Photosynthesis

Learning Objective

Students will know photosynthesis is a type of respiration that uses light energy to produce sugars from carbon dioxide and water and that this process requires plants to draw in carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the air.

Essential Questions

• How does light energy transform carbon dioxide and water into sugars?
• How do plants and microbes use sugars?
• How does energy flow from the plant to the ecosystem?
• How does energy flow from the ecosystem to the plant?
• What roles do microbes play in respiration?
• How does respiration affect changes in the environment?

Performance Tasks

• Observing and comparing plant growth using seeds, soil, and water.
• Using microscopes to observe cells, leaves, and root structures.
• Analyzing data to pinpoint which roots, leaves, and stems have made the most sugar.

Skills

• Explain how energy and nutrients are exchanged between organisms in a food web.
• Describe how a plant and its environment interact.
• Explain how organisms in a food web exchange energy and nutrients with each other.
• Explain how organisms in a food web interact with the environment.
• Describe how organisms in a food web cycle carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus through the environment.
• Describe how organisms in a food web cycle energy through a system.
• Explain how photosynthesis uses sunlight energy to make sugars from carbon dioxide and water.
• Describe how living cells function and work together.
• Describe how living cells regulate their own chemical processes.
• Describe the roles of enzymes and other chemicals in chemical reactions.
• Describe how organisms are able to regulate these processes for their needs.

Understandings

• Plants need light energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into sugar for food and for energy. • Sugar is the fuel that drives the metabolic pathways of the plant. • Plants draw in carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the air.
