Number of Students: 36
Objectives: While developing a basic understanding of circulation pathways between the heart, lungs, arteries and veins, students use a model based on evidence to illustrate the relationships between systems and how the oxygen molecule moves and operates within it.
Essential Question: Identify the role of a red blood cell and the role it plays in respiration as a single cell moves through the many components of the circulatory system.
Guiding Questions: How do the heart and lungs work together to supply oxygen rich blood to the rest of our body?
Red Blood Cell
HS-LS1-7: Use a model to illustrate that cellular respiration is a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and the bonds in new compounds are formed resulting in a net transfer of energy.
Students communicate complex ideas clearly and effectively by creating or using a variety of digital objects such as visualizations, models or simulations.
