Photosynthesis – Grade 7 Science Worksheets

Schedule a Free session to clear worksheet doubts



Every topic or lesson that a tutor teaches has an objective of making the students understand concepts related to the topic. For this, they need assessment tools which allow tutors to measure how well a student has assimilated the theory taught. One of the most basic tools is worksheets.

These worksheets on “Photosynthesis” can help both tutors and students alike to review the lesson, get a feedback and eventually improve their respective performances.

Considering the importance of this topic and its significance in learning higher levels of science in the future, it is important that students understand the process and concept of ‘Photosynthesis’ well.

Photosynthesis is the process by which light energy is tapped and changed into chemical energy in the form of the food sugar. Carbon dioxide is taken in by the plants and oxygen is given out.

Sunlight + carbon dioxide + water = sugar + oxygen

 Carbon dioxide and water are combined and their atoms bonds to form a sugar molecule. The bonds of the sugar molecule store the energy gained from light.

The following is the chemical reaction for photosynthesis:


Where does photosynthesis occur?

Photosynthesis is carried out by chloroplasts within the cells of plants. Chloroplasts contain chlorophyll (green color). Chlorophyll absorbs sun’s energy that is sunlight. The photons in light (i.e., the light particles) hit with the electrons in the chlorophyll, which transforms the energy.

A group of bacteria called cyan is originally the chloroplast. This is one of the examples of symbiosis. Here, the cyan bacteria were passed onto upon the host cells as eukaryotic host cells millions of years ago and the method of photosynthesis began. Not only are these ancient symbionts, cyan bacteria which are spread all over the plant in the oceans (three-fourth of the earth’s surface) are responsible for most of the photosynthesis occurring on Earth today.

(Note: A eukaryote is an organism with complex cells, or a single cell which has a complex structure.  These cells have the genetic material in the chromosomes in the nucleus of the cell.)


Photosynthesis and the properties of energy

In photosynthesis, light energy is converted to chemical energy and stored in the form of food sugars. The law of conservation of energy is followed that is the amount of light that energy input equals the amount of chemical energy that is the output.

 Photosynthesis requires CO2+ Water H2O and sunlight. The processes by which plants and some other organisms like algae capture light energy and use it to make food from carbon dioxide and water. 

Chemical equation for Photosynthesis


Glucose is a type of sugar that provides us with energy.

Glucose is needed by all forms of life to produce energy.  It is an essential part of the stored food.

The process by which glucose is broken down is called respiration –

During respiration, the chemical energy stored in glucose is converted into other forms of energy, such as mechanical energy or thermal energy.

Plants use some of this energy to grow, reproduce, and perform other life functions. Unused energy is stored as food by the plants.

Plants go through both photosynthesis and respiration.
