1 Ms. Blalock, Ms. Hartsell and Mr. Luckman Homeostasis in PlantsMs. Blalock, Ms. Hartsell and Mr. Luckman
2 Do Now What are the necessary ingredients for photosynthesis to occur? What are the products of photosynthesis?
3 Today’s Aim and Objectives AIM: How do water and CO2 play a role in helping a plant maintain homeostasis?Objectives: Students will be able to…Identify guard cells and stomata in a diagramExplain how a plant maintains homeostasisUnderstand the role of stomata and guard cells in a plantUnderstand the role of water and CO2 in a plantMake connections between homeostasis and the process of photosynthesis
4 Today’s Agenda 1. Do Now 2. Activity 1: Reviewing Photosynthesis 3. Activity 2: Lab→ Homeostasis in Plants4. Closing→ Homeostasis: Plants vs. Humans5. Exit Ticket
5 Activity 1: Reviewing Photosynthesis Definition: The process by which light energy is converted into chemical energy.In other words, it is when plants take light energy and use it to make food in the form of sugar (glucose).
7 Activity 2: Lab → Homeostasis in Plants Directions: Read Page 1 of the lab on Homeostasis in Plants.Once you are finished, respond to the following question independently and silently:Why do plants need to maintain homeostasis?(Hint: How is the process of photosynthesis affected if homeostasis in a plant is not maintained?)
8 Think, Group, Share Respond to the following question: Independently As a groupAs a whole classHow do the different structures of a plant work together maintain homeostasis in a plant?
9 Step 1: Structures of a leaf Directions: Using the information in the reading, as a group take 2 minutes to label the cross section of a leaf.When your group is finished, check your answers with the key located in the back of the classroom.
13 Steps 4-6: Creating a model Directions: Each group will put together a model of the cross section of a leaf. Everyone in the group will work together to color the different pieces of the model.The following roles should be assigned:Materials: Person goes to get the materials for the labScissor Hands: This person cuts out the pieces of the modelManager: This person makes sure the model is correct before it is glued togetherGluer: This person glues the pieces together
14 Step 7 and 8: Simulating Photosynthesis Directions: Complete Steps 7 and 8 as a group. Keep the same roles as before.Check with the teacher before gluing
15 Check Point!Directions: Once you have finished Step 8, check in with the teacher before moving on to the Summary Questions.Once the teacher has signed off for your group, begin answering the Summary Questions INDEPENDENTLY and SILENTLY
16 Closing: Homeostasis in Plants vs. Humans AIM: How does water and CO2 play a role in a plant maintaining homeostasis?Making connections: How would you compare and contrast the regulation of homeostasis in plants and humans?
17 Exit Ticket You have 5 minutes to complete the Exit Ticket. If you talk during the Exit TicketFirst time, it is warningSecond time, you will receive a zero
