Our Life Science SET combines 3 titles in one bundle:
Cells: The Building Blocks of Life
Nutrition: Food & Healthy Eating
The Human Body
About Cells: The Building Blocks of Life:
CELL-ebrate as your students study the topic of cells in an exciting yet integrated fashion. We study the differences between one-celled and multi-celled organisms. Characteristics and functions of cells are studied, as well as an investigation of tissues, organs, organ systems, and diffusion and osmosis. Student assignments include an amoeba-labelling exercise, cell reproduction, plant and animal cells, and a study of the bizarre nature of cancer cells. The use of the microscope is an important part of this unit, and information on the proper use of this instrument is provided.
About Nutrition: Food & Healthy Eating:
Our unit on nutrition will give students an understanding of how nutrition is an important part of our daily lives. "We Are What We Eat" will be the major theme throughout this unit. The lessons will delve into the basic food groups, the nutritional value of the foods we eat, how our bodies digest and use food, the importance of water and fiber in our diet, food labels, food preparation, food allergies, and food safety. Within each lesson there are lesson plans, notes, questions, experiments, worksheets, and other fun activities to reinforce this nutrition unit.
About The Human Body:
Students study the major systems of the body: Skeletal, Muscular, Respiratory, Circulatory, Digestive and Nervous systems, in this highly motivating unit. The first part, "Core Lessons", covers the body systems with student notes providing a solid foundation of information. Related activities that utilize the visual arts, creative writing, physical activity and mathematics help to solidify the concepts taught in this lesson. Optional activities give teachers flexibility as the unit progresses. This mountain of innovative, time-saving teacher resources is sure to make life easier.
This Life Science Set provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, activities, crossword, word search and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
