Who will win? Bengal Tiger OR WarGoose? Tonight is the final battle for March Mammal Madness 2019. I wonder who will reign supreme mammal of this year's bracket?!?! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY we logged in to Nova Labs Evolution and completed as many missions as class time allowed (battle posters were due at 8 am). You are welcome to login tonight and play OR you can tomorrow in class. We will add one more site to explore tomorrow (Learn Genetics... it is COOL).
Today we finished up our battle posters pitting Moose vs. Bengal Tiger and Sea Lion vs. Warthog/Mongoose. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure your poster is turned in by 8 am tomorrow morning! We are starting Nova Labs next. Watch the trailer below and login to PLAY THE GAME. Use your google account to keep track of your progress. Interesting to examine the relationships of living things based on common characteristics. Ultimately the differences are in our DNA! See... still studying genetics even though it seems like we took a detour! It's always about the DNA!!!
Today we created our battle posters for the Final Roar: Jump Jump BENGAL TIGER vs. Waterfalls MOOSE (or) Tag Team WARTHOG/MONGOOSE vs. CAT-e-Gory SEA LION. We will finish up the posters tomorrow (due by 8 am April 3rd). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can login to classroom and create a poster for SEA LION (in the CAT-e-Gory division). Bring earbuds tomorrow for class! Be sure to check PowerSchool for missing work!
Today we took a SWYK about heredity and Punnett Squares. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will take this once back in class. Review the week's blog posts to be ready! Final results are in for the first rounds of March Mammal Madness. Is your bracket busted? Mine took some hits I must admit! Second rounds are now underway. We will all check in on the results of the March Mammal Madness when we return to school on April 1st! The Elite Trait round will be complete and we will make predictions for the Final Roar! Enjoy your Spring Break until then!!!
Today we learned how to draw and use Punnett squares to determine probability of genetic traits to be passed from parent to offspring. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can watch this video below AND print or copy THE STEPS FOR DRAWING PUNNETT SQUARES. Tomorrow we practice practice practice. Get those CONFERENCE SHEETS signed! You have until Friday for a "3." Some of you still have revision work to do on your Superpower Science papers as well.
Today we explored human traits. Some follow Mendel's dominant and recessive patterns and some show codominance. Some human traits are not even 100% due to our genes! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure your vocabulary is ALL CAUGHT UP. We will discuss probability and learn about Punnett squares tomorrow. Reminder that CONFERENCE SHEETS are due this Friday for a "3"... share your work and get that signature!
Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... sorry for the poor citation example I am setting...
