You are what you eat!
We get the atoms/elements to build our bodies from the compounds/molecules found in our foods!
Today we created doodle notes of the important molecules of life: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, and water.
Our notes include the names of the compounds, examples of the compound, elements needed to make the compounds, foods we will find these compounds in, AND we added how our cells/bodies use the compounds.
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will find helpful material in Google Classroom. Be sure to use one page for each compound (carbs on page 31, lipids 32, proteins 33, nucleic acids 34, water 35, and IF you want to include vitamins/minerals use page 36).
We will continue our 'you are what you eat' discussion on Monday. Be sure to have notes to join in the conversation!

Today we explored the molecules of life. You should be done with your "Do you Matter?" assignment AND possibly completed the "Build a Molecule BONUS" task. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to visit google classroom and complete this work. IF you don't have your notebook with you at home, just write your definitions on loose leaf paper and we can cut/paste into the glossary when you are back to school.

Let's keep the zoom conversation going
Today we spent the class period exploring what atoms, elements, compounds, and molecules are. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY check Google Classroom for the assignment "Do you matter?" (and YES you do). Tomorrow we shall finish this task and bring the zoom conversation back to living things.

Zoom in Zoom out
Today we explored the organization of living things. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to setup a time to get your zoom notes completed with me (not going to give you a printout of this one). In the meantime, watch the video below AND explore the scale of the universe.

Let's discuss the cell theory
Today we grabbed our notebooks, we filled in our planners for the week's work, we cut out our characteristics cubes, and we discussed a few new giants in science. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can grab your notebook when you return AND update that planner (we need earbuds Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday). Watch the video below to get some background on the history of the Cell Theory and be sure to finish your Please Pass the Bread conclusion!

Final conclusion work day
Today we finished our conclusion work. Some of you gave yourself homework and need to finish your 'Please Pass the Bread!' lab conclusion outside of class time (is due by 3:00 pm today). I also grabbed science notebooks for a midterm notebook check score! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to finish all missing work. I will collect/grade your science notebook when you return to the classroom. I hope you have a wonderful long weekend!

Today we worked on our "Please Pass the Bread!" conclusions. Be sure to answer questions #1-4 FIRST (plus my added 5th analysis question) THEN write your conclusion. Science conclusions are easy CEALs since the CEAL follows the wheel (be sure to call the COPS for that final draft)! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY check Google Classroom for the conclusion template. We will finish our Please Pass the Bread work in tomorrow's class.

Please Pass the Bread!
Today we collected data from our "Please Pass the Bread!" investigation. Less than 10% of the dry breads had mold (2 of the 30 slices had spots of black mold showing). 100% of the moist bread slices showed mold (ALL MOIST BREAD SLICES HAD VISIBLE MOLD GROWTH). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can work on the analysis questions for the lab. Tomorrow we will work on our conclusions.

Let's put the lens on Leeuwenhoek
Today we reviewed the parts and use of the microscope. We also learned about Anton van Leeuwenhoek (a GIANT in the science of microscopes). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY review the games from Wednesday's post, watch the video below, and explore more about Leeuwenhoek's life. Add him to your GOSATOT page! Next week we will wrap up our "Please Pass the Bread!" investigation.
