PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Cells, Tissues, Organs and Systems

This unit covers the following terms as they relate to plants and animals:

Group 1 Group 2
cell cell membrane
tissue cell wall
organ nucleus
system mitochondria
skeletal system vacuoles
muscular system chloroplasts
digestive system cytoplasm
excretory system trachea
respiratory system bronchi
circulatory system lungs
nervous system esophagus
urinary system stomach
skin intestines
cartilage blood vessels
blood brain
veins heart
arteries spinal cord
capillaries leaves
sense organs stems
perspiration roots

The terms are broken down into two groups as noted above.

The unit includes matching cards with terms and definitions for each group.

Multiple Choice quizzes and Fill in the Blank quizzes are included for each grouping of terms for a total of 4 quizzes with answer keys.

The following labeling activities (and answer keys) are also in the unit:

Parts of a Typical Animal Cell
(cell membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus, vacuoles, mitochondria)
Parts of a Typical Plant Cell
(cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, vacuole, mitochondria, chloroplasts)
Systems & Organs in the Human Body
(muscular system, skeletal system, nervous system, brain,
spinal cord)
Systems & Organs in the Human Body
(respiratory system, circulatory system, digestive system,
esophagus, stomach, intestines, trachea, bronchi, lungs,
heart, blood vessels)

Texas Science TEKS covered:
6th grade
(12) Organisms and environments. The student knows all organisms are classified into Domains and Kingdoms. Organisms within these taxonomic groups share similar characteristics which allow them to interact with the living and nonliving parts of their ecosystem. The student is expected to:
(A) understand that all organisms are composed of one or more cells
(B) recognize that the presence of a nucleus determines whether a cell is prokaryotic or eukaryotic
(D) identify the basic characteristics of organisms, including prokaryotic or eukaryotic, unicellular or multicellular, autotrophic or heterotrophic, and mode of reproduction, that further classify them in the currently recognized Kingdoms
(F) diagram the levels of organization within an ecosystem, including organism, population, community, and ecosystem.

7th grade
(E) Organisms and environments.
(ii) Students learn that all organisms obtain energy, get rid of wastes, grow, and reproduce. During both sexual and asexual reproduction, traits are passed onto the next generation. These traits are contained in genetic material that is found on genes within a chromosome from the parent. Changes in traits sometimes occur in a population over many generations. One of the ways a change can occur is through the process of natural selection. Students extend their understanding of structures in living systems from a previous focus on external structures to an understanding of internal structures and functions within living things.
(iii) All living organisms are made up of smaller units called cells. All cells use energy, get rid of wastes, and contain genetic material. Students will compare plant and animal cells and understand the internal structures within them that allow them to obtain energy, get rid of wastes, grow, and reproduce in different ways. Cells can organize into tissues, tissues into organs, and organs into organ systems. Students will learn the major functions of human body systems such as the ability of the integumentary system to protect against infection, injury, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation; regulate body temperature; and remove waste.

(12) Organisms and environments. The student knows that living systems at all levels of organization demonstrate the complementary nature of structure and function. The student is expected to:
(A) investigate and explain how internal structures of organisms have adaptations that allow specific functions such as gills in fish, hollow bones in birds, or xylem in plants
(B) identify the main functions of the systems of the human organism, including the circulatory, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, digestive, excretory, reproductive, integumentary, nervous, and endocrine systems
(C) recognize levels of organization in plants and animals, including cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and organisms
(D) differentiate between structure and function in plant and animal cell organelles, including cell membrane, cell wall, nucleus, cytoplasm, mitochondrion, chloroplast, and vacuole
(E) compare the functions of a cell to the functions of organisms such as waste removal
(F) recognize that according to cell theory all organisms are composed of cells and cells carry on similar functions such as extracting energy from food to sustain life



Texas TEKS Health Education
Grade 4
(b) Knowledge and skills.
(2) Health information. The student recognizes the basic structures and functions of the human body and how they relate to personal health throughout the life span. The student is expected to:
(A) describe how health behaviors affect body systems; and
(B) describe the basic function of major body systems such as the circulatory and digestive systems.

Grade 5
(b) Knowledge and skills.
(2) Health information. The student recognizes the basic structures and functions of the human body and how they relate to personal health throughout the life span. The student is expected to:
(A) describe the structure, functions, and interdependence of major body systems.
