Biology Physiology: As a result of the coordinated structures and functions of organ systems, the internal environment of the human body remains relatively stable (homeostatic) despite changes in the outside environment. As a basis for understanding this concept:
9a. Students know how the complementary activity of major body systems provides cells with oxygen and nutrients and removes toxic waste products such as carbon dioxide.
9f. Students know the individual functions and sites of secretion of digestive enzymes (amylases, proteases, nucleases, lipases), stomach acid, and bile salts.
PE: The supply and demand for energy in the body is effected by the intake and utilization of substrates (food), which allow muscles to perform work. The demand for substrates is effected by the level of physical activity, and with this in mind, students should be able to: Physical Education (Fitness): 2.4 Assess levels of physical fitness and adjust physical activity to accommodate changes in age, growth, and development. 2.7 Develop and implement an appropriate personal physical fitness program for a family or community member.
Physical Education (Self-Responsibility): 3.3 Evaluate the psychological benefits derived from regular participation in physical activity.
Physical Education (Social Interaction): 3.6 Identify the effects of individual differences, such as age, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and culture, on preferences for and participation in physical activity.
Assessments: Students will demonstrate their knowledge of nutrition and physical activity for overall wellness through their production of materials (Poster and Pamphlets) and presentations (orally as they interact) for the SMUSD Health fair, which will include a video production (also uploaded to YouTube).
objectives: Read, listen to, and understand information about:
- food groups and foods on the Food Pyramid Guide. - activities to maintain good health. - ways to describe food.
