Engineering Design Process (EDP)
Students follow all of the steps of the engineering design process. Students brainstorm and design various yeast bread recipes. They will create and test a product and then revise and refine it.
Students follow all of the steps of the engineering design process by creating a high quality of yeast bread. Students brainstorm and create various recipes to determine how a particular ingredient impacts the quality of yeast bread. Teams will test one variable and communicate their results to the class. Students will use the class results to create a high quality of yeast bread.
Unit Academic Standard
- This topic focuses on the basics of Modern Cell Theory. All organisms are composed of cells, which are the fundamental unit of life. Cells carry on the many processes that sustain life. All cells come from pre-existing cells.
- Cells are the fundamental unit of life.
- All cells come from pre-existing cells.
- Cells carry on specific functions that sustain life.
- Living systems at all levels of organization demonstrate the complementary nature of structure and function.

Lesson 2, Activity 1, 3, and 4
If it moves, it is alive.
If it seems to move by itself, it’s alive; if it’s moved by something else, it’s not alive.
If it makes light or a noise, it’s alive.
It’s not alive unless it’s “doing something.”
To be alive, something has to “breathe.”
Growth is not a prerequisite of life.
Objects like seeds, spores, eggs, and pupae are not alive, but they can give rise to living things.
Plants and fungi are not alive.
Plants and fungi have a different kind of life than animals.
Algae and mushrooms are plants.
All cells have one nucleus.
Fungi are harmful to plants.

How to Make This a Hierarchical Unit
- Photosynthesis and respiration are compared.
- More details about sexual and asexual reproduction will be studied.
- Details of cellular processes such as photosynthesis, chemosynthesis, cellular respiration,cell division and differentiation are studied. Cellular organelles studied are cytoskeleton, Golgi complex and endoplasmic reticulum.
- Details of cellular processes are studied. Molecules enter and leave the cell by the mechanisms of diffusion, osmosis and active transport.
