Today we explored how plants make roots, leaves, and flowers and the best strategies for survival. We also met Mother Nature! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you don't have anything to make up. Tomorrow we finish our tree of life work as we learn about all the animals in the world!
Yes... they do! Today we explore some of the basics of the plant kingdom (and reviewed photosynthesis). Tomorrow we will explore how plants grow. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY check out the video below... symbiosis!
Today we explored the fungi kingdom. We wrote some fabulous fungi facts and discovered fungal spores are everywhere! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY make sure to check in with another Paideia classmate to get your own fungi facts recorded on page 129 of the notebook (or do your own from the video below).
Today we explored the protist kingdom. We spent the day reading from the textbook, watching Brainpop on Protists, and looking at specimens with the microscopes. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY make sure to check in with another Paideia classmate to fill in your triple Venn diagram (page 128 of the notebook... create one!). Sorry you missed the extra microscope practice!
Today we wrapped up presentations. Nice work kids! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY and you missed your presentation opportunity you will need to schedule with Dr. Haring or Mr. Kelner. No science work to worry about. Next week we continue our swing through the branches of the tree of life... Domain Eukarya!
Today we discussed bacteria and their characteristics. We also explored the good and bad side of all these germs and how to fight them. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can add Jenner, Salk, and Fleming to your GOSATOT. You can copy anyone's Venn diagram for page 127 of your notebook... just find a Paideia classmate!
Today we took a quick SWYK on classification and we compared viruses to living things (they affect living things but are not classified as an organism). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will watch the video below and find a Paideia teammate to copy the Venn diagram on page 126 of your science notebook. Tomorrow we shall explore bacteria. Worry about the SWYK when you return to class.
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...
