AP.LO: LEVELS OF ORGANIZATION

  • AP.LO.1: Hierarchy of Organization
  • AP.LO.2: Anatomical Terminology & Body Regions
  • AP.LO.3: Types of Tissues
  • AP.LO.4: Homeostasis

 

Understandings:

  • The human body is comprised of 4 types of tissues: epithelial, connective, muscle, and nervous.
  •  Each type of tissue is composed of cells whose structure enables them to carry out their functions.
  • Tissues work together to make up organs and their functions, which work together in systems to control the body.

Learning Targets**

  • List, describe, and explain the difference among 4 types of tissues.
  • Explain how the function of each type of tissues is determined by its structure.
  • Locate each of the 4 types of tissue in the human body.
  • Summarize the eleven major body systems, functions, organs, and organ functions

Activities*

Differentiation

Assessments

  • Create labeled illustrations or models of the four types of human tissues.
  • IC1 Use microscopes or virtual images to examine various tissues. Compare a range of epithelial (e.g., squamous, columnar, cuboidal), connective (e.g., cartilage, bone, blood), muscular (e.g., skeletal, cardiac, smooth) and nervous tissues. Interpret how the function of each tissue type relates to its structure.
  • DT1 Simulate tissue engineering using a variety of materials (e.g., gelatin, agar, yeast). Critique the characteristics of each tissue simulation to rate its possible use in tissue grafting.

 

  • Identify each tissue type from images
  •  Sketch diagrams of RBCs in each solution and explain each diagram.
  •  

Visions into Practice: Classroom Examples

Designing technological/engineering solutions using science concepts

Demonstrating science knowledge

Interpreting and communicating science concepts

Recalling accurate science

  • Simulate tissue engineering using a variety of materials (e.g., gelatin, agar, yeast). Critique the characteristics of each tissue simulation to rate its possible use in tissue grafting.
