We are on the home stretch as the end of the school year approaches. We are currently in our last unit of study which is Evolution. Students are learning why the physical characteristics of organisms change over time and the factors that contribute to the change. We began the unit discussing Darwin’s theory of Evolution. Here are the links to the assignments and power point lessons we will be doing in this unit.

We are currently learning about photosynthesis and cellular respiration. We are currently working on a webquest and the link is attached.
We are all into cells! Students have been studying about the Prokaryotic which are found in bacteria and Archea and Eukaryotic cells which are fond in plants and animals. Students are also identifying the cell’s organelles and their functions.
