Monday: B Day
Aim: What do all living things need?
Do Now: Copy chart from board
Procedure: Students will continue to discuss the nine life functions in detail.
Nutrition: Organisms obtain and process food/supplies energy
Transport: Circulation and absorption of nutrients/O, H2O, nutrients and waste move to and
away from cell
Respiration: Chemical reactions that release energy for life activities/Aerobic-O and Anaerobic-no
Excretion: Removal of waste materials because of respiration/CO2 and H2O
DONT CONFUSE Egestion: Getting rid of waste from digestion
Regulation: Control and coordination of all activities/Responding to stimuli Endocrine-Nervous
Synthesis: Producing a complex substance from simple substances/PHOTOSYNTHESIS
Growth: Increase in size and /or number of cells of an organism/
Reproduction: Making of a new organism/Extinction could occur in entire group does not reproduce
but individual will not die without reproduction.
Metabolism: Total of all processes taking place within the cells of an organism/Homeostasis:
Maintaining a stable internal environment regardless of changes externally. Organisms constantly strive for homeostasis.
Homework #19: Using your text try to label the organelles of the animal
Tuesday: A Day
Aim: What are the organelles of the cell? What is the function of these parts?
Do Now: Take the skill worksheet and a Glencoe Text to your desk.
Procedure: Students will interpret the diagrams of the animal and plant
cell on page 33 of the text book. They will complete a chart asking for the cell part, the function and the location of that
organelle. Have a specimen of an animal cell and a plant cell under a microscope for students to view and compare to their
diagrams in the book. USing the video disc player show students various cells and their parts.
Homework #21: Label the parts of the animal cell using the diagram in your UPCO book on Page
Wednesday: B Day
Aim: How do we examine a plant cell?
Do Now: Students will gather their lab supplies for Lab #5. Page 77 (Observing cell structure)
Procedure: Students will locate various parts of a plant cell by createing a temporary wet
mount of an onion plant. Another group of students will create a temporary wet mount of their cheek cells and the class will
compare the most obvious differences between an animal and a plant cell.
Homework #20: Practice UPCO Book: Page 65 - Page 68 all Questions
Thursday: A Day
Aim: What are the differences between an animal and plant cell?
Do Now: Take a plant cell diagram to your desk.
Procedure: Using the overhead show the students the organelles in a plant
cell. Discuss the differences between animal and plant cells. Complete the organelle descriptions in your text
Pages 69-73 all.
Homework #21: Define the scientific terms on page 79-80
Friday: B Day
Aim: How can we create an accurate replica of a cell.
Do Now: Lab teams will decide what materials they will use to create their gel cells.
Procedure: Create a key for your cell explaining what materials you chose, what organelle
they will represent and construct your gel cell.
If extra time allows we will continue onto these notes: Certain cells in multicellular organisms have certain jobs. This is called cell specialization. Cell Organization:
The cell is the basic unit of structure of all living things. Cells are grouped together in levels or units. These specialized
units perform simlar functions. i.e. stomach cells, muscle cells, blood cells, etc.
Groups of cells make up tissue. (stomach tissue) Groups
of similar tissue make up an organ. (stomach) A group of organs that work together to carry out a major body function
are the organ systems. (digestive system) All systems that perform the life functions make up an organism. (human) Describe
cell organization using a pyramid on the board. Have students
look at different cells under the microscope.
Students will continue to work in the UPCO book by completing the chart on Page 81. Organelles
and their function.
