You may have conclusion work to finish for your Eggsploring Osmosis lab this weekend/next week. I will be grading final conclusions NEXT Friday when I collect notebooks! Some of you will choose to write the final conclusion neatly in ink on looseleaf (no errors) OR you'll share your finished google doc with me (firstname.lastname@example.org) OR I will read the final conclusion in your notebook when I grade for midterm. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can work on your conclusion on your own since you missed the class time for it (bummer). Monday you don't have school, Tuesday we SWYK and do glossary terms for the "cell and its environment" work, and then we wrap up the cell theory.
Today we gathered data about our eggs. We also calculated percent change AND started some conclusion work. Tonight would be a great time to finish those analysis questions! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can use the class average data and start your analysis work. We wrote the answers on page 81 but can roll into 82 if you need to. Tomorrow we wrap up diffusion and osmosis (and review cell membrane structure).
Today we wrapped up our NOTES on the cell in its environment. We also setup a lab to eggsplore osmosis (yep... with eggs). Tomorrow we collect the data and wrap up the lab. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can print or copy the notes on THE CELL IN ITS ENVIRONMENT for page 79 of your notebook.
Today we began a discussion of how molecules move into and out of cells. Diffusion, osmosis, passive transport, active transport, and selectively permeable are new vocabulary terms for the week. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY the videos below give a bit of information in general about molecules moving in and out of cells. We shall eggsplore more tomorrow (yes... eggs are involved).
Today we reviewed cell organelles and their functions as we acted like a plant cell. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you don't have anything to make up from the activity (however you may check PowerSchool to see if you need to make anything else)! Tomorrow we will discuss the cell membrane and how it moves materials in and out of cells.
Today we added one more energy process to our notes: fermentation. We also took a quick SWYK to wrap up our energy conversation. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can add the fermentation info on then next page AFTER your venn diagram comparing photosynthesis and respiration. You'll need to take the SWYK when you are back (sorry you missed the fermented food).
Today we used our knowledge of photosynthesis to solve puzzles. Twas fun! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you don't have anything to make up. Don't worry... it was successful so we'll for sure do more later in the year! Tomorrow we wrap up the energy processes with fermentation.
Today we modeled how carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen are rearranged from one energy process to the other. We also added a venn diagram comparing/contrasting photosynthesis and respiration. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can do your own on the next blank page AFTER your photosynthesis and respiration notes (either 76 or 77). Make sure you take a review moment today for the energy process we have discussed so far. Maybe you do your own search or you can visit these Quizlet options (GENERAL REVIEW and a more detailed REVIEW).
Today we reviewed the who, what, when, where, why, and how of PHOTOSYNTHESIS and added information about cellular RESPIRATION. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can click the underlined words above and print (or copy) the notes for pages 75 and 76 in your notebook. We will be comparing/contrasting the two processes tomorrow so you can catch up then as well. Videos below give a great overview of the processes.
Today we reviewed how matter and energy is cycled in ecosystems AND began our discussion of photosynthesis. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can get today's PHOTOSYNTHESIS NOTES done tomorrow (or add now on page 75 in your notebook). We will continue our discussion of energy processes tomorrow with cellular respiration and a reminder of the carbon/oxygen cycle.
