Learning Target

 

 

Students will review the adaptations of the alimentary canal that enable the digestion of food and absorption of nutrients.

 

 

Students will compare and contrast the general structures of plant and animal cells.

 

 

Students will identify the reactants, products, and basic functions of photosynthesis.

 

 

Success Criteria

 

Students will be successful today when they can:

• Define a balanced diet

• Identify the specialized parts of the alimentary canal

• Explain the roles of bile and various digestive enzymes

• Describe the significance of villi in the small intestine

 

 

Students will be successful today when they can:

• Explain how the structure of an organelle is directly related to its function in the cell

• Explain how the internal structure of a leaf is adapted for photosynthesis

 

 

 

Students will be successful today when they can:

• State the word and balanced equation for photosynthesis

• Explain that chlorophyll transfers light energy into chemical energy in molecules for the synthesis of carbohydrates

• Investigate and describe the effects of varying light intensity, CO2 concentration, and temperature on the rate photosynthesis
