ANIMAL SYSTEMS PROJECT: 2018.
This project is optional in 2018. Due date is the Monday after Thanksgiving break (11/26). Only 1 day will be allowed for presentations.
3rd Block- Only 10 of 21 students are doing the project (3 groups). Here are the requirements for 3rd Block.
4th block- All but 2 students are doing the project, so groups will have to be sure to stay within the time limit and transitions between presentations will have to be quick. Here are the requirements for 4th Block.
Peer evaluation forms: MUST be turned in AS SOON as you walk into class. You must do one for every group member (including yourself). Forms will remain confidential.
Grading Rubric for each person in the group.
Here's the link to get Microsoft 365 for FREE from the county. Put it on a 'home' device. You can use 'One Drive' to share your project progression (PPt, etc.) with me. If, instead, you are using Google Drive, be sure to share that folder with me, too.
I will monitor collaboration between group members over the break.

5. Control of Blood Sugar Levels
6. WS- Regulation & Homeostasis
7. BioFlix- How Neurons Work
8. Complete this sheet on neurons.
9. PhET simulation. Open this for link and WS.
10. BioFlix- Synapses
11. Mouse Party- the url on the sheet has changed. Use this link.
12. HHMI Immune System WS. Here is the link for the 'Click and Learn' Interactive
13. MicroFlix- Immune System WS . Here's the link to the site.
14. HHMI- electrical activity neurons click and learn. Complete this sheet as you proceed through the activity.
15. Case Study- My Brother's Keeper (Evolutionary Biology and Animal Behavior)
1- Isopod Lab (AP Lab: Animal Behavior)
3- Blood Pressure Lab
1. Bozeman- Circulatory System
2. Bozeman- Endocrine System
3. Bozeman- Nervous System
4. Nerve Impulses- Good 3-D overview video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHRC8SlLcH0
5. Action Potential- NEW 2017. A little more detailed, but very clear
6. Saltatory Propagation/ Conduction- shown in class. No WS.
7. Neurotransmitters- Shown in class. No WS.
8. Bozeman- Link to Video (#40). Here is the Information Exchange WS to complete
9. Bozeman- Link to Video. Here is the Animal Behavior WS to complete
10. Bozeman: Animal Behavior AP Bio Lab WS
11. Watch this animated overview of Immune System before tackling all of the specifics (about 3 minutes)
11. Cytotoxic T cells
12. Watch these Immune System lectures/tutorials and take notes. This series (professor at OU) is really good. This material is difficult, but this is presented very clearly.

REVIEW GUIDES FOR ANIMAL SYSTEMS TEST
1. REVIEW GUIDE #1: Unit 8 Study Guide- 2017
2. REVIEW GUIDE- Part 2: Supplemental (Additional) Review for Animal Systems Test
Need to see the information presented in a different way? Try these Recommended Prezis:
Mr. David Knuffke's Prezis on Body Systems (well worth your time.....highly recommended....these presentations 'put it all together'):
1- Organism Organization
7- Development [know from book: Fig 47.6, 47.8, 47.10. Terms: blastula, cleavage, gastrulation, blastopore, ectoderm, mesoderm, endoderm, organogenesis, amnion (fig 47.15), blastocyst, trophoblast]
8- Responses- Very important to watch this. Shows all of the 'connections', which is what the Exam will 'test'......and what I want you to 'get'.
9-**Thermoregulation/ Osmoregulation- will post after presentations
LOOK OVER THESE BEFORE YOU TAKE THE TEST (as well as before the AP Exam in May):
1- Homeostasis (short PPt)- includes essentials YOU MUST KNOW for systems that were primarily only covered in group presentations (ex- gas exchange, osmoregulation in nephron of kidney)
2- Response (Prezi)- Shows all of the 'connections', which is what the Exam will 'test'......and what I want you to 'get'. Be sure to check out 'Quorum Sensing'!
These are also HIGHLY recommended (especially before the AP Exam), although they go into more depth than we had the time to do):
Additional 'helpful' info for Test review (came from other sources):
1- AP Bio Review of Body Systems
2- Rapid Review (found online....pretty good)
3- Endocrine: Hormone list. (Good reference list)
Power Points & Prezis
Animals in a 'nutshell' #1- Good for making Classification chart
Animals #2- more detailed (if needed) for making chart
Organism Regulation (Homeostasis)
Ch 42 A (Circulatory-"minor" focus for test & AP Exam)
Ch 43 Pt 1 (file size exceeds Weebly's limits, so it's in 2 parts)
Ch 43 Pt 2
Prepping for the Body Systems Test:
Use these in conjunction with the 2 Review Guides (lower left column), PPts and Book
Intro to Animals- Ch 40
Review: Types of tissues; homeostasis and feedback control; endothermy vs ectothermy; circulatory adaptations (ex-countercurrent exchange); thermoregulation; metabolic rate (graphs p. 870); torpor
1- AP student's Review of Endocrine System on youtube (10 minutes). He submitted it for a Kahn Academy Contest. I think it's pretty good!
2- If you've already watched Bozeman, watch Crash Course. Here's Hank's 'overall' video. These are the ones he made for 'Anatomy and Physiology' course (little more detail). Here's the link for #1. #2 should follow
3- Mnemonics, Songs (you can find plenty of these on youtube.com). Here's one:
Nervous System- Recommended videos and animations to prep for the Body Systems test:
1- 2 minute neuroscience (youtube). Watch in this order: the neuron, membrane potential, action potential, synaptic transmission. Former AP Exams have asked questions on photoreceptors in retina, smell (olfactory) and reflex arc in Nervous System, so I'm hoping y'all will take a look at those before the Exam since they are all 2 minutes or less.
2- 'Cartoon' of action potential. (Goes nice and slow)
3- YouTube- Garland Science
4- Crash Course Nervous System #1
5- Crash Course #2
6- Crash Course #3
7- You HAVE to watch this guy's video on action potential! He's a little loud, but very entertaining! Plus, I think you'll like his 'straightforward' approach to explaining it.
This video also includes the Respiratory system. Although I'm not testing much of the Resp system (any questions will directly coincide with the Circ System), it could be on the AP Exam.
Prepping for the Body Systems test:
1- Good animated video (~3 min) of the overall picture. Watch this before 'tackling' all of the specifics of the 3 lines of defense
2- If you've already viewed the Bozeman video on Immune System, watch the Crash Course videos on youtube.com. Watch this one first. The others should follow in the correct order.
3- Really good (and short) animation of the 3rd line of defense. It's relatively new and I just found it on 11/28/17
4- Fast overview of Immune System
5- Immune System Review PPt: A teacher on the College Board AP Bio Teachers community site shared this with the group. I've only had time to briefly look at it, but it looks pretty good. Wanted to share it with you before I forgot!
*Know these terms (Primarily from Chap 47)- 'Development':
Terms: blastula, cleavage, gastrulation, blastopore, ectoderm, mesoderm, endoderm, organogenesis, amnion (fig 47.15), blastocyst, trophoblast]
More good videos for review!
