Today we practiced identifying variables with experimentation. We will practice tomorrow as well and then DO experimentation on Friday! Be sure to have your SAFETY CONTRACT signed and turned in by Friday! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can print THESE NOTES (or copy on page 18). Watch the video below too!!! We are trying to do good science this year!
Today we took our Show What You Know for tools and safety. We also discussed more with the scientific method and TOOK SOME NOTES. Tomorrow we will continue to explore variables and good scientific experimentation. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can take the SWYK during lunch, after school, or in HomeBase study hall on Thursday. Print those NOTES for page 18 in the notebook! Be sure to get safety contracts and syllabus surveys done!!!
You have an important SWYK tomorrow for lab equipment and safety! I WOULD REVIEW WITH THIS VIDEO LINK (it's funny). You may choose to challenge yourself with THIS POWERPOINT REVIEW. Set aside at least 10 minutes to review equipment and safety. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be ready for the SWYK tomorrow!!! Get SAFETY CONTRACTS signed and turned in!
Today we explored the safety rules of the lab. You have a SCIENCE SAFETY CONTRACT to share with your parents this weekend. Both of you need to sign the contract and bring it back to class Monday! Some parents still have the survey to complete (click THIS LINK and select "Syllabus"). We have a SWYK on Tuesday to Show What You Know about lab safety and equipment. Spend some study time this weekend. THIS MATCHING GAME is helpful. So are your notes!
Today we created a study guide to learn our lab equipment. Tomorrow we will discuss how to safely use said lab equipment! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can print THIS LIST OF EQUIPMENT and then take some time to look up what the items look like (you can also ask me for a picture page). All of you can WATCH THIS POWERPOINT TO REVIEW EQUIPMENT. Some of you still need to have your parents complete the syllabus survey... scroll past posts for the link!
Today we practiced observation and inference skills. We use these skills to move from step to step in scientific investigation. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to add OBSERVATION as well as INFERENCE to your glossary. I ask students to list the term, a phonetic spelling, the definition, and add an illustration and/or example. You are welcome to join me during HomeBase tomorrow and just copy what we added in class!
HEY... some of you have failed to get your parents to fill in the
LIFE SCIENCE SYLLABUS SURVEY! Get on it tonight!!!
Today we continued to explore the methods scientists use to get answers to questions. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can PRINT THE WHEEL for page 8 and THESE NOTES for page 9 of the notebook. Some prefer to have notes in their own handwriting but I'd print the wheel and then just copy the information for the other notes. Some still need to have your parents fill in the LIFE SCIENCE SYLLABUS SURVEY... hurry for a work ethic grade!
Today we explored some skills and tools of science. We also applied those skills to solve a puzzle. Scientific discoveries are like today's puzzle... sometimes easy to put the pieces together and sometimes much more challenging when new data is discovered. This week we will continue to explore science and engineering practices. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can be ready to do some science when you return. Only a few of you still need to finish the LIFE SCIENCE SYLLABUS SURVEY... get your folks to do it tonight!!!
Today we wrapped up notebook setup and set the seating clock. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY we will get your notebook setup when you return AND I have your clock for you. Have a great weekend! Click here for the LIFE SCIENCE SYLLABUS SURVEY !!!
Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... sorry for the poor citation example I am setting...
