Today we added an illustration of cells to our notebook (color coded to the function notes from yesterday). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can use the videos below to complete your notes (if you started them yesterday). If you have missed all organelle work so far, you can create a t-chart on page 53 listing the jobs of the organelles. If you have a printer you can use THIS SHEET INSTEAD (or just model as a template for notebook work). There are many resources out there to learn the cell parts and their functions! LOOK THEM UP!!! Tomorrow I will assign your cell project. It's an independent and creative opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of the cell organelles!
Today we met the organelles and the functions they do for the cell. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to grab a sheet from me tomorrow so you can meet the organelles too!
Today we learned that cells are made of organelles (we reviewed that all living things are made of cells; the cell is the basic unit of structure and function of living things; and all cells come from other cells). Tomorrow we will meet and greet these organelles much more closely. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY we added the 3 parts of the cell theory to page 51 of our notebook, added ORGANELLE to our glossary, and we took a moldy Monday microscope moment to look at the bread one last time.
Today we took the SWYK for microscopes.
We also picked up our NOTEBOOK CONFERENCE sheet for those with parents who were NOT able to make conferences. Enjoy the notebook tour with your folks. You will see that we actually do much more work than what is shown in PowerSchool!
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to make up the SWYK and grab a conference sheet if you need it.
Next week we shall zoom into the cell and explore the cell organelles!
Today we reviewed and got ready for tomorrow's SWYK on microscopes. Spend a bit of review time tonight! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you definitely want to spend review time tonight! I'm gone tomorrow to cheer the Wolfpack to victory but in class you will SWYK and get a notebook conference sheet if your parents aren't able to make conferences today.
Today we learned a new skill (making a slide) and a new microscope to use (binocular/dissecting scope). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed the lab. Next time we use the scopes be sure to let me know that you weren't here for the lab (with conferences and me gone Friday I'm not available to make up the lab with you now). Be ready for the SWYK on Friday knowing parts of the microscope and their functions!
Maybe you want to make your own microscope OR just check out electron microscope images. Watch the video below OR CLICK THIS LINK!
Today we used the microscopes. We started with the classic "e" slide and discovered how the lenses make everything move backwards!
We also practiced finding, focusing, and centering some prepared slides. Tomorrow we will work with the scopes again!
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you'll need to come in for extra scope practice! Lunch or after school would be best (no more study halls this week!). Add these notes to your notebook on page 47 too. AND REVIEW SCOPE PARTS!
Today we reviewed the parts of the microscope. Tomorrow and Wednesday we will USE the scopes in class! Know your parts (SWYK Friday). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you may need to pop in for study hall, lunch, or after school to use the book for the GOSATOT or the parts work. If you missed class today AND still have a Please Pass the Bread conclusion to finish remember you missed the after school support session. Tomorrow is the last day you can turn in that paragraph (it's very late and we are moving on)!
Today you spent some time learning about microscopes and added some of the Giants in Science for microscopes and the cell theory. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to watch video below and make the time to come in to the classroom either study hall, lunchtime, or after school to get caught up (you need some book time). Hope you had a safe and fun Halloween!

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!
