Science – June 16

  • Agenda
    • Discuss and go over Sensory Stations
    • Weekly Check #18: the Nervous System – These grades will be posted and on Monday you will have an opportunity to revise.

    • None!  We are wrapping up.

Science – June 14

Note:  It is a good idea to check grades daily as we get closer to the end of the year.

Science 1 and 4
  • Agenda
    • Complete self-assessment on Learning Target 3 in science journal
    • Introduce and begin Sensory Stations – We will complete this in the next class period.
  • Assignments
    • Last chance to turn in Heart-Rate Lab (Friday)
Science 3
  • Agenda
  • Assignments
    • Last chance to turn in Heart-Rate Lab (Friday)
    • Final Weekly Check will be Friday!

Science – June 13

Note:  It is a good idea to check grades daily as we get closer to the end of the year.

Science 1, 2 and 3
Science 2 and 3
  • Agenda
    • Complete self-assessment on Learning Target 3 in science journal
    • Introduce and begin Sensory Stations – We will complete this in the next class period.

    • Last chance to turn in Heart-Rate Lab (Friday)

Science – June 8

Science 1, 2 and 4

Science – June 7

Science 1 and 4
  • Agenda
    • Heart Rate Lab
      • Go over Heart Lab Scoring Guide
      • Review Independent (IV) and Dependent (DV) Variables:
        • IV = The variable that is purposely changed
        • DV = The variable that changed in response.  It is usually what is measured as the data.
      • Analysis questions will be offered as extra credit.
    • Post Dissection Structure and Function Matching Activity
      • Small groups worked on matching the structure and function of tissues seen in the dissection.  We will continue this tomorrow/the next day.
  • Assignments
    • Heart Rate Lab – Hypothesis and Data (Due Thur)
Science 3
  • Agenda
    • Turn in Heart Rate Lab with self-assessed Heart Lab Scoring Guide
    • Complete Post Dissection Tissue Structure and Function Sort Worksheet.  See classroom for a copy of matching structures and functions.  Remember, for the final question, use the statement, “Organs are made up of tissues (groups of cells) performing specific tasks and keeping the body as a whole functioning” as the topic sentence.  Then use your notes as evidence.
    • Begin working on Anatomy of the Eye in preparation for the eye dissection on Friday.  As a class, we completed the labels and began discussing the functions for the cornea, iris, and vitreous humor.
    • Dissection Comfort Exit Card – On a scale of 1 – 5, how comfortable are you about the cow eye dissection?

Science – June 6

Science 4
  • Agenda
    • Return Weekly Check 17:  Body Systems
    • Heart Rate Lab
      • Review reading and why your heart-rate increases when your activity increases.
      • In small groups, decide on activities to increase and decrease heart rate.  Write a hypothesis to explain why your heart rate should increase or decrease.  See Below:
        1. Cells need Oxygen to access energy (see Cellular Respiration Reading).
        2. When activity level changes, Oxygen demand changes.
        3. Breathing rate increases/decreases with Oxygen demands.
        4. Heart rate changes to match Oxygen demands.
      • Collect Data
