“ ...the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the manbecame a living being.” Genesis 2:7 ~“ For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.” Psalm 119:3~“Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding tolearn your commands.” Psalm 119:73~“Know you not that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1Corinthians 3:16 ~“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body isformed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.” Ecclesiastes 11:5
Welcome to the Cells and Systems Unit Study. As you complete this unit youwill cover thelearning outcomes for Life Science for grade 8. Here are a few pointers to get you started:
Following the title for each lesson you will find:
A green box like this one to tell you what learning outcomes you are covering. A blue box like this one will guide you through a prayer to start the lesson. A red box like this one will guide you through the options for that lesson.
Read the instructions carefully because you are not required to do everythingoffered.
However, as you go please remember that the more you explore the more youwill learn. Experiments and projects are a requirement of the learning outcomes, and theyare also fun!! You may want to touch base with your support teacher to ensure youunderstand what is required for you to obtain the grade you want. It is unlikely thatwatching a BrainPop video and completing the quiz for each lesson will be sufficient todemonstrate a thorough understanding of the topic.
Passwords for BrainPop and Discovery Education can be obtained from your supportteacher. I would include them here, but they change every year. There are also answer keys for the activities at each of these sites.
