Subject: Biology Theme: Investigating the physiology of living things Topic: 6.0 Nutrition

Objective: Synthesising factors affecting photosynthesis Learning Outcomes: At the end of the lesson, students should be able to: Design an experiment to investigate the effect of light intensity on the rate of photosynthesis Moral values: Being cooperative, being honest and accurate in recording and validating data. Educational Emphasis: Science process skills- Observation, Communicating, Experimenting, Measuring and using numbers, interpreting data Manipulative skill- using and handling science apparatus and materials properly Instructional Aids/ materials: laptop, liquid-crystal display (LCD) projector, a few springs of Hydrilla sp., 1% sodium hydrogen carbonate solution, distilled water, 60 w bulb, 500 ml beakers, a boiling tube, stopwatch, thermometer, metre ruler, sharp razor, picture, drawing about procedure, whiteboard, marker pen, tables label, graph papers. Previous Knowledge: 1. Students have basic knowledge about the components needed for photosynthesis process. 2. Students have basic knowledge about the factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis
