SCIENCE UNIT PLAN

NAME: Darrell, Andara, Mahindra, Neerja, Harry.


CLASS: Form 2 Biology / Integrated Science
TOPIC: The Circulatory System of Humans
TIME FRAME: 3 weeks

National Goals

Knowledge of the basic principles of Science as it impacts


on daily life.
Understanding of the principles of physical growth, the
acquisition of healthy habits of eating and exercise.

Big Ideas

The human body requires a means of distributing materials in


order to survive and function efficiently

Formal Science Knowledge, Background and Experiences

Students should know / be able to:

Knowledge of the movement of molecules in and out of


cells (diffusion / osmosis).

Identify with the terms blood and heart.

Know the general location of the heart.

Aims

Students will be able to appreciate that the circulatory system is


critical for the effective functioning of the human body.

Students will be able to appreciate the role of the blood as the


transportation system that links all the body systems.

Students will be able to appreciate the role exercise and diet plays
in maintaining a healthy circulatory system

Possible Alternatives / Everyday Ideas

Blood is circulated in one cycle.

The lungs are part of the respiratory system but not the
circulatory system.

Misconceptions

Students perceive the heart to be shaped as the heart symbol which


represents love.

Students believe that the quantity of blood in the heart is finite in


that blood is not continuously made
