Carbon Cycle review today
Today we FINALLY had the best sub EVER to review the carbon cycle. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to ask your classmates what you missed but there is nothing for you to make up for today's class. I will be back in class tomorrow to grade the Counting Turtles lab. Make sure you have all data, analysis, and conclusion CEAL work done for grading!

Data collection today
Today we explored the technique of mark and recapture to estimate populations. We will finish the lab conclusion tomorrow in class. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can get the data from your classmates tomorrow and wrap up your conclusion in class. (If you won't be here tomorrow be sure you finish the analysis and conclusion work before you return to school)

Last official lab of the year!
Today we started our Counting Turtles lab examining how the mark and recapture technique estimates population sizes. It's important to remember that mark and recapture is just one population estimation method (and it sure is better than diving in to count every single turtle). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can join in the data collection in class tomorrow. In the meantime you may watch this video:

Biome Balls are AWESOME
Some of us assembled our biome balls today. Some groups still need to finish (Periods 2, 3, and 4 had a detour to the normal plan today! 🔥🚒). IF YOU MISSED CLASS THIS WEEK (or the last 2 days) check Google Classroom for your absence work. If you just missed class today your group will assemble the biome ball when you return.

Today we made sure we know all about our biome AND divided the biome ball tasks. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY make sure you have your research done. You will find out your part of the biome ball in class tomorrow (Not going to be here tomorrow? Email me for the details)
