Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

From Cells to Organisms


In this unit on cellular organization, cell theory and cell structure and function, 7th grade students will be able to describe the different levels of organization in plants and animals, specifically the idea that cells → tissues → organs → organ systems → organisms. Students will be able to use evidence to prove that living organisms are made of cells (one or many). The end goal is for students to be able to understand that all organism are made of cells, and that certain structures are responsible for specific functions in organisms; as well as the idea that organisms are made up of a system of multiple subsystems that work together to allow the organism to achieve and maintain homeostasis.
