Cycle/Dark reaction. Above the circles put 2 reactions.
    • Draw an arrow from the chloroplast to the two circles.
    • Next to the 2 circles write the formula C6H12O6. Above this formula write GLUCOSE. Draw an arrow from the circles to the formula.
    • On this page in the corner have students summarize photosynthesis:
      • What is the equation for photosynthesis?
      • What are the reactants (goes in formula) for photosynthesis?
      • What are the products (made from formula) for photosynthesis?
      • Where does photosynthesis take place?
      • What are the reactions that take place in photosynthesis?
    • Cellular respiration drawing:

    • On a new piece of paper have the students draw a plant and a person. Have the person hold some kind of food source.
    • above the plant and human write—GLUCOSE (Food source)
    • Draw an arrow to the next picture which will be a simple version of a plant and an animal cell. Label above the cells—CELLS.
    • Draw an arrow to the next picture—a mitochondria. Label the organelle—MITOCHONDRIA.
    • Draw an arrow to the next picture, 3 circles. In the circles write: Glycolysis, Krebs, Electron Transport Chain. Above the circles write the words—3 REACTIONS.
    • Draw an arrow from the three circles to the word ATP (energy). On this page in the corner have students summarize cellular respiration:
      • What is the equation for cellular respiration?
      • What are the reactants (goes in formula) for cellular respiration?
      • What are the products (made from formula) for cellular respiration?
      • Where does cellular respiration take place?
      • What are the reactions that take place in cellular respiration?
