Today we made sure our DNA models were done (or at least started). Tomorrow we will extract DNA from a strawberry! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY check for any missing work in PowerSchool and finish up before the long break. We have another moment this Wednesday for models; otherwise you'll make yours in January!

Hip Hip HOORAY! We modeled DNA
Today we made a model of DNA. We also discovered just how frustrating following directions, cutting, and pasting can be as well. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to make your DNA model. Come in during lunch, study hall, or after school to finish this task if you don't get it done during Monday's class. More with DNA next week!

Let's learn about DNA
Today we learned a bit about the function, structure, and code of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can watch the video below and copy/print THESE NOTES for your notebook page 58. We will continue exploring DNA tomorrow. If you missed class yesterday be sure to finish the SWYK (found in classroom)!

Let's review energy processes
We spent the day on Chromebooks completing today's NEW assignment and continued bonus work.

Practice Practice Practice
Today we spent the class period practicing energy processes.
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY check Google Classroom for today's question "Do you know your energy processes?" Spend about 1/2 an hour on the Flocabulary tasks before you answer.
IF YOU EARN 100% ON ANY OF THE PRACTICE TASKS: BE SURE TO SCREENSHOT AND ADD TO THE ENERGY BONUS BOOST TASK (Yes, I added another bonus task for you to earn bonus boosting!)
Monday we shall continue with energy processes, Tuesday is a catch up bonus boost day, and Wednesday is time to Show What You Know.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Email me OR comment in the Google Classroom tasks.
Be sure to take time this weekend to play in the snow!

Today we explored how photosynthesis and respiration are indeed OPPOSITE energy processes. We also discussed what happens if no oxygen is present! (it's called fermentation) IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can copy/print THESE NOTES for page 55 in your science notebook. Tomorrow bring earbuds to practice the energy processes!
