Today we began our exploration of the chemical compounds in cells. We did some reading and answered some questions about the reading and EXPLORED HOW WE ARE MADE OF MOLECULES. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you should watch THIS VIDEO and be ready for notes tomorrow. It's a new trimester! Reminder to do your NOTEBOOK CONFERENCE with your folks by next Friday, December 8th!
Today we acted like a cell. We definitely had a learning curve for the organelle jobs this first time! Next time will go much more smoothly I am sure. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY nothing to worry about. Pick up a NOTEBOOK CONFERENCE SHEET when you get back to class (due next Friday, December 8th).
Today we observed onion cells under the microscope (but they don't have chloroplasts because they are underground!) AND added Walther Flemming to our GOSATOT (he was the first to stain cells in 1860). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed another day of scopes... come in during study hall?
Today we checked our notebook grades, we had a planner check, AND we looked at assorted animal and plant cells! Tomorrow more with microscopes (hopefully make a few slides to view). Trimester 1 finishes up on Wednesday. Any missing work must be turned in by Wednesday or the zero stays! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will have a chance to view the slides tomorrow AND you can pickup your notebook.
Today we took our cell organelle SWYK and set new clock partners... Trimester 1 is almost done! Notebooks will be graded over the long weekend/break and then we wind up cell organelle exploration next week. Anyone who didn't complete a cell project is expected to do so over Thanksgiving break. Grrrrrr... IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY we set a clock for you (grab it when you return) and make sure I get your notebook for a Trimester 1 check. Next we zoom in to the organelles and explore the chemistry of life.
Today we turned in our cell projects and we reviewed for the cell organelle SWYK tomorrow! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure you have your cell project when you return AND review for the SWYK!
