LSD10 Describe how cells and organisms acquire and release energy (photosynthesis, chemosynthesis, cellular respiration and fermentation).

LSD11 Explain that living organisms use matter and energy to synthesize a variety of organic molecules (e.g., proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids) and to drive life processes (e.g., growth, reacting to the environment, reproduction and movement).

Goal: This unit will be worth 125 points plus an Assessment Test. Each objective (worth 25 points each) must be achieved in order to take the assessment. As you reach your objective I will review your achievement level and allow you to move on to the next objective. Some of the activities listed can be used to meet more than one objective. I will determine if that objective has been met. (I need artifacts to prove that each objective has been met). No group work unless previously approved by Mrs. McGill.
