We are currently exploring cell processes: active and passive transport, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, and mitosis. This portion of the unit will take us beyond Thanksgiving break. attached is a PowerPoint for photosynthesis, and cellular respiration.

Also attached is the 2 column notes page for the PowerPoint. These go together.
Here are some of the links to videos that we are exploring in class, as well as handout that go with them.
This week students are working on a Cell Poster Project. This purpose of this project is for them to demonstrate their knowledge of the eukaryotic cell. The assignment will consist of the students demonstrating their knowledge of the differences between plant and animal cells. This assignment is due by the beginning of class on Thursday.
In addition, your student is receiving a Cell Vocabulary assignment. The expectation is that they work on this assignment periodically throughout the unit. The cell vocabulary assignment is due the day of the Cell Unit Test. As we approach the end of the unit, a firm date for the test will be given. However, students are expected to continue working on the assignment on a regular basis over the next several weeks. Attached is a copy of the assignment.
This week we have begun our cell unit.
The students will begin this week learning about cell theory and its construction.
Students will learn the difference between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells. Homework on this was sent home on 10/24. Yes they have homework.
We will end the week learning about the different parts of the Eukaryotic cell.

We will be starting this week off with Student Learning Objectives (SLO) testing.
Then we will be exploring Predator and Prey relationships, and we will be finishing the week with symbiotic relationships: mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism.
August 8th we are beginning our unit on Ecology.
Students will begin the unit this week by learning the characteristics of living things, and the difference between living and non-living things.
The students will be given a unit vocabulary handout that they will complete as the unit progresses.
We will finish the unit learning about how ecosystems are organized, and the levels of energy that are available in an ecosystem (trophic levels).
Biotic vs. Abiotic:
Characteristics of living things:
1: Living things have Cells
2: Living things respond to their environment
3: Living things have the ability to Reproduce
4: Living things have DNA
5:Living things use energy
6: Living things grow and develop
