Cell Homeostasis: Osmosis
The focus of this resource is cell homeostasis and, more specifically, osmosis. Students investigate the concept through a virtual lab, recording and analyzing data, creating sketches to represent vocabulary, and discovering the role of aquaporins in water transport through the cell membrane.
Learners compare a variety of prokaryotes and eukaryotes to determine similarities and differences among and between them.
The learner explores the structure and function of the nucleic acids and enzymes important to the process of synthesizing proteins.
Cell Specialization and Differentiation
Given examples, descriptions, and illustrations, students will be able to describe the role of DNA, RNA, and environmental factors in cell differentiation.
Survival of a Species
Given scenarios, illustrations or descriptions, the student will describe how long-term survival of species is dependent on changing resource bases that are limited.
Given examples, students will recognize the importance of taxonomy to the scientific community.
Taxonomy: Major Groups
Given illustrations or descriptions, students will determine the classification of organisms into domains and kingdoms.
Homeostasis: Ecological Systems
Given images, videos, or scenarios, identify and describe the responses of organisms, populations, and communities to various changes in their external environment.
Biological Systems: Homeostasis
Identify and describe internal feedback mechanisms involved in maintaining homeostasis given scenarios, illustrations, or descriptions.
