Program of Studies: UnderstandingsProgram of Studies:Skills and ConceptsRelated Core Content
SC-H-UD-U-1Students will understand that the many body cells in an individual can be very different from one another even though they are all descended from a single cell and thus have essentially identical genetic instructions. Different parts of the instructions are used in different types of cells. SC-H-UD-S-1Students will analyze the parts within a cell responsible for particular processes and create analogous models for those processes SC-H-UD-S-2Students will identify a variety of specialized cell types and describe how these differentiated cells contribute to the function of an individual organism as a whole.SC-HS-3.4.2Students will understand that most cell functions involve chemical reactions. Food molecules taken into cells react to provide the chemical constituents needed to synthesize other molecules. Both breakdown and synthesis are made possible by a large set of protein catalysts, called enzymes. The breakdown of some of the food molecules enables the cell to store energy in specific chemicals that are used to carry out the many functions of the cell SC-HS-3.4.4Students will understand that plant cells contain chloroplasts, the site of photosynthesis. Plants and many microorganisms (e.g., Euglena) use solar energy to combine molecules of carbon dioxide and water into complex, energy-rich organic compounds and release oxygen to the


  
Essential Question: What is a cell?
  1. What are the functions of the organelles in a cell?
  2. What different type of cells are there?
  3. What are the differences between plant cells and animal cells?
  4. What type of research is currently be done with cells?

Culminating Activity/Assessment, A product or performance that:           

Students will explain tissue engineering, its benefits and risks as well as choice their own viewpoint and explain.  Students will be given the websites needed to research the “tissue engineering” topic.  They will be asked to show their work either through a written paper or visual, but will be asked to present both. This will assess their knowledge at the end of this unit on cells by applying to the real world of science.  

Resources / Technology:

  •  audio, computers, internet access, Smart Board, paper, colored pencils, PowerPoint

Day __1___    of     __4__ day lesson.

 Lesson Detail:  Introduction to the Cell  

1.   Objectives

  • Students will identify the components of the cell and describe their corresponding functions. 
  • Students will identify the differences between animal cells and plant cells. 
 

2.    Connection to Content Standards:

 SC-HS-3.4.2 Students will understand that most cell functions involve chemical reactions. Food molecules taken into cells react to provide the chemical constituents needed to synthesize other molecules. Both breakdown and synthesis are made possible by a large set of protein catalysts, called enzymes. The breakdown of some of the food molecules enables the cell to store energy in specific chemicals that are used to carry out the many functions of the cell.

SC-HS-3.4.4Students will understand that plant cells contain chloroplasts, the site of photosynthesis. Plants and many microorganisms (e.g., Euglena) use solar energy to combine molecules of carbon dioxide and water into complex, energy-rich organic compounds and release oxygen to the

 

3.    Instructional delivery

  •  
    • We will discuss the cell as a class through lecture and using our textbooks
    • A video (http://videos.howstuffworks.com/hsw/6009-understanding-cells-the-organelles-video.htm) will be shown to give a visual of the cell.
    • The students will be broken into two groups. One group will be given a animal cell worksheet and the other group will be given a plant cell worksheet.  The students will use their notes and book to identify the structures on the worksheet and give a detailed description of their functions. Once the groups are finished, they will present to the class their findings.  
    • As a class, the students will create a Venn Diagram on the Smart Board that depicts the differences and similarities between the animal cell and plant cell.
 

4.    Resources

·   Computer, Internet, SmartBoard 
 

5.   Wrap-up/Student Reflection

·   Students will complete an end of the day reflection on listing one of the components of the cell and a detailed description of its function.
