Knee is really sore today... not going to make it for work tomorrow... BUT I will have someone pick up any work in the red basket for Trimester 1. All work this week on energy will go into Trimester 2 grading.
These were fun little tunes I found: Dumb Ways to Die and Cool Things to Find
End of the trimester that is! All past due work must be turned in by Monday, November 26th. This includes the Eggsploring graphs and questions AND your November current events!
I am slated for knee scope on November 27th and will be gone for a few days. You will be continuing with learning energy processes.
Look at that little red blood cell perched on the tip of a pin! Looks like it is in balance! Very unlike the red blood cell pictures from our textbook showing the effects of osmosis!
Today we eggsplored how osmosis works with vinegar soaked eggs, distilled water, and corn syrup (plus an ocean egg to boot!). Tomorrow we shall eggsplore some more!
Interested in more teaching about osmosis and osmoregulation? (oooooohhhhhh big words!) Watch this!
So much to do to catch up! Check PowerSchool... all is up to date.
Finish your summary for Chapter 1, section 3: “It’s a very odd thing, as odd as can be; Whatever I eat, it turns into ME!” Explain this poem. Think about the molecules that make up cells and molecules that we eat. (Here's another teacher explaining about carbohydrates).
Tomorrow we dive into the cell... (BTW did I tell you about this game already?)
Some of you still have cell projects and conference sheets to finish up... so do them! It turns out I did tear the meniscus in my knee when I tripped so there will be a surgery in my future... it still was pretty funny though to fall flat on my face! Have a great weekend kids...
The data on trends with foods, diseases, and obesity is quite staggering isn't it? Choices kids, it's all in the choices.
Tomorrow we continue with the organization of living things (cells made of organelles made of compounds/molecules made of elements).
Tomorrow you also have cell projects DUE! I am going to finish grading and hopefully have PowerSchool up to date for periods 5 and 6 (sorry guys... seeing your parents tonight for conferences ate into my grading time).
Cell projects due Friday... neatly done. Conference sheets need to be completed by Thursday so your folks know the work you have been doing when they come see us Thursday, November 8th from 3-7 in the old gym!
Thank you Andrea for finding a fun song for cell organelles. I liked this one too...
Wednesday is a catch up day (and iPad rewards for those all caught up).
Today was Cell Day 2012. Click and explore so much more with cells! Your cell projects are due NEXT Friday, and you need to conference about your work with your parents this weekend (my conference time with them is on Thursday November 8th, 3-7 pm in old gym). Have a great weekend AND get all missing work done or start new current events! Anything for science, right!?!?!?
KhanAcademy is a very cool website. This video explains the parts of the cell... watch! (yes there is a lot we have not YET discussed too but that's okay... you can pre-learn) and YES it is a long-ish video but it is NOT me talking so isn't that worth it? ha!
