Today we wrapped up our Flowers Seeking Pollinators lab for periods 2, 3, and 4. Periods 5 and 7 had SBAC testing so will finish lab work tomorrow (PJ's all day). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY AND you also missed the start of the lab yesterday: watch the video below about pollination (you are excused from the lab). If you started the lab yesterday but missed today's conclusion work you can predict your pollinator by examining THIS IMAGINARY GARDEN and then answer CONCLUSION QUESTIONS in your notebook page 106. Number 1-4 and answer using complete sentences.
Today we started our "Flowers Seeking Pollinators" lab activity. Periods 2, 3, and 4 will finish data collection and conclusion work tomorrow; Periods 5 and 7 will on Friday (pajama day) due to SBAC testing tomorrow. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY take some time to watch these TED Ed videos and learn a bit about plants. Finish missing work too!
Today we discussed the characteristics of the Plant Kingdom. We explored roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds (plus learned that some plants don't have roots nor seeds). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY take a moment to eat a few plants and breathe that awesome oxygen they give us. Check PowerSchool for missing work and finish up!
The Sweet 16 is set for March Mammal Madness. How's your bracket holding up?

IF you want to head down a YouTube rabbit hole of microbial life: CHECK OUT JOURNEY TO THE MICROCOSMOS
Today we explored the bacteria groups: Domain Archaea and Domain Bacteria. We find ourselves pretty connected to our bacteria plus living in Montana gets us pretty close to those who spend their life in extremes. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to watch the video below AND explore life in extreme heat in Yellowstone National Park.
We are swinging through those tree of life branches now. Today we discussed viruses (which are NOT alive). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to watch the video below and print/copy THIS VENN for your notebook page 95.
The battles have begun! Those who still need to turn in brackets have lost a potential point from the wild card round BUT you still can get brackets in tomorrow before Round 1 battles begin at 6 pm MST. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will find a digital bracket in Google Classroom (make sure you finish the classification task too).
