 LEARN - KNOW - MEMORIZE 

Complete the assignments, learn the information, and be prepared to turn in FLASHCARDS the first week of school. You will have assessments on the infomation.

Use the internet and other resources to complete the following:

Part I: Human Body Organ System Overview - Name the 11 organ systems of the human body, and briefly state the major organs and functions of each system. 

Create Flashcards, using notecards with the name of the organ system on front and list the major organs and function of each system on the back.

  • Integumentary System
  • Skeletal System
  • Muscular System
  • Nervous System
  • Endocrine System
  • Cardiovascular System
  • Lymphatic System
  • Respiratory System
  • Digestive System
  • Urinary System
  • Reproductive System
The flashcards should include a general overview (major structures and general functions) of all systems. 
 
For example, the front of the card should read skeletal system and the back of the card should include the major parts of the skeletal system such as  bones, cartilage, joints. You do not have to be specific in naming types of bones or actual bones yet.  In addition, list the general functions of the skeletal system such as protection and support body organs, framework for muscles, blood cell formation, storage, etc. 
 
Cutting a 3X5 card in half is perfect and will help you edit and limit the amount of information you write!
 

Part II. Basic Chemistry - Name and identify the first 30 elements

Create flashcards, using notecards of the first 30 elements on the perodic table.  The name of the element on the front of the card and the atomic symbol, atomic number and atomic weight (round to nearest whole number) on the back of the card.

Part III. Overview of the Cell- Anatomy of the ANIMAL cell only- Identify and describe the organelles on an animal cell diagram.  Briefly explain the function of each cell organelle. (Do not build a cell model at this time.) 

Create flashcards using notecards with the name and picture/sketech of the cell organelle on front and function of the cell organelle on back.
