Unit 1 Standards, Objectives, and Tasks
GA Performance Standards
SCSh3. Students will identify and investigate problems
scientifically.
e. Develop reasonable conclusions based on data
collected.
SCSh8. Students will understand important features of the
process of scientific inquiry. Students will apply the following
to inquiry learning practices:
a. Scientific investigators control the conditions of their
experiments in order to produce valuable data.
SB1. Students will analyze the nature of the relationships
between structures and functions in living cells.
b. Explain how enzymes function as catalysts.
c. Identify the function of the four major
macromolecules (i.e., carbohydrates, proteins, lipids,
nucleic acids).
d. Explain the impact of water on life processes (i.e.,
osmosis, diffusion).
Tasks

3.
Create a product that demonstrates your understanding
of the characteristics that all living things have.
Create a product that compares carbohydrates, lipids,
proteins, and nucleic acid as it relates to their
monomers, functions, and examples.
Create a product that demonstrates your understanding
of the effect enzymes have on chemical reactions in the
body. Be sure to include a diagram that illustrates the
lock & key mechanism of enzymes.
