Friday
Oct 12
QFD: October had the tremendous possibility. The summer’s oppressive heat was a distant memory, and the golden leaves promised the world full of beautiful adventures. They made me believe in miracles.
Essential Question of the Day : compare and contrast the various body systems of the rat with your knowledge you have obtained this week concerning the body system that you have been researching
This weeks learning objective : Students will know and understand HS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms
Today’s performance Objective : students will use proper lab techniques to examine the various body systems of a rat and answer questions
1) rat dissection day 2

1) Homeostasis is something that all organisms, whether they are a rat, human, or cactus, need to have. What is homeostasis and how do the organ systems help the body maintain it? In your response, include 3 examples of how the organ systems contribute to homeostasis in the body.

2) Think about the rat dissection and name two organs that are located in close proximity to each other. Explain how they may work together to maintain homeostasis and which specific body systems are in involved

3) In order to grow and develop, a rat would need nutrients and water. Where does it get these and how does every cell get what they need?

4) Name an organ that can be considered part of more than one body system. Explain its roles in each body system that it belongs to (one organ in at least 2 different systems).

2 lab write up is due by end of the period

Week 9 presentations body systems

Monday Oct 1
QFD:
This weeks learning objective : HS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms
Today’s performance objective : Students should know and be able to draw and label the parts of the nervous system and identify the function of those parts
Case study – Nervous system
You will investigate a disorder of the nervous system and create either a poster, a PowerPoint , or a another form of presentation to demonstrate your knowledge of this disease or disorder.. In your presentation you must include :
1) the disease and how it is obtained (genetic, virus, infection, etc)
2) which body systems it also affects and how it affects those systems
3) a list of the symptoms of the disease and how many people are affected by this disease
4) how is Homeostasis adversely affected by your disease
5) possible cures or treatments
6) a written summary that hypothesizes what might be the best form of treatment for this disease backed up by medical data and what scientists should investigate to eliminate this disorder for ever
