Here is a link to Dr. King's speech... good words for today and this time of our history...
Today we explored how materials diffuse into and out of cells. We watched the color diffuse away from M&M candies and we hypothesized what may happen to gummy bears after taking a bath for the weekend. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can PRINT THESE NOTES and attach to page 84 of your notebook. We will continue with eggs-ploration of osmosis and diffusion next week (pun intended!). Fun stuff indeed!
Today we acted like a cell once more. Fun stuff. If you still need to do the SWYK you can set a timer for 20 minutes and explain "It's a very odd thing, as odd as can be, whatever I eat, it turns into me!" with a supported CEAEAEAL paragraph (write a nice paragraph that would impress both myself and Mr. Wilson). Tomorrow we explore HOW the cell membrane does it's job and moves materials into and out of cells.
Today we explained "It's a very odd thing, as odd as can be, whatever I eat, it turns into me!" with a supported CEAEAEAL paragraph (if you missed class you will write this paragraph once you return to class). We then explored how nitrogen is cycled in the ecosystem with a fun nitrogen cycle game. Nitrogen is important for both proteins AND nucleic acids. Tomorrow we shall act like a cell once again!!!
Tonight we shall finish our notes on some of the important compounds for living things: CARBOHYDRATES and LIPIDS and PROTEINS and NUCLEIC ACIDS and WATER (click each of the vocab terms and watch videos for more background as to the importance of each molecule ... VITAMINS important too!) Tommorow we will SWYK about the idea that you are what you eat (supported CEAEAEAL). If you missed class today you may wish to have a Ted-ed binge session while you finish notes and answer questions 1-4 for the Math Analyzing Data on p. 29 to your notes!. Remember to add all key bolded vocabulary terms from pages 25-30 in the textbook to your glossaries! Be ready to support your answers for tomorrow's SWYK!!!
Yesterday's video reminding us that atoms combine to form molecules which of course form us !
Today we reviewed the definitions and examples of elements, atoms, compounds, and molecules. We also started notes on carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, and water (textbook pages 25-30.) We are writing 1) the name of the compound, 2) examples of the compound, 3) what elements make the compound, and 4) what important jobs does this compound have in cells?! Tomorrow we shall continue with our understanding of these important chemical compounds! THIS VIDEO HAS MORE INFO TOO!!!
Today we discussed the elements, atoms, compounds, and molecules the make organelles which make cells. We will continue this work next week so IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY JUST WATCH THE VIDEO and catch up when in class once again. Glad there are only a few of you who need to stay on Monday!
Today we acted like a cell... IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will get another change next week... and the week after... and the week after that too! Whew! Reminder of Monday's detention for any missing CELL PROJECTS... I suggest you just get the project DONE!!! Tomorrow we zoom into the organelles!
Today we used microscopes to explore cells: Onion cells (plant) and cheek cells (animal). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can watch this video to see what you missed (you can also come in for homebase or lunch to DO this lab if you want to make it up!). Some of you STILL HAVE CELL PROJECTS TO FINISH ... aaaaack! Reminder that any projects not done by Monday, January 9th results in detention ON JAN. 9th!
Today we had our first day of the new year! Whew... I am ready for a nap!!!
Some of you still have CELL PROJECTS to finish... get them done! Manditory detention next Monday after school for anyone still not done by then! I've given you plenty of advance warning so DO IT!!! (choose best success here kids!)
Tomorrow we shall look at animal and plant cells! Microscopes revisited... cool.

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.
In addition the archives are primarily from my days as a ONLY a life science teacher ... 2020 has changed all that!
