Week of Nov. 16 – 20

The students are beginning to learn about cell reproduction this week.  Check out below to see what we are doing each day.

Monday 11/16/15: The students began their bell ringer practices today to keep the information we learned this year current in their minds.  They will do one review question a day that relates to past units.  Also, the students took a final assessment on geologic time today as well.  They took their pre-tests for cell reproduction, but no one tested out this unit.  🙁

Tuesday 11/17/15: AM – the students will all be getting on the computers today to get their first look at what it will be like to take the AIR tests on the computers.  PM – The students watched a video today about cells to help give them some back ground on the job of cells.  HW – Cell reading and labeling

Wednesday 11/18/15: During science, the students began some fact gathering about cell division and mitosis today.  The read and took notes on a notes form.  These notes were then discussed in class to make sure that everyone had the correct information to work with.  To end class, the students began an illustration and fact sheet about the stages of mitosis.

Thursday 11/19/16: We began class by watching a quick video by the Ameba Sisters about Mitosis (look it up on youtube!!).  Next, the students finished working on their fact and illustrations sheet about mitosis.  HW – Mitosis WS

Friday 11/20/16: The students were on the computers today doing a webquest about Mitosis.  The webquest had them going to three different cites to gather facts and pictures about Mitosis.  Ask your students what they learned today through doing their webquest.

Week of Nov. 9 – 13

During science this week, the student will be finishing their work with geologic record.  Read below to find out what the students will be working on.

Monday 11/9/15: During science today the students are actually having a guidance lesson with Ms. Frey.  Ask your students what they did today in their lesson.

Tuesday 11/10/15: The students will be learning about absolute ages of rocks today and the method scientists use to radiometric date rock samples.  HW – three absolute age worksheets

Wednesday 11/11/15: AM – Veteran’s day festivities. PM – In science, the students will look at life during geologic time.  HW – Read the Geologic Time reading and NT

Thursday 11/12/15: The students will compare the difference between relative age and absolute age in rocks while doing a skittles lab.

Friday 11/13/15: During science, the students will do a recap on the geologic column.  They will follow up by doing a lab that has them creating their own geologic column.  HW  – Review WS
