Learning Target

 

 

 

 

 

I will describe the characteristics of living organisms.

 

 

I will practice using various types of measuring devices used in the biology classroom laboratory.

 

 

I will describe the basis for traditional classification systems.

 

I will explain that classification systems aim to reflect evolutionary relationships.

 

 

Success Criteria

 

I will be successful today when I can:

?• Distinguish between living and nonliving things

?• Describe the features exhibited by living things and provide examples

 

I will be successful today when I can:

?• Recognize and properly use the correct equipment for measuring length, mass, and volume

?• Express quantitative measurements with the appropriate units

 

 

I will be successful today when I can:

?• Define and describe the binomial system of naming species

?• List and describe the features used to assign living organisms into different kingdoms and subsequent levels of taxa (subgroups)

?• Use and construct a dichotomous key
