S7L2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe how cell structures, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems interact to maintain the basic needs of organisms.

b. Develop and use a conceptual model of how cells are organized into tissues, tissues into organs, organs into systems, and systems into organisms.

c. Construct an argument that systems of the body (Cardiovascular, Excretory, Digestive, Respiratory, Muscular, Nervous, and Immune) interact with one another to carry out life processes.

Week Of October 10, 2018

Standards:
S7L2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe how cell structures, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems interact to maintain the basic needs of organisms.
a. Develop a model and construct an explanation of how cell structures (specifically the nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, cell wall, chloroplasts, lysosome, and mitochondria) contribute to the function of the cell as a system in obtaining nutrients in order to grow, reproduce, make needed materials, and process waste. (Clarification statement: The intent is for students to demonstrate how the component structures of the cell interact and work together to allow the cell as a whole carry out various processes. Additional structures, beyond those listed, will be addressed in high school Biology.)

Announcements:

I will NOT be conferencing with my 3rd period.  In order to alleviate the large conferencing numbers in the AC classes, the teachers have given me an amount from each of their 3rd period classes and most of my 3rd period classes have been distributed amongst the other teachers. Therefore, I will be sending emails at random to various parents with regard to conferences this week. However, if you have not heard from one of your child’s teachers by the end of this week. Please feel free to contact me to make sure that there were no mistakes made.
