And hs LS 1-3 Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis.
Today’s performance objective : students will create a PowerPoint that displays all of the body systems including the structure and function of each systems w pictures by conducting an experiment they created
1) Finish a slideshow that illustrates all of the body systems and explains how they maintain homeostasis day 3 of 3 ( 1 picture, explanation of system function and how it maintains homeostasis )

2 ) quiz
1) This system is made up of organs that break down food into protein, vitami
, carbohydrates, and fats, which the body needs for energy, growth, and repair.
2) A system that is made up of bones, ligaments and tendons. It shapes the body and protects organs.
3) This is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. It is your body’s control system
4) This system brings air into the body and removes carbon dioxide.
5) It allows humans to produce children.
6) It is made up of a group of organs that transport blood throughout the body.
7) This system is made up of a group of glands that produce the body’s long-distance messengers, or hormones.
8) This system is our body’s defense against infections and diseases.
9) This system is a defense system. It filters out organisms that cause disease, produces white blood cells, and generates disease-fighting antibodies. It also distributes fluids and nutrients in the body and drains excess fluids and protein so that tissues do not swell.
10) This is made up of tissues that work with the skeletal system to control movement of the body.
11) This system eliminates waste from the body
12) system has the largest organ in the body and is part of your defense mechanism against germs

1. “The idea of an organism interacting with its environment may sound simple, but it is actually pretty marvellously complicated.” Hank Green

2. “Life is powerful, and in order to understand how living systems work, you first have to understand how they originated, and developed and diversified over the past 4.5 billion years of Earth’s history.” -Hank Green

3. “Earth is like a cheap rental house in a college town, there’s always somebody living there, but tenants are always moving in and out, and new tenants moving into old one’s rooms and sometimes the electricity gets turned off because nobody paid the power bill” Hank Green

4. “And like a rental house the Earth isn’t invincible; I mean, a good semester of back-to-back frat parties could tear a house up pretty fast, and then you know then everybody gets evicted and some new tenants move in.”-Hank Green

5. The core of earth is as hot as the surface of the sun.

6. The first life on earth probably wasn’t even life as we think of it.

7. It was just a collection of chemicals surrounded by a membrane.

8. So the first living things were prokaryotes.

9. The Archaean, the Proterozoic, and the Phanerozoic are the three early eras.

10. The Phanerozoic being what we’ve been experiencing for the last half billion years or so.
