Homework is to continue with your Classifying Organisms outline THIEVE notes (pages 16-24 From Bacteria to Plants textbook). Not sure what to do for the outline? Follow THIS! Start notes on page 104 of the notebook (this set of notes will run a few pages I am sure!).
End of Section Questions due Thursday!!! I will check your notes then as well...
Fix/finish any critters that haven't yet been turned in!
Tomorrow we will discuss the levels of classification (DKPCOFGS) and give you a few mnemonic devices to help you remember (and a song... remember this song?)
Busy week ahead once again! (have your THIEVE work done by Thursday so we can check your key!)
All it takes is DOING the work expected of you!
Conference sheets... sit down with folks tonight!
Critters... finish them up!
Any of the past work on Darwin still missing? Plan to come in to use the Cells textbook after school this Tuesday until 4 pm, any other day after school until 3:30 pm, during Team Cougar homebase study hall (but NOT at lunchtime or before school... sorry).
IF you were absent today you need to swap textbook tomorrow, get your new passes, and turn in any of the work collected today!
Tomorrow we dive into Classification and a new set of THIEVEs notes! Did you enjoy today's video? HERE it is again (I really like the song)...
Monday we will start with Classification of living things (good thing we know all the characteristics used!)...
This weekend is your LAST CHANCE to use this textbook for completion of your missing Darwin work (outline notes and end of section Q's).
Tuesday after school will be a detention time where these books will be available again... and that's it!
Finish your CREATE A CRITTER this weekend... due on Monday!
Take a moment to discuss science with your folks and get your Conference Sheet signed!
Still finishing today's CEAL paragraphs? HERE are the questions... turn them in the red basket before 8 am Monday!!!
Time to create your own critter with adaptations as well! Did you leave your Create a Critter instruction outline behind? HERE is another copy for you! IF you want to build a model I say YAY! But all that is required is a labeled drawing with the outline of information for your new species. I am happy to have critters tomorrow BUT you can turn them in on Monday as well! If you need help with adaptations do a google search!
Many of you need to finish your notes for Darwin's Theory PLUS the End of Section Q's on p. 145. You only have this textbook for a few more days so GIT 'R DUN! If you were absent... WATCH THIS and add your own hand traced with the information from the video on page 101 in your notebook!
Today we played an activity to simulate how populations can be affected by natural selection.
I am tallying all the data from the day and we shall revisit briefly tomorrow.
Make sure to finish your notes on Darwin's Theory pp. 138-145 AND answer the End of Section Questions on p. 145 USING COMPLETE SENTENCES!!!
Tomorrow we explore all the ways we affect changes in populations as well as some more adaptations for survival.
HERE is the pepper moth simulator... fun!
Today we visited the Galapagos Islands (on a video field trip) to learn a bit about Darwin's Theory.
Your work tonight is THIEVE notes on Darwin... pages 138-145 using outline format. Complete the End of Section Questions on p. 145 (use loose leaf AND answer using complete sentences!).
Not sure of how to set up the outline? Use THIS as a guideline for how to set up the Headings... you add details as needed!
The debate on GMO's is a heated one. Today we spent class time doing just that: debate. IF you were absent you are excused from this first assignment (but remember you will write to the topic with Dr. Haring)...
Folks really enjoyed the information from THIS infographic (I find it interesting to discuss both sides of the story)... I think anytime you look at data you need to be careful to see all the sides! Scientific method applies!
This week we shall meet Charles Darwin and understand a bit more about natural selection and adaptations... interesting how the GMO debate is connected to changing organisms over time with a little snip of DNA!!!
Tomorrow we do some THIEVE work on Darwin's Theory...
Today we continued research on GMO's... the pros and cons.
Be ready for discussion on Monday (add more to your notes this weekend and show me Monday and for you and only you I will change the grade!)
Sorry to say but no other work will be accepted on Monday... you had your chances!
NEW trimester NEW clean slate... OLD teachers with SAME expectations! We move it faster kids... be ready!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND... hope no one falls down!
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!
