Today we explored the factors that affect populations and graphed how populations are really balanced. Truly amazing how all life in the universe is so connected. Tonight you need to finish your CONFERENCE SHEET and complete the SURVEY FOR SCIENCE. I appreciate the honest feedback from those who have already taken it.
Today we reviewed all the important terms of ecology. We already knew many of these terms and only a few were "huh... what's that?" words. If you were absent you may simply print THIS LIST and tape on page 161. Tomorrow we shall explore more about what affects populations (period 3 will run the KMS Classic so 3rd period will do this work on Friday). You may wish to watch THIS VIDEO AGAIN on Life by the Numbers...
Today we took a SWYK on the human body systems. We also completed the human body packets and turned them in (finish for homework if you are NOT DONE). We also watched a video to remind us of the organization beyond cells, tissues, organs, systems, and organisms as begin our study of ECOLOGY.
Your final conference sheet was assigned today (due Friday, June 5th). You will need your notebook to show off your learning AND you will complete this survey for me to gather input about this school year... thanks!
Today we wrapped up our brief study of the human body systems. The truth is outside of science class you talk about your body systems (and organs and tissues) when are sitting in a doctors office and something has gone wrong. This video touches on the serious side of caring for your skin (wear sunscreen!). There are many other decisions you may make (smoking or not smoking, riding bike/motorcycle without a helmet or wearing protective gear, eating a diet high in sugar and processed foods or choosing healthier more plant based foods, a sedentary lifestyle or one that is active, etc...) which will affect the health your body systems. Choose wisely my wonderful students!
