Silly YouTube wouldn't behave today... watch this (start at 1:02 to skip the lead in).
Work on your Bikini Bottom Genetics worksheet for homework tonight.
All work must be checked in before you can explore with iPads Thursday (Mendel notes, December current events, Indian Why stories, flipbooks...).
it's okay to come with questions on the Punnett worksheet... we can always address those in class. Otherwise, another badly needed work day for many and an exploraday for iPads for the rest.
Remember these links are amazing to help understand this content:
Gregor Mendel and his garden peas opened up so much understanding for the passing of traits from parent to offspring. These principles of heredity are the topic of study this week. Make sure to finish your notes from Section 1 (p. 76-81) tonight. We will move on tomorrow to understanding probability and predicting offspring from genetic crosses.
Be sure to have all past work done and turned in so you can move beyond the basics and explore more on Thursday with iPads...
Need more help in understanding all this genetics stuff? Khan Academy has some good links. So does University of Utah Learn.Genetics. Explore around so you feel more comfortable in your genes (lol).
Homework tonight is to finish YOUR story of why or how something has occurred using the style of the Indian why stories shared today. Most of us learned how Mountain Lion became long and lean. Of course science's story involves DNA mutations and adaptations...
Remember to continue to search for the NEW stories in science (yes, I mean current events)...
It is January so that means CURRENT EVENTS TIME! Back to needing 2 per month.
Remember we are still studying DNA and genetics. Today a little review, tonight you should play some video games: SCIENCE ones!
I am already tired like a Monday morning though it is Wednesday...
Welcome back! Happy New year! Yay for 3 day school weeks!!

Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... I am sorry for the poor citation example I am setting.
