Grade Level6
Week #Q4Wk4
Unit of InstructionHuman Body Systems
Standard(s) Taught

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


Classroom Activities

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.

Here is a copy of the Paper based packet:  Reproductive and Immune System Text Week 4

Monday:  Today we are starting the Reproductive System.

  1. Read the text called,” The Reproductive System”
  2.  Watch the video link from Khan Academy  https://www.khanacademy.org/science/high-school-biology/hs-human-body-systems/hs-the-reproductive-system/v/welcome-to-the-reproductive-system
  3.  Paper based will read the text and if able, watch the video from Khan Academy.  


  •  E-learners will  use yesterday’s text “The Reproductive System” to do the Quiz in Edmodo called The Reproductive Quiz. This will be averaged with Friday’s quiz and put into the Grade Book
  •   Paper based will use the same text and complete the assignment called,” Answer These” which follows the text. This will be averaged with Friday’s assignment and placed into Grade Book.

Wednesday:  Lab:  Evaporation and Sweaty Palms

  •   Today’s lab is called, “Evaporation” and “ Sweaty Palms”.  Please work on these 2 labs at home.
  •  E-learners:   There will be Zoom help sessions at 10, 2, and 4 on this day. 
  •  Please view the Lab and Lecture that I have pre-recorded on my You Tube channel. You will have to use the link found on the Wednesday morning post in order to view it. 
  • Watch Mrs. T’s Science Scene on the Reproductive System  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nToiuNIuFHo 


  •  Read the text called,  “The Immune System” pages 1 and 2. 
  • E-learning: Answering the short answer responses is optional, however, there is a quiz on the reading tomorrow.
