will be able to define DIFFUSION and
identify or give examples of diffusion.

2.Students
will be able to explain how and why diffusion takes place.

3.Students
will be able to define OSMOSIS and identify
or give examples of osmosis.

4.Students
will be able to explain how and why diffusion takes place.

5.Students
will be able to identify and define the terms ISOTONIC, HYPOTONIC, and HYPERTONIC, and explain how these types
of solutions effect osmosis.

6.Students
should be able to describe the differences in types of membranes as permeable, impermeable, and semi
permeable.

7.Students
should be able to define TRANSPIRATION
and explain why it is so important to plants and other living things.

8.Students
should know the answers to the 15 basic questions asked in the water web quest
(aka- sticky nature, universal solvent, water
cycle, ect.

9.Students
should be able to identify and explain each of the theory of water movement in
plants. Included will be

a. root pressureb. cohesionc. air pressure changes

d. adhesion (capillary action)

10.Students

you will be asked to determine the other variable (ex.-
given Density and mass, find the volume).

feedback system of the endocrine
system.

12.Students
will be able to explain what respiration
is, and how glucose and ATP work together in a cycle for the energy demands of
living things.

13.Students
should be able to explain the relationship between respiration, breathing, and
pulse rate.

14.Students
should be able to give a short description of the six body systems that were
part of the Body Systems project.

15.Students
should be able to describe the problems associated with the Critical balance of
plants and animals on the planet earth.
