                                      Biology
                           November 28 – December 16, 2011

Focus:. Students will continue their exploration of cells. They will start by studying the
cell theory and all of the discoveries leading to it. They will then focus on the structure
and function of cells, plant, animal and prokaryotic cells. Students will look at cell
transport while they complete the project. They will be completing a project as the
assessment for unit 2.
Standards: See Unit 2 Outline and Unit 3
               And ELL III Intermediate


Monday 11/28: Lab: Plant vs. Animal Cells
     Need: lab handout and materials
     Tasks: Students will answer the science starter and then share and discuss with
     the class; “Differentiate between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells; also between
     plant and animal cells.” Students will have the opportunity to prepare slides and
     compare real plant and animal cells under the microscope. They will draw and
     identify what they see. Students will strengthen their knowledge of the cellular
     organelles by completing the cell city analogy that compares each organelle to a
     city part as homework.
     Homework: cell city analogy, project.
     Due: Lab: Plant vs. Animal Cells


Tuesday 11/29: Review: cell theory and cell structure
      Need: textbooks, review questions
      Tasks: Students will answer the science starter and then share and discuss with
      the class; “Explain the role of the golgi body, rough er and ribosomes.” Students
      will complete a review that includes handwritten questions and a vocabulary
      game.
      Homework: complete review, project.
      Due: none


Wednesday 11/30: Quiz: Cell Theory and Structure, Vocabulary for cell transport.
     Need: quiz, vocabulary terms
     Tasks: Students will answer the science starter and then share and discuss with
     the class; “Explain the role of the nucleus, nucleolus, cell membrane, lysosome
     and cell wall.” Students will take a short quiz over unit 3 concepts. Students will
     then define unit 3 (cell transport) vocabulary using words, pictures and an
     antonym or synonym.
     Homework: finish vocabulary, project
     Due: review and quiz
Thursday 12/1 and Friday 12/2: Cell Movement and Transport, Galileo Test 2
      Need: textbooks, questions
      Tasks: Students will answer the science starter and then share and discuss with
      the class; “Describe the structure and function of the cell membrane” Students
      will use textbooks or the internet to answer questions about cell transport after
      completing some internet based tutorials and animations over the different types
      of cell transport. Friday, first thing, students will complete the second Galileo
      test.
      Homework: be sure the work will be done to turn in in-class Friday, project.
      Due: Thursday vocabulary for unit 3, Friday cell transport assignments.
      ***Note: Substitute Friday***


Monday 12/5: Lecture: cell movement and transport
     Need: powerpoint
     Tasks: Students will answer the science starter and then share and discuss with
     the class; “What do cells need to move inside? Outside?” Students will take
     notes from a teacher led powerpoint with questions throughout to clarify what
     they have been discovering about cell membrane structure and cell transport.
     Homework: project
     Due: none


Tuesday 12/6: Mini Golf Course Project
      Need: rubric for grading, self-assessment sheet
      Tasks: Students will answer the science starter and then share and discuss with
      the class; “Compare and contrast endocytosis and exocytosis; also diffusion and
      osmosis.” Students will get class time to finish their projects which are due at the
      end of the day.
      Homework: self-assessment of project
      Due: Mini Golf Project


Wednesday 12/7: Mini Golf Course Project Presentations
     Need: rubric for grading, semester final study guide
     Tasks: Students will answer the science starter and then share and discuss with
     the class; “Describe pinocytosis and phagocytosis. Explain the difference
     between chromatin and chromosomes.” Students will participate in a modified
     stay and stray for presentations of their mini golf courses.
     Homework: Semester Final study guide
     Due: project self-assessment, mini golf project
Thursday 12/8 – Tuesday 12/13: Semester Review
      Need: semester final project directions
      Tasks: Students will answer the science starter and then share and discuss with
      the class; Th -“What are the steps in the scientific process? Name the parts of an
      experiment.” F –“What can science not study? What is the goal of science?” M
      – “What are the characteristics of life? Explain each.” T –“What is DNA made
      of? Name the four types of organic molecules, give an example of each and what
      the monomer is called that each is made of.”. Students will review the material
      covered this semester through the completion of a final project as well as a
      semester final study guide.
      Homework: Semester Final study guide
      Due: Tuesday Semester final project and science starters


Thursday 12/15: Final Exam
      Need: final exam
      Tasks: Students will show what they know from first semester on their final exam.
      They will also have demonstrated much of their knowledge on their final project.
