and Permanent tissues in plants).
Biological Diversity:
Diversity of plants and animals-basic issues in scientific naming, basis of classification. Hierarchy of
categories / groups, Major groups of plants (salient features) (Bacteria, Thallophyta, Bryophyta,

Pteridophyta, Gymnosperms and Angiosperms). Major groups of animals (salient features) (Non-
chordates upto phyla and chordates upto classes).

and manures; Protection from pests and diseases; Organic farming.

PRACTICALS (30 Periods)

Practicals should be conducted alongside the concepts tough in theory classes.

  1. Preparation of: Unit-I
    a) a true solution of common salt, sugar and alum
    b) a suspension of soil, chalk powder and fine sand in water
    c) a colloidal solution of starch in water and egg albumin/milk in water and distinguish
    between these on the basis of
     transparency
     filtration criterion
     stability
  2. Preparation of Unit-I
    a) A mixture
    b) A compound
    using iron filings and sulphur powder and distinguishing between these on the basis of:
    (i) appearance, i.e., homogeneity and heterogeneity
    (ii) behaviour towards a magnet
    (iii) behaviour towards carbon disulphide as a solvent
    (iv) effect of heat
  3. Separation of the components of a mixture of sand, common salt and ammonium chloride
    (or camphor). Unit-I
  4. Perform the following reactions and classify them as physical or chemical changes: Unit-I
    a) Iron with copper sulphate solution in water
    b) Burning of magnesium ribbon in air
    c) Zinc with dilute sulphuric acid
    d) Heating of copper sulphate crystals
    e) Sodium sulphate with barium chloride in the form of their solutions in water
  5. Preparation of stained temporary mounts of (a) onion peel, (b) human cheek cells & to record
    observations and draw their labeled diagrams. Unit-II
  6. Identification of Parenchyma, collenchyma and Sclerenchyma tissues in plants, striped,
    smooth and cardiac muscle fibers and nerve cells in animals, from prepared slides. Draw
    their labeled diagrams. Unit-II
  7. Determination of the melting point of ice and the boiling point of water. Unit-I
  8. Verification of the Laws of reflection of sound. Unit-III
  9. Determination of the density of solid (denser than water) by using a spring balance and a
    measuring cylinder. Unit-III
  10. Establishing the relation between the loss in weight of a solid when fully immersed in
    a) Tap water Unit-III
    b) Strongly salty water with the weight of water displaced by it by taking at least two
    different solids.
  11. Determination of the speed of a pulse propagated through a stretched string/slinky (helical
    spring). Unit-III
  12. Study of the characteristics of Spirogyra, Agaricus, Moss, Fern, Pinus (either with male or
    female cone) and an Angiospermic plant. Draw and give two identifying features of the
    groups they belong to. Unit-II
