Today we had a day to finish packets and explore the Ted Ed and Brainpop videos of body systems. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to wrap up packet work (remember the graph of time spent in digestive system is an OPTIONAL graph). Tomorrow we have a microscope moment to explore the Protists I love so much!
Today we added the respiratory system packet work. Bringing in oxygen is important for releasing energy energy energy from digested food! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can watch the videos below and work on your packet. Tomorrow is another catch up day (or an explore day with Chromebooks... bring those earbuds!).
And if you hike often you may need backcountry pooping places ... READ ABOUT THEM
Today we continued understanding the process of digestion using a model (from mouth to anus). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can work on your packet at home and EXPLORE THIS REALLY COOL SITE for details about digestion (click START and watch). You can also watch Ted-ed videos posted today and YESTERDAY. Remember the graph of time spent in digestive system is an OPTIONAL graph to gain another Standard 1 grade.
Today we started to digest the information about the digestive system (yep... a new packet). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can grab one from me during tomorrow's HomeBase study hall. We will model digestion tomorrow in class.
Chicken wing dissection in class today! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you could check out HOW TO DISSECT A CHICKEN WING. Otherwise nothing for my class to make up (unless you need to finish the packet for support, movement, and covering... finish that by Monday).
Today is National Periodic Table Day!
Remember all living things are made of cells but ALL matter is made of elements!
Today we wrapped up the first packet work. Whew... book learning is not nearly as easy as copying notes from a teacher! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to check each day's post for additional support in completing your packet. Tomorrow we all dissect a chicken wing so we can investigate all the tissues we discussed this week with skeletal, muscular, and integumentary (skin) systems!!! Next week we bring energy back into conversation!
Today we explored the skin you're in. Tonight you need to wrap up packet work (and complete the CEAL about sunscreen use). Tomorrow you'll need your earbuds so you can spend the day exploring all that Brainpop has to say about the skeletal, muscular, and integumentary systems. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can do some packet work this evening (you also can plan for some study hall time tomorrow morning).
Today we reviewed the skeletal system work so far in our packet AND we began work with the muscular system. Tonight you may enjoy some muscle for dinner (meat)! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY set aside 15 minutes to work on the packet (look up whatever you need to online or watching the videos below) and remember you can always come in at lunch tomorrow to catch up on the activities and use the textbook. Tomorrow we explore the skin.
It's amazing the new science coming all the time: READ ABOUT LAB GROWN MUSCLES
Today we began our packet work to understand functions, structures, and even some problems of the skeletal system (we also wrapped up the list of body systems for FRIDAY'S NOTES. Tomorrow we will work on muscular system information and catch up any missing skeletal work. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY come grab a packet in HomeBase tomorrow and know you are one day behind. I am sure you will catch up by Thursday's due date!
KMS Science Teacher
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!
