Learning Target

 

 

Students will compare and contrast nervous and endocrine control.

 

 

Students will explain that homeostasis is the control of internal conditions within set limits.

 

Students will explain gravitropism and phototropism in plants.

 

Success Criteria

 

Students will be successful today when they can:

• Identify specific endocrine glands and their secreted hormones

• Discuss the role of adrenaline in the chemical control of metabolism

 

 

Students will be successful today when they can:

• Describe specific examples of homeostasis in the human body

• Explain the concept of control by negative feedback

 

 

Students will be successful today when they can:

• Graph the concentration of blood glucose levels under different endocrinological conditions

 

Students will be successful today when they can:

• Explain how plants respond to stimuli

• Describe examples of tropisms in plants

• Explain the role of the hormone auxin in plant growth
