SC.8.L.18.1 Describe and investigate the process of photosynthesis, such as the roles of light, carbon dioxide, water and chlorophyll; production of food; release of oxygen.
SC.8.N.1.6 Understand that scientific investigations involve the collection of relevant empirical evidence, the use of logical reasoning, and the application of imagination in devising hypotheses, predictions, explanations and models to make sense of the collected evidence.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• describe the process of photosynthesis using word equations:
carbon dioxide + water + sunlight —> sugar (food) + oxygen + water
NOS Focus- Making predictions and using evidence to draw conclusions
Photosynthesis Song or Poem Formative assignment directions:
(Due 1/23/2020 for periods 2-4; due 1/28/2020 for periods 6-8)
Photosynthesis Project Directions:
(Due 1/29/2020 for periods 2-4; due 1/31/2020 for periods 6-8)
This project is to demonstrate your understanding of the process of photosynthesis. This is an independent project in which you will create a model, drawing, comic book, video, storybook or short written skit that describes the process of photosynthesis (what happens in the cells of a plant’s leaves to create glucose from carbon dioxide and water).
Another type of project can be chosen, but it must be cleared by the teacher first.
No power point presentations are acceptable.
No matter what form your project takes it should meet the following requirements:
**Each part is worth 20 points for a total of 80 points.
This project will be a summative grade for the 3rd nine weeks.
