Product Description
This unit guide will lead teams of students working in collaborative groups through their self-exploration of the structure and function and systematic relationships in plants. Each group will be assigned to a specific plant part and will be given tasks to complete in order to prepare to teach other students about the systems and structure and function relationships in their plant part.

NGSS Cross Cutting Concepts:
-Structure and Function
-Systems and Systems Models

NGSS Standards:
• Systems of specialized cells within organisms help them perform the essential functions of life. (HS-LS1-1)
• Multicellular organisms have a hierarchical structural organization, in which any one system is made up of numerous parts and is itself a component of the next level. (HS-LS1-2)
• Develop and use a model based on evidence to illustrate the relationships between systems or between components of a system. (HS-LS1-2)

NGSS Skills:
• Students describe the relationships between components, including: The functions of at least two major body systems in terms of contributions to overall function of an organism; Ways the functions of two different systems affect one another; and a system’s function and how that relates both to the system’s parts and to the overall function of the organism.
• Students develop a model in which they identify and describe the relevant parts (e.g., organ system, organs, and their component tissues) and processes (e.g., transport of fluids, motion) of body systems in multicellular organisms.
• Students use the model to illustrate how the interaction between systems provides specific functions in multicellular organisms.
• Students make a distinction between the accuracy of the model and actual body systems and functions it represents.
