Sit with your partner and get out your completed 2.1.1. Organism Profile
View Organizer: SFM
During our last class, you worked in pairs to explore organisms that attach by suction or clamping. Today you will use this information to identify the Structure, Function, and Mechanism of your organism, which will enable you to fully understand the suction/clamping system, what the different parts are and how they work together. When time is called, you and your partner will share your findings with 2 different groups (with different organisms).
View Handout: 2.2.2. Organism SFM
Working with your partner, complete the SFM of the suction/clamping system of your organism.
Play Video: 5-minute Timer
You will have 5 minutes to share your SFM/Organism Profile with another group. When the timer goes off, that group will have 5 minutes to share their SFM/Organism Profile. While you are learning about the other group’s organism, think about the following:
- How are the organisms similar?
- How are they different?
Teacher Note: After ~10 minutes, have the groups rotate and share their organism with another group.
