SWYKs all in so we will find out your thoughts!... Some need to be sure to print out their zombie CEAL to grade... Notebooks should go home to conference with your folks about your conference sheet (due Weds). Crazy day tomorrow with superhero theme for costumes (who is your hero?)! Go Flathead... Go Glacier...

Time to Show What You Know (SWYK) about the cell theory and microscopy.
Pages 8 and 9 of your textbook has a timeline of some of the big happenings in microscopy if you need to add to your own timeline from class today... you can also check HERE FOR MORE HISTORY!
Absent today? Call someone from your reference list to clarify just what we did today with the timeline! You are ALL expected to have all the dates/giants filled in as you come to class tomorrow.
Tomorrow we shall assess your learning (bring a book if you are a quick SWYK-er)...

And here's the video of them dancing...
More with microscopes...
Today you had a chance to use the microscopes! Tomorrow a timeline of discovering with scopes. If you missed today you are expected to stay at lunch, home base study hall, or after school to learn scope use.
October 28th, 2014
Tonight you should review the parts of the microscope. Feel free to watch the video below OR CLICK HERE!
Tomorrow you shall observe prepared slides, pond critters, and more!

Metamorphosis... nature's Halloween costumes? READ THIS....
The countdown begins...
What a wacky day of the cell theory!
I see you are trying to do well on my homework check tomorrow... good thinking! You can review yesterday's post HERE if you need (or just scroll)... ipad users will need to watch the youtube to "see" since flash doesn't work on ipads.
You can search for the word KAYAK, too! Here's your wacky history if you needed a repeat (or if you missed class today... notes continue tomorrow from the book... THIEV notes from Chapter 1, section 1).
Remember tomorrow is the last day for current events and any corrections to the webquest.
October 23rd, 2014
Welcome to tonight's homework!
IF you are in PERIOD 4: You shall explore THIS LINK and write a list of 3-5 things smaller than a cell and THEN summarize (5-8 sentences) what you have learned about exploring the Scale of the Universe 2. If you have your notebook answer these questions on page 32... if you don't, you may use notebook paper and we will paste it in tomorrow.
If you are in Periods 1, 3, 5, or 6: you explored Tick Bait today (TB's Universe on the ipad) and answered some questions about why she is named Tick Bait, 3-5 things smaller than a cell, and summarized what you learned in the app. You will then need to explore THIS LINK for more information on the scale of the universe and then add a number 4 to your Tick Bait questions (page 32 in your notebook)... #4- Compare and contrast the two explorations (Tick Bait vs. Scale of the Universe 2)... you could use a venn diagram or narrative to answer this new homework question #4.
If you were absent today: You will explore THIS LINK and write a list of 3-5 things smaller than a cell and THEN summarize (5-8 sentences) what you have learned about exploring the Scale of the Universe 2.
Yesterday we used our LAPS strategy with a current event from the Science World magazine. Check out THIS POST if you still need to work on current events. You can still turn them in without penalty tomorrow since yesterday's technological difficulties were difficult :) IF you want to explore Scholastic's website more use the student log in code of "kmssc1encehunt"... notice the "i" of science is a "1"... New issue in today's mail!
Maybe you needed to make corrections to the Webquest? You have until Friday to fix conclusions. Do it!
Tomorrow we will literally wrap up the textbook covers AND we shall look at how all living things are organized! THIS GUY gets it right. I have another late night ahead looking through the Needs of Seeds remainders... ugh.

Today is a day to dive into an article and read LAPS to gain understanding of scientific knowledge (Standard 5: Students understand how scientific knowledge and technological developments impact communities, cultures, and societies)! Science World introduces us to the latest and greatest in science research. Today you were to read one article and summarize said article using the LAPS format. If you still need to work tonight you can click the links below for the article (LAPS worksheet here): (TRY THIS ACCESS CODE TO CHECK ONLINE UNDER THE STUDENT VIEW: kmssc1encehunt ... notice the "i" of science is a "1")

Hope you slept in today! Here is a suggestion for breakfast! I love days off!
We have your Needs of Seeds labs... we have your Webquest papers... we even have your notebooks. You have earned the next 4 days off indeed!
There are some of you who were absent today. You need to know that IF I don't already have your lab it is due the moment you come back to school. There are no extra days for absences added for this due date (no time was used this week in class to work on the lab therefore no time needs to be added to a due date for an absence today). I will grab your notebook as well for the midterm work ethic check.
YES, you can still wrap up your Webquest if needed... CLICK THIS
Water your beanie baby and hopefully you will have germination before next Monday! Enjoy the weekend!
