Today we worked on our Fabulous Fungi Facts worksheets.
Due Friday (BOTH PAGES)...
There will be a new CEAL paragraph to write Friday (you can grab the question during SBAC tomorrow)...
Protist CEAL in by Friday or zero.
Next week we discover plants.
The lovely fuzz of a moldy strawberry... fungus amongus indeed!
Today we looked at some lichen, some mold, and dissected a mushroom.
Fabulous Fungi Facts are underway! Tonight wrap up the graph and maybe another section or two? Tomorrow in class we will have some work time, but not all class period. We have a few other fungal facts to explore!
I shall add another CEAL for the week so make sure the protist CEAL is done!
Today we introduced the Fungi Kingdom... nothing to worry about if you were absent HOWEVER you need to have your CEAL paragraph done from Friday...
"IF all the algae suddenly disappeared from the earth's waters, what would happen to living things on earth? Explain using CEAL paragraph skills." Write your paragraph on looseleaf paper and turn in tomorrow (it's late kids... was due today). Reminder to track kids that you don't get any extra time for work from missing class...
Tomorrow we will begin work on our Fabulous Fungi...
Today we explored all the GOOD foods and additives to foods from algae, some BAD diseases caused by protists (giardiasis, malaria, amoebic dysentery), and the UGLY algal blooms and red tides. Read pages 84-86 in the text to understand more of the bad and ugly side of algal blooms. The video clip below shows a really good algae bloom of bioluminescent dinoflagellates. THIS was a neat video we watched in class.
One final question to write about on looseleaf: "IF all the algae suddenly disappeared from the earth's waters, what would happen to living things on earth? Explain using CEAL paragraph skills."
Have this CEAL paragraph completed by Monday (including track stars). Monday is also LAST day for graphs.
Great day observing protists... Mr. Eash will have them tomorrow for Team Champions! Tomorrow we will discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of the protist groups. Track folks are expected to check in to MY Weebly webpage tomorrow to know what to do for make-up work. Enjoy the night!
(sloths have algae living in their fur in a symbiotic relationship)
And maybe even a nap... Great job today with your perseverance in completing the SBAC...
Tomorrow we have presentations for your SS/ELA topics!
Today we learned a bit more about the Protist kingdom. We filled in our venn diagram AND watched a video. IF you missed class today I would encourage you to select a video or two from THIS SEARCH on Protists. We will not be back in the science classroom until Thursday April 17th! You DO however know where the red basket is... so any graphs or questions should find their way into the red basket! Protist viewing on Thursday!
Today's "Slime TV" is a protozoan called Amoeba... watch the pseudopods ooze and flow to gobble food!
