OBJECTIVES
Keeley Library Resources : Click on the Internet Links in the First Column on the Left.
Matter of Life LE II
  • Cell Structure and Function
  • Anthropological & Biological Sciences See Biology Encyclopedias

  •  
    BH1

     

    CONTENT: Parts and Functions of a Cell  Cellular
     function is based on the  cellular organelles, eg.,cell membrane,  mitochondria, nucleus, ribosomes, and  chloroplasts, etc.
    PERFORMANCE: Oral Presentation,Cell Model : Students will work as part of a group to build a model of a cell out of materials they choose, and make a group presentation to the class.
    Traits and Fates
    LE 1, 2, 3, 5
  • Cell Structure and FunctionAnthropological & Biological Sciences  See Biology Encyclopedias

  •  
    BH2 CONTENT: The Struture and Function of DNA and Protein Synthesis: Life processes in the cell are based on molecular interaction. 
    PERFORMANCE: Model of DNA and Protein:  Students will work as part of a group to build a DNA model. the protein synthesized and any visible mutation. 
    Traits and Fates
    LE 7,8
  • Cell Structure and Function
  • History of DNA
  • Genetics and Heredity
  • Anthropological & Biological Sciences See Biology Encyclopedias
  • BH3 CONTENT: Meiosis VS. Mitosis: Cells divide through mitosis ormeiosis. Mitosis is required for growth of the organism, while  meiosis produces sex cells. 
    PERFORMANCE: Drawing of Stages of Meiosis and Mitosis, Summary of Stages of Mitosis and Meiosis Students will diagram, label, and summarize stages of meiosis and mitosis.
    Traits and FatesLE 4, 9
  • History of DNA
  • Genetics and Heredity
  • Anthropological & Biological Sciences See Biology Encyclopedias
  • BH4 CONTENT:DNA/Genetics/Chromosomes: Each  chromosome is made of DNA. The part of the DNA that codes for a protein is called the DNA. 
    PERFORMANCE:  DNA/Genetics: Students explain that each chromosome is  made of DNA, and that DNA  supplies the genetic material that determines which proteins are synthesized.
    Traits and FatesLE 4,10
     
  • History of DNA
  • Genetics and Heredity
  • Anthropological & Biological Sciences  See Biology Encyclopedias
  • BH5 CONTENT: DNA/Genetics/Phenotypes and Genothpes The inheritance of genes from two parents allows the inheritance of sex linked, dominant or recessive traits.Some traits are the  result of the interaction of several genes. 
    PERFORMANCE:  DNA/Genetics Demonstrate principles of phenotype and genotype using Punnett square and human pedigrees.
    Matter of Life LE 9
  • History of DNA
  • Genetics and Heredity
  • Anthropological & Biological Sciences  See Biology Encyclopedias
  • BH6 CONTENT: DNA/Genetics/Mutations and Natural Selection DNA change might result in an altered gene that can be passed on  to offspring Genetic variation is preserved or eliminated  from  a population through natural selection. 
    PERFORMANCE: DNA/Genetics
    Describe and represent that changes (mutations) can occur in DNA due to natural or environmental conditions and give examples. Explain how natural selecton controls the effect of these mutations on an offspring's success in an environment.
    What on Earth?
     
  • History of DNA
  • Genetics and Heredity

  •  
    BH7 CONTENT: DNA/Genetics/DNA Sequences The millions of different species of plants, animals, and microorganisms that live on earth today are related by descent from a common ancestor. 
    PERFORMANCE: DNA/GeneticsGenetics: Examine DNA sequences to relate various organisms to each other and a common ancestor.
    What on Earth?
     
  • History of DNA
  • Genetics and Heredity

  •  
    BH8 CONTENT:DNA/Genetics/Population Growth The availability of matter and energy and the availability of the ecosystem to recycle materials, limit the distribution and abundane of organisms and populations in ecosystems 
    PERFORMANCE: DNA/Genetics Examine DNA sequences to relate various organisms to each other and a common ancestor.
    What on Earth?
     
  • History of DNA
  • Genetics and Heredity
  • Biomes, Ecosystems
  • Biosphere, Ecology
  • BH9 CONTENT: Cooperation and Competion in Ecosystems   Organism may cooperate or compete in ecosystems.Explain, understand or describe: ecology and evolution, major biomes, enviromnemtal  requiremnts for life, effect of environmental changes, etc. 
    PERFORMANCE: DNA/Genetics Examine DNA sequences to relate various organisms to each other and a common ancestor.
