Team Task 2

Team Task 2

Reproduction, Growth & Development:

  • Are there certain cells specialized for reproductions, or can any cell give rise to offspring (binary fission, seed & spore dispersion, gamete production)?
  • What are the stages of growth for the organism?


Cell & Body Structure:

  • What is the basic body plan?
  • What are the organism’s cells like?
  • What are the cell walls made of?
  • What are some specialized cells?
  • How do organisms in your kingdom move (kinesis, taxis & locomotion)?
  • How do they maintain homeostasis (biofeedback, fluid regulation and thermoregulation)?


Digestion, Transport & Excretion of Nutrients:

  • How do organisms in your Kingdom acquire, breakdown, and transport nutrients in their bodies.
  • How do organisms in your Kingdom remove toxic by-products and wastes from their bodies?


Sensing & Responding to the Environment:

All organisms respond to their environment!

  • How do organisms in your Kingdom sense the environment (for food, for danger, for mating partners, light, touch, chemicals, gravity, etc.)?
  • In what ways do they respond to what is sensed & defend themselves against threats such as pathogens & disease (behaviorally, structurally and physiologically)?


Your presentation should be ~ 5 minutes


You must create a one page handout (single sided) for the rest of the class – these will be used for the assessment


You will be given two class periods to work on this  – Presentation is due to your blog by 9:00 am the third class day – be ready to present this day!
