Topic Two Starting with 1.1

So where do we begin the journey of learning about life?

If we looked at all living things we could organize our observations

The size of the living thing or how that living thing relates to non living things.

1.1 Starts with the frontier of living and non living things.



Please note the levels of organization below.

Please put each on a cue card and give your own definition and an example.

Where do we start to consider the interactions between living and non living things?



Levels of organization

When we look at small things we go from:

·      Energy

·      Atoms and molecules

·      Biomolecules

·      Cells

·      Tissues

·      Organs

·      Systems


When we look at larger mixed living and non living we go from

·      Species

·      Population

·      Community

·      Ecosystem

·      Biomes


And now an youtube from team batman



Topic Three So we are about to look at living and non living things in the classroom!


The question is..”How can we take observations and convert them into ideas and or theories?”.


Hear are some some suggestions






Take home msg “Life is stranger than biology textbooks.”
