Purpose of Strategy/Approach

Rationale of Lesson

 

Understanding of this topic is fundamental to understanding the makeup of living organisms and ultimately how the human body works. Cell structures and functions enable cells to function independently or as part of multicellular organisms. The interdependence of cell structures within a cell mirror the interdependence of organs to the well-being of the human body.
