Today we began our mitosis flipbooks. Absent kiddos will need to get a booklet tomorrow and then begin. Nothing today. Tonight do only steps 2 and 3 (cover and page 1). DIRECTIONS NEEDED?
Today we began our understanding of the phases, sequence, events, and purpose of cell division. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you should read pages 55-60 in your textbook and COPY THESE NOTES. Tomorrow we shall continue with our understanding of cell division (it's how we make more cells!).
Today we had a day of catch up: finished our DNA models, wrapped up any missing energy work (SWYK &/or labs), and we explored the iPads if done with everything. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to find time to make up the quick SWYK AND any other missing work (HomeBase study halls are a great choice for this!). Next week we wrap up this zoom strand of understanding cells and explore cell division.
Remember to turn your REGISTRATION SHEETS IN ON MONDAY IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE SO ALREADY!!!
Today we decoded a set of instructions to build an organism (just like mRNA decodes DNA to make proteins!) AND we discovered some of the codes were a bit mutated so we got new species! I would expect a quick SWYK tomorrow on all the Nucleus 101 information! Good time to review past posts from the week and explore THIS UTAH GENETICS WEBSITE (explore about proteins, DNA, RNA and more!!!). Fun stuff!
Today we reviewed our DNA NOTES from Friday and our RNA NOTES from yesterday. We then discussed what happens when you have a "typo" in the DNA code (mutations occur). IF YOU MISSED CLASS YOU CAN PRINT THESE NOTES for p. 98 of your notebook. Tomorrow we will decode instructions and build a critter!
Remember the parent meeting tonight for registration. REGISTRATION FORMS DUE BY FRIDAY.
Today was all about the code of DNA and that other nucleic acid: RNA! You watched THIS VIDEO ABOUT DNA; read from the textbook pages 98-101; took notes about DNA code and protein synthesis (IF YOU MISSED IT YOU CAN PRINT THESE); and then watched THIS VERY COOL VIDEO. I admit am making some assumptions about IF you actually got through all of this information (remember you had a sub again today) but I am hopeful you did! Tomorrow we continue with the code of DNA and what happens with typos? PS I had a great visit with my son AND I hope you enjoyed the day off too!
The Utah Genetics site is amazing for information on RNA as well... click THIS LINK TO EXPLORE!!!
SNOW DAY SNOW DAY SNOW DAY SNOW DAY SNOW DAY SNOW DAY SNOW DAY SNOW DAY
Today you had a day of DNA: You watched THIS VIDEO ABOUT DNA; read the textbook pages 61-62; you took notes on DNA structure and function (PRINT THESE IF YOU MISSED IT); and you added the Giants of DNA science to your GOSATOT (Watson, Crick, and Franklin ... discussed the the textbook page 61!). Did you check the website last night? You should click THIS LINK FOR A COOL DNA BUILDING GAME.
Today we had quite a mix of things to work on: some built their DNA model, some started their DNA model, some finished their energy SWYK, some still need to finish the SWYK.
REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU ARE please visit this site and play with building a DNA strand (this entire Utah Genetics site is amazing to explore!).
Tomorrow you will do some reading, some watching, some note taking, and some listening to information about the structure and function of DNA.
Monday you'll do the same only with RNA. I plan to be back Tuesday and we will continue with RNA information.
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed time to work (but please visit the Utah Genetics website too!).

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!
