Lesson Plan (Direct Instruction)

Subject/Grade: 9th/10th

Strand 4 Life Science Concept PO 2 Explain how genotypic and phenotypic variation can result in
adaptations that influence an organisms success in an environment.
Objective (Explicit):
SWBATA how the blood flows through a four chambered heart compared to a two
chambered heart.
SWBATA the advantages of a four chambered heart compared to a two chambered heart
Sub-objectives, SWBAT (Sequenced from basic to complex):
SWBAT demonstrate the flow of blood through a two chambered and four chambered by
taking part in the walkthrough demonstration outside.

Evidence of Mastery (Measurable, include variety of methods of checking for understanding):

Quiz about the circulatory system will be given at the end of class.
Jeopardy game will show where students are still confused and teacher will address this
Key vocabulary:
Jeopardy game (computer and projector)
Plates resembling oxygen and carbon dioxide
Flow of blood through the heart
Blood Vessel

Instructional Input

Opening/Anticipatory Set: (state objectives, connect to previous learning, and make relevant to real life)
Name the different parts of a four-chambered heart circulatory system.
Teacher Will:
Student Will:
Guide students into naming each of the parts
Participate in the walkthrough activity
needed for the circulatory system.
Fill out the cheat sheet.
How does blood flow through the heart? Have
students fill out cheat sheet to know where to
2 students start as cells. (one at the head,
one at the feet)
Go over expectations for the activity.
2 students start as lungs
Take students outside to participate in the

walkthrough activity.
Facilitate walkthrough and ask questions at the
bottom of the page.

Arrive back from the outdoor walkthrough

The rest of the students are red blood cells.

Students moving one by one.
There job is to start at the right atrium and
proceed to the right ventricle. Then they get
pumped out to the lungs.
Lungs will give them oxygen (red plate) to
return to the heart and get pumped to the

Ask questions to summarize the activity.

Cells will take the oxygen (red plate) and pass
out the carbon dioxide (blue plate)
The blood cells take the blue plate back
through the heart and trade the lungs their
carbon dioxide in order to get an oxygen.
Repeat cycle.
Switch who is the lungs who is the cell.
The same process will take place with the fish
chalk diagram outside.
Red blood cells move from heart to gills to
cells to heart.

Guided Practice

Have students bring out a completed sheet that says where they are supposed to go. This will
be used if students are confused where to go.
Teacher Will:
Use the online jeopardy game.

Student Will:

Give students adequate amount of time to

discuss the questions and formulate answers.

Students will have 5 minutes to review notes

before jeopardy starts.

About 40-45 minutes.

Each table will work as team to answer each


Students if stumped can use notes. Students will have opportunity to ask questions, collaborate
with teammates, and exhibit what they know about the topics.

Independent Practice

Teacher Will:
Pass out quizzes and go over quiz/teachers
expectations about the answers to the

Student Will:
Take quiz.

About 30 minutes for the quiz.

If time permits go over answers once everyone
has completed the quiz.

Quiz will be given to all students. If they need extra time they can use time after school or during
Closure/Lesson Summary:
How are human circulatory systems different than an amphibians?
Which heart delivers the most amount of oxygen?
What about the structure allows it to deliver the most amount of oxygen?
How does having more oxygen lead to more complex animals?

Outdoor activity questions (questions will most likely be added and subtracted before
class time):
Discuss right vs. left side.
Where does blood need to go to get oxygen?
When travelling back to the heart which blood vessel are you in?
How do veins keep blood flowing towards the heart?
How is the fish circulatory system different than a human?
How does an amphibians and reptiles circulatory system look differently than the
Why do cells need oxygen?

What prevents blood from travelling backwards in the heart?

Which chambers are the most muscular?
Why is the left ventricle stronger than the right?
Where is the pacemaker?
What process is used to get the nutrients from the red blood cell to the body?
What is the only artery that carries deoxygenated blood?
What is the only vein that carries deoxygenated blood?
