6 characteristics help to define life!
Today we finished notes together for the 6 characteristics all living things share AND we had some solo time to add what all living things need. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can print these 6 CHARACTERISTICS NOTES (or write them in your notebook... page 37) and plan some makeup time at lunch or a study hall to do the needs portion of the notes. Tomorrow we will do some GOSATOT work and vocabulary terms into our notebook glossary.

Today we discussed the THIEVES note taking strategy. We also started to steal information from the textbook about "what is life?" IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can print (or copy) THESE THIEVES NOTES in your notebook page 36. Tomorrow we will continue with the notes from the textbook learning all about the characteristics and needs of living things.

What is life?
Today we explored the characteristics of life and living things. Next week we will explore more. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you don't have anything to make up at home however you will need to get the data table ready for our new lab (you'll have plenty of time... it's going to take a while to get results). Enjoy the weekend just being alive!

New unit starting tomorrow ...
Be sure to wrap up all missing work tonight! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY give one last shot for the Oreo conclusion and turn it in! Maybe try the bonus work EdPuzzle task? Maybe explore "What is LIFE?" with the TedEd videos (all can be found in science Google Classroom). Maybe you just rest.

We are working one more day to fix and finish our Oreo conclusion. Some are done, some are almost done, and some may not have a very good paragraph to share. Sigh. Do your best. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY take the time to do some edit work. Last day to work is tomorrow in class and I won't accept any work past Friday (I'll just grade from what's done in Google Classroom). Feel free to tackle the EdPuzzle Bonus Work (or not). Tomorrow there will be more to explore!

Today we took a SWYK on Standard 1: Science and Engineering Practices to check our understanding of good science-ing and graphs (IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY YOU'LL TAKE THIS WHEN YOU RETURN). Tomorrow we get another opportunity to check/double check our Oreo conclusions (and for some to FINISH them!).
Maybe tonight you are doing the graphing redo work? HERE'S THE DATA FOR THAT TASK. All work from this first unit must be turned in by this Friday. A new unit is beginning!

That's just a theory ... or is it?
Today we reviewed the steps of the wheel and scientific problem solving and discussed theories for the SWYK tomorrow. We also were given some data to use to do a re-do on our graphs (or if choosing a "4" will convert to percentages to graph). Use one sheet of loose-leaf paper with one graph per side... be sure to show the work for percentages. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can wait to see if you need to re-do the graphs or you can choose to do the percentages. Your Oreo conclusion was due by 3 pm today. We will spend Wednesday in class to fix and finish those conclusions. Be ready to SWYK tomorrow with the rest of us! It's the end of the unit for Standard 1!

More graphing today ...
Today we completed another graph on the back of yesterday's boy/girl data, checked for GREATness on our graphs, and then turned them in. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can check out the data from your class (CHECK THIS DOCUMENT) and add this GREAT graph on the back of yesterday's. This weekend is the last opportunity to complete an on time OREO conclusion. Spend some time to make a mega-stuffed paragraph!

A picture of data: GRAPHS
Today we explored using graphs in data analysis. Tonight you have a graph to do: boys vs. girls in your class. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you need to ask someone from your class how many boys and girls to graph (or get the data tomorrow) and PRINT THESE NOTES AND ATTACH TO PAGE 27 OF YOUR NOTEBOOK.
Remember to finish up those OREO conclusions with a mega stuffed CEAL!

Today we discovered that so many math skills are actually science skills too!!! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be ready to graph data tomorrow. We added QUALITATIVE and QUANTITATIVE data to our glossaries today.
