Theme 1: Tissue

Plant Tissues

  1. Definition of tissue.
  2. Classification of plant tissues: Meristematic and permanent (simple and complex).
  3. Meristematic tissues: characteristics (any two), simple structure, location, function, examples.
  4. Simple permanent tissues: parenchyma, collenchyma, sclerenchyma (simple structure, location and functions of each), examples.
  5. Complex permanent tissues: xylem, phloem- function only. (Elements of xylem and phloem not to be mentioned).

Animal Tissues

  1. Epithelial tissue: simple location, and function (types of epithelial tissue not to be mentioned).
  2. Connective tissue location and functions of bone, cartilage, blood, ligament, tendon.
  3. Muscular tissue: location and one function of:
    – striated (voluntary or skeletal muscle),
    – unstriated (involuntary/ smooth muscle),
    – cardiac (specialized muscle).
  4. Nerve tissue: parts of neuron (cell body, Dendron, axon).

Theme 2: Kingdom Classification

  1. Meaning and concept of classification
  2. Need and advantages of Classification
  3. Characteristics of each kingdom with suitable examples:
    (i) Monera: bacteria – shape;
    (ii) Protista: Amoeba – basic structure;
    (iii)Fungi: basic structure of mould;
    (iv)Plantae: characteristics and examples (classification of plantae not to be discussed);
    (v) Animalia
    (b)Invertebrates: 9 major Phyla, Porifera, Cnidaria, Coelenterata, Platyhelminthes, nematoda, Annelida, Arthropoda, Mollusca, Echinodermata)

Theme 3: Plant Life


  1. Definition, basic process, factors affecting photosynthesis, significance of photosynthesis, setup.
  2. Photosynthesis process (demonstration).


  1. Basic process, word equation; respiration as a process which releases energy; respiration in plants: two types (aerobic and anaerobic: basic concept, word equations for both, examples).
  2. Respiration and photosynthesis in plants, difference in both processes.

Theme 4: Human Body

Excretory System

  1. Excretion: Definition.
  2. Organs and their excretory products (kidneys, sweat glands, lungs);
  3. Renal Excretory System – kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder, urethra (location and functions to be explained along with diagram).
