Unit 12 Part II Human Physiology: Digestive System, Nervous System and Sense Organs, Endocrine System and Reproductive System (Duration Bio 6 / HBio 5) Essential Questions Content Standards Skills Labs and Assessments HBio Additional Items How do all the bodies systems work together to maintain homeostasis? For each of the body's systems, list the input and response. Can I use this information when I go to the doctor's office? For each of the body's systems, list the structure and function of each of the participating organs. How do individual systems regulate themselves? What is the flow of reactions/interactions between the organs that make the systems work? What happens when one part of the system fails? Explain the flow of food through the body, where the body takes out the nutrients, and how the body eliminates waste. Describe the flow of a signal through the nervous system. Know the function of the endocrine system, major glands and hormones, and discuss potential disorders caused by an improperly functioning system. Identify the major structures of the male and female reproductive systems and their functions. 1. Trace the path of food through the digestive system, include where nutrients are removed and the process by which wastes are eliminated. 2. Draw and label the major organs of the of the body's systems. 3. Explain how the systems stay in balance using feedback loops. Formative: Various worksheets to assess the students progress. Use various websites, such as cellsalive.com, The Biology Project (University of Arizona); PBS Life's Greatest Miracle; Nature Scitable online library; Labs and activities to demonstrate and reinforce standards and skills: e.g., Modeling Human Digestion; Observing embryonic development from prepared slides; Modeling nerve function. 4. Given a scenario of failure of one or more of the components of the system, be able to discuss the probable result. Relate that to a known disease. 5. Describe how hormones affect the body's actions. 6. Summarize the hormones secreted by the pituitary gland and the action of each hormone. Nervous System Quiz 7. Trace the path of the sperm through the male body, to conception. Endocrine System Quiz Reproduction Quiz Discuss the major events during human gestation. Human Physiology Unit Test Part II 8. Summative (Quizzes for practice and check for understanding and a unit test): Digestive System Quiz Honors Biology (HBio) will be using the SAT II as a model to support the HBio Curriculum. HBio will be using experiments from the Vernier Advanced Biology laboratory manual. HBio students will be required provide a detailed account of the filtering of fluids in the kidneys.
