Structure and Function – How are organisms structured to ensure efficiency and survival?

5.2 - Perceiving and responding to information about the environment is critical to the survival of organisms.

¨       The sense organs perceive stimuli from the environment and send signals to the brain through the nervous system.


B 1.       Describe how light absorption and reflection allow one to see the shapes and colors of objects.

B 2.       Describe the structure and function of the human senses and the signals they perceive.

Light Unit: Students will engage in observations, labs and demonstrations to distinguish the properties of light and it’s uses.
