What do you want to learn in Science this semester?

How do you want to learn all of this?


How do you want to learn what you just recorded?... at AnswerGarden.ch.



Knowledge outcomes By the end of this unit, students should be able to:
1. Explain the relationship between cells, tissues, organs and systems.
A cell is a single unit os organisms. When many cells form together, tissues are formed. When tissues come together, organs are formed. Then when organs work with each other a system is formed.
2. State, with examples that organs are a group of tissues that coordinate to do a specific job.
3. Identify a variety of organ systems in animals and recall that they are made up of different organs with a special purpose working together.
Write a summary of the above 2 outcomes on your own wiki.
Make a terminology list in your wiki using the words that you learned from the 2 Quia activities.
The Body Systems Quia Activity AND
Anatomy: Systems of the Human Body (Make sure you log in with your user name and password)


4. Recall the word equation for respiration.
Make a podcast using http://audioboo.fm/ to explain cellular respiration to Yr 7 girls after watching the the video: Cellular Respiration on your wiki.

5. Recall function of each of the major body systems (circulatory, excretory, skeletal, respiratory).
When your table is complete, use your snipping tool and insert a jpg of your table in your wiki.
Make a Blabber like the example below that explains the function of each of the major body systems. Then embed the blabber in your wiki


6. Label a diagram of the respiratory system (trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli).
7. Explain how air enters and exists the lungs.
8. Describe the process that occurs inside an alveolus.
Insert a labelled diagram of the respiratory system in your wiki
In pairs decide whether you want to make a video for Outcome No:7 or No:8. When your video is ready, swap with your partner so both of you have a media item for both outcomes. To make the video, use Windows MovieMaker or Jaycut or Empressoror Jing or Vuvox (Use the collage option)
Homework:
Take this quiz and complete both Quia activities in OneNote on the Respiratory System

Respiratory System Crossword
9. State the function of each of the following components of the circulatory system: arteries, veins, capillaries, heart., blood.
10. Describe the function of the main components of blood (plasma, red and white blood cells and platelets).
In pairs decide whether you want to make a video for No9 or No10. When your video is ready, swap with your partner so both of you have a video for No9 AND No10
Make a quiz using http://quizlet.com/ with all the terminology learned here


Circulatory System Crossword



11. Give examples of life saving technology that have arisen as a result of improved understanding of the circulatory system (artificial heart valves ECG and artificial blood).
In groups of 3 decide which life saving technology you want to make a video for. When your video is ready, swap with your group members so all of you have 3 short videos for 3 technologies

12. Outline the function of the following nutrients in keeping the body healthy: carbohydrates, proteins, fats and oils.
13. Label a diagram of the digestive system.
14. Outline the function of the organs of the digestive system.
Animation of the Digestive System
Engage with the interactive of the Digestive system at: The Virtual Body
Digestive System Crossword
Insert the Food groups-Source and Function table in your wiki
Use Glogster to make a poster of the digestive system. Then insert it in your wiki
Insert a Structure-Function table for the parts of the digestive system in your wiki

15. Recall the 3 main functions of the skeletal system (support, protection of internal organs and providing anchor points for muscles. Note: students are not expected to be able to name the bones of the human body – this is covered in PDHPE



Make a podcast about the functions of the skeletal system using Audacity. The video below shows you how to record yourself using Audacity.
Chicken Wing Dissection
Complete this Quia Cloze passage


16. Describe the function of the excretory system.
17. Label the urinary system.
18. Recall the function of the following parts of the urinary system: kidney, bladder, ureters, urethra.



19. Outline the contributions made by one of the following Australian to the field of medicine: Victor Chang, Fiona Wood, Barry Marshall.
Choose any of the given medical researchers. Make a short video or a slide show using http://www.slide.com/ outlining their contribution to the field of medicine.

20. Describe some careers in the area of health Science.
After you have written your structured paragraphs, make a podcast to tell the class why you would like or not like to pursue a career in health Science.

Skills outcomes By the end of this unit, students should be able to:
  1. Interpret the results of experiments carried out by Boyle, Lavoisier and Priestly to investigate the process of respiration.
  2. Carry out an experiment to measure the amount of energy in a sample of food and outline sources of error.
  3. Extract information from flow diagrams, texts and audio/visual resources.
  4. Organise data using a variety of methods.
Spelling words:
1. cell
5. organ
9. oxygen
13. tissue
17. excretion
2. oesophagus
6. organism
10. stomach
14. System
18. skeleton
3. alveolus
7. carbon dioxide
11. intestine
15. digestion
19. respiration
4. enzyme
8. trachea
12. mitochondria
16. circulatory
20. protein
Assessment:
* Semester 1 examination * Mandatory experiences
Extension Work:
  • Design an on-line activity (eg: Quia activity) to help other students learn the names or function of organs of a particular body system.
  • Record a short video aimed at Year 8 students that explains how one of the body systems listed in this programme functions.
  • Research theories that have been put forward to explain why there has been an increase in the occurrence of asthma over the last century.
  • Research a disease or disorder that affects one of the body systems covered in this programme. Outline the cause and symptoms of the disease as well as possible treatments or control measures.
