Lesson Plan: The Light-Dependent Reactions Biology

This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to describe the reactions that occur in the light-dependent stage of photosynthesis and recall the products formed.


Students will be able to

  • describe the process of noncyclic photophosphorylation,
  • compare noncyclic and cyclic photophosphorylation,
  • describe the role of electrons and electron carriers in the light-dependent reactions,
  • state the products of the light-dependent reactions.


Students should already be familiar with

  • the fact that plants carry out photosynthesis,
  • the basic photosynthesis equation.
