Snow Day 3! Friday, January 19, 2018

Please take this survey. You may have to login to Office 365.

Survey

Standard:

S7L2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe how cell structures, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems interact to maintain the basic needs of organisms.

b. Develop and use a conceptual model of how cells are organized into tissues, tissues into organs, organs into systems, and systems into organisms.

c. Construct an argument that systems of the body (Cardiovascular, Excretory, Digestive, Respiratory, Muscular, Nervous, and Immune) interact with one another to carry out life processes. (Clarification statement: The emphasis is not on learning individual structures and functions associated with each system, but on how systems interact to support life processes.)

Classwork:

Today we dissected chicken wings to see how the muscular and the skeletal system work together to move organisms. Some were excited by this prospect and a few were reviled. If you were absent, you are excused from this lab.

Homework:

We will check 3.3 on Tuesday. Enjoy your 3 day weekend.

b. Develop and use a conceptual model of how cells are organized into tissues, tissues into organs, organs into systems, and systems into organisms.

Homework:

DR 3.3 was handed out to all classes except 1st period. Sorry, I forgot! It is due Friday.

December 14

Thursday and Friday, December 14, 2017

Standard:

S7L2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe how cell structures, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems interact to maintain the needs of organisms.

a. Develop a model and construct an explanation of how cell structures (specifically the nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, cell wall, chloroplasts, lysosome, and mitochondria) contribute to the function of the cell as a system in obtaining nutrients in order to grow, reproduce, make needed materials, and process waste.

(Clarification statement: The intent is for students to demonstrate how the component structures of the cell interact and work together to allow the cell as a whole to carry out various processes. Additional structures, beyond those listed, will be addressed in high school Biology.)

Classwork:

Thursday:

Today we cut and pasted the reactants and products for photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

Friday:

Today we took a quiz.  Please check Synergy. We will go over the quiz on Monday.

We also finished discussing Cellular Respiration, Photosynthesis, and Active Transport.

Finally, we looked at the results of the photosynthesis and cellular respiration labs.  We will complete the lab report on this on Monday.

Homework:

Wednesday, when the substitute was here, you had 50 minutes to complete a directed reading and a worksheet. Both should have been completed in class, however, many of you did not finish them. Neither did you finish them for today which set you back in understanding today’s lesson. Walk in to class tomorrow with those pages completed please. The 4 of you that left them on your tables with no names may pick them up during homeroom.

We have a quiz over active and passive transport as well as photosynthesis and cellular respiration and a summative on Monday.

Nano Technology Announcement

Students,

I hope you are enjoying the snow!  We were already on a very tight timeline to finish the nano technology project and with the excitement of Friday’s weather, I feel that I need to cancel the mandatory participation in this project.  Therefore, participation in the Gen Nano contest is now voluntary. I hope those that were excited about the project continue. I have such smart and talented students this year, that I truly believe there is at least one if not more Gen Nano winner in one of my classes!

Enjoy your weekend!

Mrs. Scoville
