Week 3 characteristics of living things, homeostasis


August 22 2016
QFD: When science finally locates the center of the universe, some people will be surprised to learn they’re not it.
Wod: abiogenesis – or spontaneous generation
1.the now discredited theory that living organisms can arise spontaneously from inanimate matter; spontaneous generation.
Essential Question of the Day: Name 3 qualities that all living things share … For a and p name 3 elements that all living things have
This weeks learning objective: (biology) students will know and understand the similarities and differences between non living and living things and be able to demonstrate knowledge concerning homeostasis

Today’s performance objective : students will learn the proper note taking technique required for this class
Biology- notes . Living vs non living things ..students will demonstrate their understanding of homeostasis by completing a drawing demonstrating an object that also has works on the same principles .. .students will also write Cornell notes on the differences between living and non living things and turn them in by the start of the period on Tuesday


1) living vs non living things

QFD: There is no fate, yes you’re dealt the cards but it’s up to you how you play your hand.

Essential Question of the Day: Describe homeostasis as it relates to various body systems
This weeks learning objective: (biology) students will know and understand the similarities and differences between non living and living things

Today’s performance objective :
Biology- all students will demonstrate their knowledge of homeostasis and the nature of living things

1) You will create a document that displays 3 non living and 3 living from your own house..examples ..take pictures of these objects and make them into a document using google docs labeling them as living or non living things or print them out and be able to show the class on Wednesday ..you must also state why the object is living or non living

2) on the bottom of the document, you will place a picture of a non living object and relate it to homeostasis and explain 3 things that can affect the object and disturb homeostasis

QFD: There are many paths you take in life. Some you can choose, some are chosen for you.
Essential Question of the Day: give an example of how homeostasis can be demonstrated in every day life!
This weeks learning objective: (biology) students will know and understand the similarities and differences between non living and living things

Domain Eukarya
-Organisms have cells with a true nucleus and membrane-bound organelles.
Kingdom Animalia
-Organisms are multicellular with no cell walls and are heterotrophs.
Phylum Chordata
-Organisms possess notochord, postanal tail and pharyngeal pouches at some point during their life cycle. Organisms have bilateral symmetry, segmented bodies, developed coelom, dorsal nerve cord, closed circulatory systems, complete digestive system and an endoskeleton.
Subphylum Vertebrata
-Organisms have a vertebral column or a backbone. They move due to muscles attached to their endoskeletons. These organisms also have a digestive system with large glands (pancreas and liver) and a ventral heart with 2-4 chambers.
Class Mammalia
-Organisms have 3 middle ear bones, hair, and produce milk from mammary glands.
Order Carnivora
-Organisms primarily eat meat. They have 4 to 5 toes on each leg or arm and have sharp canine teeth.
Family Canidae
-Organisms have elongated feet and legs, 5 toes on the forefeet and 4 toes on the hindfeet, non-retractile claws, and usually form packs with strict social hierarchy systems.
Genus Canis
-This includes wolves, coyotes, jackals and domestic dogs.
Subspecies Canis lupus familiaris
-Canis is the Latin word for dog. Domestic dogs are ancestors of the grey wolf.
