- For this unit, our anchoring driving question is: In this time of Corona virus, How does stress impact the teenage body and body systems?
- For this unit we have 3 learning goals:
- A. Use a model to illustrate the role of cellular division (mitosis) and differentiation in producing and maintaining complex organisms.
- B. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms.
- C. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis.
Target Learning Objective: Students will be able to describe how cells differentiate and why different types of cells have different rates of cell division.
