ESE/ 504/ ESOL : Extra time and small group will be available for assignments. Scaffolding of the material and reading content based questions will be used. Copies of the power point will be made available for note-taking purposes. Extra time will be given to those students needing.requiring it for assignments/quizzes/tests.
|Unit of Instruction||Human Body Systems|
SC.6.L.14.5 (DOS Level 3) Identify and investigate the general functions of the major systems of the human body (digestive, respiratory, circulatory, reproductive, excretory, immune, nervous, and musculoskeletal) and describe ways these systems interact with each other to maintain homeostasis.
SC.6.L.14.6 (DOS Level 2) Compare and contrast types of infectious agents that may infect the human body, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
Students will: • describe the general functions of the major systems of the human body • describe ways that the major systems of the human body interact to maintain homeostasis, such as: maintain constant temperature – i.e. sweating while running response to stimuli – i.e. pull back after touching a hot surface
Students will: • compare and contrast different types of infectious agents that may affect the human body, including:
virus – i.e. cold
bacteria – i.e. strep throat
compare and contrast treatments for viruses versus bacterial infection
Students will read about bacteria and viruses and differentiate between the two types of pathogens
Students will watch videos and respond to a poll about viruses and bacteria on Edmodo.
Students will participate in a 2 week lab in which they will investigate the effect of mold (fungi) on bread.
