Abstract: [Extract] In this mini unit, students will observe different animal and plant cells under the microscope. They will investigate the structure and function of different animal cells and observe and describe the function of chloroplast in plant cells. Students will investigate zooxanthellae and their symbiotic relationship with coral and use this understanding to explain coral bleaching. Students will recognise the link between carbon footprint and coral bleaching and identify ways to manage carbon footprints from the individual to community level.
