Today we explored how producers, consumers, and decomposers are linked in food chains and webs to pass energy in addition to matter through ecosystems. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can print (or copy) THESE NOTES ABOUT ENERGY ROLES for your notebook page 47. We will continue discussing energy flow in ecosystems tomorrow.
Today took a SWYK on the cell membrane's job. Tomorrow we will review food chains/webs. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY check Google Classroom for your work. 1) take the SWYK, 2) do your notebook check with your folks, and 3) take care of any other missing work since the end of the trimester is this Wednesday! Choose to finish T1 strong!
Today we explored the similarities between bubbles and the cell membrane. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you are welcome to watch the video below and explore at home (or just enjoy the early day of vacation). Reminder if you also missed yesterday's class that you have a replacement lab to do in Google Classroom. Enjoy the long weekend ahead!
Today we wrapped up our Eggsploration of osmosis with the eggs. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will find your replacement lab activity in Google Classroom. Login and complete the Cell Homeostasis Lab. Please let me know if you have any questions while working on this interactive lab activity.
Today we checked our our eggs. Monday we will complete data analysis for this investigation. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can get all data on Monday no problem. Print the notes from today (or copy on page 43 in your notebook) if you take a moment of science. Reminder to finish yesterday's membrane challenge. Check Google Classroom for details on this task. Email me you have any questions. Remember, next week is a short week. 🦃
We are discussing how materials move into and out of cells. In today's class we collected data to EGGSplore osmosis (using an egg 😉) and we played a game to learn more about the cell membrane's job. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you should watch the "Cell membranes are way more complicated than you think" TEDEd below and then visit Google Classroom for today's task. (I will assign the activity during your class period) Tomorrow we will check our eggs AND do some notes work together. I hope you will be back to school to join us!
Today we looked at plant stomata. What's stomata??? Pores that allow water vapor, oxygen, and carbon dioxide to move into and/or out of leaves. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can check out this blog post explaining what we did in class. It's not really a lab you can do on your own (unless you own a microscope). Be sure to finish all missing work! Tomorrow we zoom in to the cell to learn how materials move into and out of cells through the membrane!
We used the microscopes today and looked at plant and animal cells. We also created a Venn diagram comparing plant and animal cells (page 41) in our notebooks. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can create a Venn if you have your notebook. You also could explore this virtual microscope and examine plant and animal cells. Launch the activity; select EXPLORE; click on the slide case and check out all the slides!
Today we did a bit of class review and then took our SWYK on cell organelles. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY check Google Classroom for a fun review "escape room" and THEN take your SWYK. Be sure you are writing fully supported CEAL paragraphs on this one! Tomorrow and Wednesday we will get out the scopes and LOOK AT CELLS.
