Fun at the fairground ...
Today we had a great field trip and some adventures in escape rooms and bingo back at school. During 7th period we discussed the idea of synesthesia (see yesterday's post) and found a really cool website to explore and I highly recommend you check it out! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to check PowerSchool for any missing work. Next Friday is the trimester end and all work (even ABSENT work) must be completed by March 6th!

Organs ... cool ...
Today we had a review of the systems of the body (including viewing actual organs!) and wrapped up this human body unit. Tomorrow we have the Making Montana fair; states bingo, and a Human Body escape room! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed out on some body systems review AND some actual organs to explore! Maybe you spend some review time yourself this evening?! Field trip tomorrow!
I know we discussed senses yesterday, but smell was definitely a factor all day long (plus those organs got a bit smelly by day's end). These Ted Eds discuss all sorts of smelling.

Senses labs today ...
Today we had an opportunity to explore our senses and understand a bit more about reflexes and other "no brainers" that just become habit in our brains. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can watch more videos to learn about your nervous system. IF you want to join homebase tomorrow you can try some of the lab activities! Field trip Friday!!!
February 26th, 2020
Today we added details about the nervous system: neurons, learning, senses, reflexes, and more! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY settle in for some videos and learn about your brain! You can get the notes when you return. Remember we are headed to the MAKING MONTANA FAIR this Friday!
February 25th, 2020
Today we started with our understanding of the Nervous System. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can get your notes from me during HomeBase study hall OR during class. We will continue discussing the nervous system tomorrow! AND we are headed out for a field trip Friday!

Keeping you healthy ...
Today we wrapped up the systems work thus far. Next week we explore the nervous system as we wrap up our human body unit. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure you write your CEAL on homeostasis (last task of packet AND is in Google Classroom). The purpose of the paragraph is to assess your writing skill AND your understanding of how these organs maintain balance.
Only 2 videos today ... scroll back and watch all videos for all the systems thus far!
February 21st, 2020
Today we are wrapping up the packet work (whizzed through excretory system didn't we?). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you now have a CEAL to write about homeostasis. Check in with Google Classroom for the details (reminder the skin, lungs, and liver all play roles with maintaining a balance of body systems). Be sure to finish the packet work FIRST... then you can write your CEAL on homeostasis. Tomorrow we have opportunity to explore all the Ted-Ed videos/Brainpop/etc. (bring earbuds).
February 20th, 2020
Today we wrapped up packet work (and explored a bit about fighting disease). Tomorrow we write the CEAL on homeostasis ... maybe you write a rough draft tonight? IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY work on the packet (unless you don't have one yet ... in that case watch the videos and get some sleep so your immune system does it's job!). We have Chromebooks tomorrow and Friday so bring those earbuds, too!

Let's do the circulation ...
Today we began work on the final packet (but not final systems). How do we transport the oxygen and food to the cells of the body? THE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM!!! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to watch the videos below and then grab a packet when you return. Tomorrow is an early out (so short day with no HomeBase) but you'll have some class time to catch up.

I love science ...
Today we wrapped up packets (I love completed work) and took a quick microscope moment to view live protists (I love the Protist kingdom). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to complete the packet since I will collect on Tuesday whether finished or not (I love that we have an extra day for the weekend). Next week we shall discuss transport and waste removal (I love that we will discuss the heart next week... hope yours doesn't get broken today).
