TeacherJamie Newcomb
Subject AreaComprehensive Science III
Grade Level8
Week #22
Unit of InstructionMatter Cycles - Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration
Standard(s) Taught

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.L.18.2  Describe and investigate how cellular respiration breaks down food to provide energy and releases carbon dioxide.

Advanced:

SC.912.L.18.7 Identify the reactants, products, and basic functions of photosynthesis.

SC.912.L.18.8 Identify the reactants, products, and basic functions of aerobic and anaerobic cellular respiration.

SC.912.L.18.9 Explain the interrelated nature of photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

SC.8.L.18.4  Cite evidence that living systems follow the Laws of Conservation of Mass and Energy.

 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:

• describe the process of photosynthesis using word equations: o carbon dioxide + water + sunlight —> sugar (food) + oxygen + water

• describe the role of light, carbon dioxide and water in photosynthesis

• describe the role of chlorophyll in the process of photosynthesis

• differentiate which organisms undergo photosynthesis

             o NOS Focus- Making predictions and using evidence to draw conclusions

• describe the process of cellular respiration using word equations: o oxygen + sugar (food) — > carbon dioxide + water

• explain how cellular respiration breaks down food to provide energy and releases carbon dioxide

• explain why plants and animals undergo cellular respiration

Advanced:
 
1. Identify the reactants, products, and basic functions of photosynthesis

2. Identify the reactants, products, and basic functions of aerobic and anaerobic cellular respiration

3. Explain the interrelated nature of photosynthesis and cellular respiration
