Nucleus 101 SWYK today ...
Today we reviewed how DNA has instructions that RNA copies and ribosomes read to assemble proteins from amino acids. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you need to take the SWYK (tomorrow study hall or lunch?). We will act like a cell tomorrow as we wrap up cells and move into heredity.

Decoding to build organisms ...
Today we decoded instructions to build critters just like RNA decodes DNA to make proteins!!! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed some fun! Be ready for tomorrow's SWYK! Everyone should review!!!

DNA coding ...
Today we discussed the code of DNA and RNA. We also discussed mutations. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you should print or copy THESE NOTES (page 84 in notebook would be delightful). Tomorrow we shall act as RNA and decode instructions to build an organism! Reminder of a detention after school, too!

DNA code work begins ...
Today we finished up our DNA model and discovered the coded language for protein synthesis. We will continue with this topic on Monday and then do some decoding and building work ourselves on Tuesday! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY print or copy THESE NOTES and watch the video below (add a venn diagram on the bottom of the notes page comparing DNA and RNA... attach to notebook page 83). Any missing work from this last unit must be completed by Monday or you will have detention Tuesday, January 30th!

DNA models today ...
Today we built a DNA model. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to spend some time to catch up! If you didn't finish today, you also will need to catch up! DNA code work tomorrow!

DNA notes ...
Today we began our understanding of DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid).
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed reading about the structure of DNA and how replication works. Join me in HomeBase to read the book OR you can WATCH THIS and get some background tonight. COPY THE NOTES from today too for p. 82 of your notebook.
Tomorrow we build a construction paper model of DNA using our personalized initials... fun stuff!
Friday we will start to explore the code of DNA and what happens when mistakes occur (yep... even DNA has mistakes!).
One of my favorite websites is Learn Genetics... try the DNA game from today! (you need adobe flash)

Cell processes SWYK ...
Today we took a SWYK on cell processes. We also reviewed information about cancer. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to check plan a Study Hall, lunch, or after school time to make up the SWYK. Tomorrow we dive into DNA and understanding inheritance and variation of traits! Finish flipbooks tonight!
Wrapping up cell processes ...
Today we had an opportunity to check our flipbooks page by page to make sure they were complete. Some of us still have work to finish tonight. Be sure to follow THE INSTRUCTIONS step by step!
Tomorrow we will SWYK on all cell process:
Yes you can use your notebook but blank pages won't help much... scroll the past month of posts for notes and review!
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed a review time. Be ready for the SWYK. We will explore more about cancer tomorrow, too.

Cell cycle work wrapping up ...
Today we had a flipbook workday. I will accept completed work on Monday or Tuesday... whatever time for best success! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed class work time... same due date for you (Monday or Tuesday when done). Need the INSTRUCTIONS? How about RESOURCES? Period 7 had an alternative activity so if you missed 7th period you'll need to check in with me for missing work.
