THE BIG IDEA ALL LIVING THINGS SHARE COMMON TRAITS Activity 1: Lesson introduction
CONSIDER AND CONNECT
DIRECTIONS: After reading the lesson introduction below, complete the activity by answering the questions that follow.
Think about the last time you ate a bowl of cereal. Maybe it was this morning, or months but if you concentrate you will remember the experience. Close your eyes and get a mental picture of yourself eating and tasting the cereal. Describe in as much detail as possible what you remember about the last time you ate cereal. Include what type of cereal you ate as well as the dishes you used or the room in which you enjoyed your meal.
Most likely your response involved eating cereal in a bowl, and with a spoon.
1. How would your experience of eating cereal.
have been different if you would have used a plate instead of a bowl and a fork instead of a spoon?
2. Why do you think that we have different dishes and utensils to eat different foods?
In the same way that your kitchen uses different items, like pots, plates, or utensils, your body has different parts to perform different functions. The way a part looks often relates to what it does. For example I cannot bake a cake by putting it in the refrigerator because the refrigerator has parts that make it cold not hot! This idea that structure, or how something is made and looks, relates directly to its function, or the job that it does, is just one of the unifying themes of biology that you will learn about in this lesson. By understanding the basic principles of life and what it means to be “living” you will be able to relate complex concepts throughout all areas of biology. The unifying themes can help simplify these concepts keeping you focused and connected.
