III. Procedure:
A. Review
Teachers Activity Pupils Activity
From yesterdays lesson, who can define a forest? Yes, A vast area of woodlands that is covered by a
____________. thick vegetation, full timber trees and a wide
range of foliage.

Student 1: Emergent Layer


Very good! What are the four layers of rainforest? Student 2: Canopy Layer
Student 3: Understory Layer
Let us answer the following questions. Student 4: Forest Floor
Directions: Identify the layers of rainforest in the
following questions.

___________ 1. What is the primary layer of the Canopy Layer 1. What is the primary layer of
forest? the forest?
____________2. What layer of the forest do Forest floor 2. What layer of the forest do
earthworms, bacteria and fungi flourish? earthworms, bacteria and fungi flourish?
____________3. What layer does sunlight most Emergent Layer 3. What layer does sunlight
received? most received?
____________4. Where does small shrubs and small Understory Layer 4. Where does small shrubs
trees live? and small trees live?

B. Motivation
Show a picture of Nemo. Who is this in the picture?

Its Nemo.

Where did Nemo live? Under the sea.

Since Nemo lived under the sea, what else can you see? coral reefs.

What else have you observed? Learners answer may vary.

Yes, very good. We will now travel under the sea and we
will talk about the place where Nemo live.
C. Presentation
Who among you here have already gone to beaches and
try to pick some corals?
Have you observed the different formations of coral Me teacher!
reefs? Learners answer may vary.
Coral and reef often come together in the form of coral
reef, yet the two differ from each other.

D. Developmental Activity
I want you to watch a video clip of the Great Barrier
Reef.
(the teacher will let the learners watch and observe the
video clip)
The teacher will now check what have the learners
observed from the video.

E. Discussion
From the picture that you have observed, what is the Barrier Reef
formation of that reef?
Very good, that is an example of barrier reef. Now, who Atoll and Fringing Reef
can give me another formation of a coral reef.
Fringing Reef- also called shore reefs,
because they grow directly from a shore.
Example is the Babuyan Island.
What are the definitions of these different formations? Barrier Reef-formed offshore and is
separated from the shorelines by channels
called lagoons. Example is that from the
video.
Atoll-a circular reef formation that surrounds
a deep or large lagoon. One example is the
Tubbataha reef in Sulu Sea

Coral reefs plays an important role to people and to 1. It serves as habitat, shelter and breeding
other living things in many ways. sites for different species of marine animals.

tropical storms, strong current and wave
actions by slowing down the water before
getting to the shorelines.
3. It increases the biodiversity of the world
and supplies food for millions of people every
year.
4. it provides resources and income to people
to feed their families.
5. it helps decrease the amount of carbon
dioxide in the water.
6. It helps in developing the socio-economic
status of a community with the eco-tourism
and educational research on marine
ecosystem it offers.
