Unit of InstructionCells
Standard(s) Taught

SC.6.L.14.2: Investigate and explain the components of the scientific theory of cells (cell theory): all organisms are composed of cells (single-celled or multi-cellular), all cells come from pre-existing cells, and cells are the basic unit of life.

SC.6.L.14.3: Recognize and explore how cells of all organisms undergo similar processes to maintain homeostasis, including extracting energy from food, getting rid of waste, and reproducing.

SC.6.L.14.1: Describe and identify patterns in the hierarchical organization of organisms from atoms to molecules and cells to tissues to organs to organ systems to organisms.

SC.6.L.14.4: Compare and contrast the structure and function of major organelles of plant and animal cells, including cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, cytoplasm, chloroplasts, mitochondria, and vacuoles.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will be able to describe cell theory as: all organisms are composed of one or more cells, all cells come from pre-existing cells, cells are the basic unit of life, explain how cell theory is applied to all living organisms, and explain why cell theory is a theory.

Students will be able to describe homeostasis as a constant internal condition within cells and organisms and explore how cells of all organisms undergo similar processes to maintain homeostasis, including: getting energy, removing waste, and reproducing.

Students will be able to describe and identify patterns in the hierarchical organization of organisms from atoms to molecules and cells to tissues to organs to organ systems to organisms.

Students will be able to compare and contrast the structure and function of major organelles found in plant and animal cells including, cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, cytoplasm, chloroplast, mitochondria, and vacules, use modesl of plant and animal cells to analyze the similarities and differences in the structures found in each cell, and evaluate the benefits and limitations of different types of cellular models.
