Kingdom Animalia Chapters


Aprovechando que estamos estudiando la nutrición animal, os dejo un enlace con excelente información en lengua inglesa sobre el Reino Animal para ampliar tus conocimientos:

Syllabus of “The nutrition function”

(Image taken from Wikipedia)


1. To understand that living beings need to obtain energy to apply it in the carrying out of their vital functions.

2. To value the importance of nutrition as the function responsible for obtaining the matter and energy required for staying alive.

3. To classify living beings in accordance with their form of nutrition (autotrophous beings and heterotrophous beings).

4. To differentiate between the two types of cell nutrition.

5. To understand how cells obtain matter and energy.

6. To understand the basic principles of how nutrition is carried out at a cellular level, distinguishing between vegetable and animal cells and identifying some of the organelles related to this function.

7. To recognise the importance of photosynthesis.

8. To learn about cellular respiration and nutrition.

9. To understand how plants feed, the role of sunlight in the process, the differences between feeding and respiration, the day-night variations and the importance of this kind of feeding in the ecosystem.

10. To describe the most important characteristics of the digestive, respiratory, circulatory and excretory apparatus and to recognise some of their organs.

11. To describe the process of nutrition, this being the intake, processing and expulsion of substances, including the functions of the four related apparatus: digestive, respiratory, circulatory and excretory.

12. To interpret anatomical diagrams and process diagrams.

13. To develop skills in interpreting and organising the information available in different formats.

14. To apply the knowledge acquired on energy to the student’s own diet, valuing the necessity of eating each one of the foods necessary for carrying out his or her activities.

15. To learn to evaluate our diet and introduce the necessary modifications to make it healthier.
