Structure relates to function. Organs and organ systems function together to provide homeostasis in organisms. The functioning of organs depends upon multiple organ systems.
Students will understand the relationship between structure and function of organs and organ systems.
- Describe the structure and function of organs.
- Diagram and label the structure of the primary components of representative organs in plants and animals (e.g., heart – muscle tissue, valves and chambers; lung – trachea, bronchial, alveoli; leaf – veins, stomata; stem – xylem, phloem, cambium; root – tip, elongation, hairs; skin – layers, sweat glands, oil glands, hair follicles; ovaries – ova, follicles, corpus luteum).
- Describe the function of various organs (e.g. heart, lungs, skin, leaf, stem, root, ovary).
- Relate the structure of organs to the function of organs.
- Compare the structure and function of organs in one organism to the structure and function of organs in another organism.
- Research and report on technological developments related to organs.
- Describe the relationship between structure and function of organ systems in plants and animals.
- Relate the function of an organ to the function of an organ system.
- Describe the structure and function of various organ systems (i.e., digestion, respiration, circulation, protection and support, nervous) and how these systems contribute to homeostasis of the organism.
- Examine the relationships of organ systems within an organism (e.g., respiration to circulation, leaves to roots) and describe the relationship of structure to function in the relationship.
- Relate the tissues that make up organs to the structure and function of the organ.
- Compare the structure and function of organ systems in one organism to the structure and function in another organism (e.g., chicken to sheep digestive system; fern to peach reproductive system).
