What we will be working on:
This week we will be concluding this unit with cellular respiration.
A test is scheduled for Monday.
There will be a quiz over cellular respiration on Thursday.
Please begin preparing for it as the grading period ends next Wednesday, October 10th.

Study Guide Answers
I will NOT be conferencing with my 3rd period. In order to alleviate the large conferencing numbers in the AC classes, the teachers have given me an amount from each of their 3rd period classes and most of my 3rd period classes have been distributed amongst the other teachers. Therefore, I will be sending emails at random to various parents with regard to conferences this week. However, if you have not heard from one of your child’s teachers by the end of this week. Please feel free to contact me to make sure that there were no mistakes made.
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.
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 carry out various processes. Additional structures, beyond those listed, will be addressed in high school Biology.)
*Notes on cellular respiration
Today we worked on our photosynthesis inforgraphic.
We completed a side by side comparison of photosynthesis and cellular respiration in a flip book.
We took quick notes on photosynthesis and cellular respiration.
3rd- Today students began working on a RAFT for cellular respiration or photosynthesis.
4-7-Students had a work day on their cellular respiration posters.
3rd-We worked on the RAFT. It is due tomorrow.
4-7– We set up a photosynthesis/cellular repiration lab.
3rd– We completed the study guide and played quizizz ahead of the test on Monday.
4th– We evaluated the results of the lab and worked on the study guide. I was talked into collecting posters on Monday.
