5 Lafayette Parish School System Curriculum Map Biology I Unit 2 Biology as the science of Life Time Frame 3 weeks Aug 29, Sep 21, 2011 Unit Description--This unit introduces the concept of biology as the science of life. It engages students in exploring the importance of biogeochemical cycles in the environment, the significance of maintaining balance within these cycles, and the role living organisms play. The activities explored in this unit include the cycling of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Other cycles that are explored include water, nitrogen, and phosphorous. Activities in this unit also investigate trophic levels and energy flow within ecosystems. Student Understanding--Students should be able to describe the characteristics of living things and explain how living things interact with the nonliving aspects of their environment. They should be able to explain the dynamics of the process of maintaining a balance within ecosystems and the role chemical processes (photosynthesis and cellular respiration) play in this regard. Students are expected to have a general knowledge about various cycles (e.g., water, energy, and ATP) and how they function around a continuing effort to achieve and maintain equilibrium. Students are also expected to recognize food and energy hierarchy within an ecosystem. GLE # GLEs Evidence / Assessments of learning SI-1.

39 Lafayette Parish School System Curriculum Map Biology I Unit 6: Classifications and Patterns of Behavior Time Frame: 3 weeks January 4, 2012 to January 20, 2012 Unit Description--This unit involves students in identifying the characteristics used to define life, as we know it, on planet Earth and the systems used to organize these life forms into various groups (e.g., classification). It also focuses on the effects various stimuli can have on organism behavior. Both plants and animals will be included, with an emphasis on how responses relate to the survival of the species. Student Understandings--This unit centers on the characteristics and behavioral traits of all forms of life. With this information, students should identify similarities and differences in life forms and classify examples according to identifiable traits and place them in the proper taxonomic categories. Organisms (plants and animals) react to stimuli in different ways and in varying amounts. Students will be able to explain plant and animal responses to stimuli and relate the survival value of these responses.

This unit will examine the interaction of the various systems, how a balance (homeostasis) is maintained within the systems, and factors that affect the health and proper functioning of the systems (e.g., drugs, alcohol, disorders, and disease organisms). In addition, the student will explore areas related to maintaining good health through recognition of causes, symptoms, treatments, and prevention of major diseases. Mechanisms of disease transmission and the role of the human immune system will also be investigated. Student Understandings-- The human body is be understood as a living organism, and students should be provided information and experiences that will enable them to explain the structure and function of the body systems, major organs, and processes that maintain homeostasis and life. Students will be able to describe the connections between the system, diseases and conditions of that system, and the importance of health maintenance.
