Assignment 1B: Extended 5-Day Learning Map Template

Summary of Unit: This unit will cover the concept structures and processes involving understanding what a cell is, how to
investigate whether something is or is not a cell, and what the different is between living/non-living and dead/alive. Students have
had an introduction to the basics of microscope operation and laboratory safety. The students have also learned how to make an
observation, and use that observation to come up with a conclusion based on the observations they have made. Students should
understand that the lab at the end of the unit is optional, and if rules are not followed at any time, the opportunity to do a lab can be
taken away and substituted with other activities. Students should be able to identify what a cell looks like using a microscope.
Students should also be able to have an educated discussion to answer the essential question.
