Cell Energy Photosynthesis vs Cell Respiration. 1 Minute Quick Write. What do plants need naturally to survive?. Notice the illustrations of the plant leaf below. What plant cell organelle do you recognize?. Chloroplast. Chloroplasts are present in plant cells.
What do plants need naturally to survive?
What is the chloroplast taking in (the reactants)?
The same as what we said plants need to survive
What is the chloroplast producing or giving off (the products)?Let’s figure out the equation for Photosynthesis?
Use your manipulatives to create the equation for photosynthesis(Place the correct name of the molecule below it in the equation and make sure your equation is balanced using the correct coefficients)
Write out your correct balanced equation of photosynthesis.
carbon dioxide light energy
Write out your explanation using the above terms.
Think Pair Share photosynthesis
There is a saying “If you talk to a plant, the plant will grow”Explain, to a neighbor, how the phrase above is relevant and what process is taking place.
Before we go into cellular respiration, let’s review what happens in the process of photosynthesis.
(use the words of your manipulative)
Energy is packaged in glucose during the process of photosynthesis. However, the glucose molecule is bound together. Do you think cells can use this glucose in its current form?
So what has to happen to the glucose, if it is bound together, in order for cells to use it?
The bond has to be broken and a more useable form of energy should be produced.
If glucose is used and photosynthesisenergy in the form of ATP is produced, in which cell organelle do you think cellular respiration takes place?
What types of cells have mitochondria?
animal cells, plant cells, fungus cells & protist cells
Place your arrow in the center of the equation. What do we start the reaction with?
If glucose is being used and energy in the form of ATP is produced, place those two word pieces of your manipulative on the correct side of the arrow.
Place the remaining word pieces on the side of the equation you think they should go.
Does your Cellular Respiration Respiration using the same manipulative.formula look like this one?
C6H12O6 + 6O26CO2 + 6H2O + ATP
What will the cell use the ATP for?
(energy for the cell to
use for other processes)
Name some specific process of the cell.
Why do you think cells under go the process of cellular respiration?
Explain the process of cellular respiration using the following terms:
carbon dioxide food molecules
What do you notice about the reactant and products of cellular respiration in comparison to the reactant and products of photosynthesis?
