Challenge accepted from Wilson and Kelner Home Base ... nice work guys!!!
Today we setup our new clock partners AND we were assigned a textbook for our very own use AND we made book covers from paper bags (a few classes finished/a few classes still have some work to do). Tomorrow we will start with understanding the discovery of cells. Notes to do ... GOSATOT to fill ... Scopes to use! Fun!!!
Today we took a quick SWYK answering which Giant of Science we have discussed thus far is the best one (CEAL paragraph explaining who, what they did, and why it's so awesome). We also made sure our Invasive Species Booklets were done. Finally we explored the THE SCALE OF THE UNIVERSE once again to remind ourselves of all the amazing things larger and smaller than us! Tomorrow we need a paper bag for a book cover AND we set new clocks for the new trimester AND we get ready to explore the history of cell study!!!
Today we had another research day for our INVASIVE SPECIES BOOKLETS. We will have one final day for finishing touches on Monday, November 28th (the due date). Maybe you need to do a little work for best success over the long weekend? Great!!! Remember, NO MARKER... Enjoy the break kids!!!
We are beginning our invasive species project today. You may FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS to know the work expected. Keep a track of your sources using proper bibliography form (minimum 2 sources required). You can take notes in your notebook p. 61/62. Booklets have NO MARKER! Booklets due next Monday!
IF you were absent today ... you can FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS TOO and research zebra mussels.
Today we got our notebooks all caught up with our cycles SWYK and conference sheets. We also had the opportunity to check out some pond critters using a binocular microscope. If you missed class today you might want to EXPLORE THIS SITE WHICH IS A VIRTUAL POND. Next week we research invasive species. I will collect notebooks Tuesday, so maybe you have some unfinished work to actually finish this weekend?
This is a video clip of our critters after I poured them into a new pond section of an ecocolumn!
Today we exlored how abiotic and biotic factors affect a population. Sometimes we increased and sometimes we decreased. We also had some graphing practice once again AND wrapped up the swyk from yesterday. Tonight we don't have any homework to worry about!!! Tomorrow we shall observe a pond community! If you were absent today you missed a fun little game and another graphing task... nothing to make up tho.
Today we took a SWYK on Cycles in Ecosystems. Tomorrow we shall explore how abiotic/biotic factors affect populations and do a little graphing again! Friday we LOOK at pond critters and start our invasive species project. One last night to complete CONFERENCE SHEETS. Tomorrow is last day for a work ethic score. Parents can bring conference sheets with them tonight and still get a "3" for today; tomorrow is only a "2".
Today you had the opportunity to do a little reviewing for the SWYK tomorrow on ecosystem cycling. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY LIKE I DID you can watch THIS VIDEO FOR REVIEW and be sure all notes on water, carbon-oxygen, and nitrogen cycles are done. No textbook? Review the videos I have posted over past few weeks. Be ready for best success on the SWYK! CONFERENCE SHEETS?
Today we continued with our cycles notes. We focused on the carbon-oxygen and nitrogen cycles. Any notes work you still need to finish is on you (SWYK WEDNESDAY). Remember to use the End Of Section Questions as your guidelines in note taking... style is up to you. LAST NIGHT FOR CONFERENCE SHEETS "4"
KMS Science Teacher
Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... I am sorry for the poor citation example I am setting.
In addition the archives are primarily from my days as a ONLY a life science teacher ... 2020 has changed all that!
