  1. 1. PHOTOSYNTHESIS GROUP 4 Light Energy and Plants
  2. 2. Learning Objectives • By the end of this lesson, students should be able to: -explain that the process of photosynthesis converts light energy to chemical energy. - explain that the sun is the original energy source for most life on earth. -identify the reactants and products of photosynthesis. -explain which reactions in photosynthesis are light dependent which are light independent. -explain why many plants appear green to us here on earth. Return to TOC
  3. 3. Presenters  John: Explain that the sun is the original energy source for most life on earth and the basics components needed for photosynthesis. Share short Discovery Education video on photosynthesis.  Monique: Explain that the process of photosynthesis converts light energy to chemical energy. Share the Nova Illuminating Photosynthesis resource.  Terence: Identify the reactants and products of photosynthesis, and explain which reactions in photosynthesis are light dependent which are light independent. Share the resource Teach Engineering.  Michelle: Explain why many plants appear green to us here on earth. Share the resource Biology 4 Kids. Return to TOC

  11. 11. Different wavelengths of visible light are seen by the human eye as different colors. WHYWHY AREARE PLAPLANTSNTS GREGREEN?EN? Gamma rays X-rays UV Infrare d Micro- waves Radio waves Visible light Wavelength (nm)
  12. 12. Why are plants green? Reflected light Transmitted light Sunlight minus absorbedSunlight minus absorbed wavelengths or colorswavelengths or colors equals the apparent color ofequals the apparent color of an object.an object.
  13. 13. • The green color comes from chlorophyll in the chloroplasts • Chloroplasts absorb light energy and convert it to chemical energy Light Reflected light Absorbed light Transmitted light Chloroplast THE COLOR OF LIGHT SEEN IS THE COLOR NOT ABSORBED
  14. 14. • Photosynthesis is the process by which autotrophic organisms use light energy to make sugar and oxygen gas from carbon dioxide and water AN OVERVIEW OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS Carbon dioxide Water Glucose Oxygen gas PHOTOSYNTHESIS
  15. 15. Photosynthesis • Occurs in chloroplasts • The green color comes from chlorophyll in the chloroplasts • Chlorophyll is the green pigment that captures light for photosynthesis • The pigments absorb light energy and create sugar and oxygen
