2-8-2012 Life Science - Super Cellular Units

Continuing my way through the standards, offering links, lessons, and ideas to help teach the 
Core Curriculum Content Standards
Science Grades 6-8

5.3 Life Science: All students will understand that life science principles are powerful conceptual tools for making sense of the complexity, diversity, and interconnectedness of life on Earth. Order in natural systems arises in accordance with rules that govern the physical world, and the order of natural systems can be modeled and predicted through the use of mathematics.

A. Organization and Development :  Living organisms are composed of cellular units (structures) that carry out functions required for life. Cellular units are composed of molecules, which also carry out biological functions
By the end of grade
Content Statement
Cumulative Progress Indicator (CPI)
Systems of the human body are interrelated and regulate the body’s internal environment.
Model the interdependence of the human body’s major systems in regulating its internal environment.

Essential functions of plant and animal cells are carried out by organelles.
Model and explain ways in which organelles work together to meet the cell’s needs.
All organisms are composed of cell(s). In multicellular organisms, specialized cells perform specialized functions. Tissues, organs, and organ systems are composed of cells and function to serve the needs of cells for food, air, and waste removal.
Compare the benefits and limitations of existing as a single-celled organism and as a multicellular organism.
During the early development of an organism, cells differentiate and multiply to form the many specialized cells, tissues, and organs that compose the final organism. Tissues grow through cell division.
Relate the structures of cells, tissues, organs, and systems to their functions in supporting life.
