http://www.exploratorium.edu/learning_studio/cow_eye/video_big_all.html

6/8/17 D-DAY

Homework:

For students that did not complete the table on the front side of the worksheet today in class, you need to do so tonight for homework. I’ve attached the sheet with the structure and function cards. Post Dissection Structure and Function

WORKSHEET: Tissue Structure and Function Sort Worksheet

Pluck Dissection Video

Here is a video going over the same thing we are doing in class with the pig pluck dissection. This is great for any student who missed the dissection or was not  in the room when we watched it:

Week of 5/22 to 5/26

Lesson 1:

WARM UP: This warm up was off of a handout. Here’s a link to it. Students responded in their journals: http://blogs.acms.wlwv.k12.or.us/staff/JonesJ/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Human-Body-Basics.pdf

NOTES: We took these notes on structure and function in the human body: Structure and Function In Human Body Notes

CELL ANALOGY SHARE OUT: We finished up sharing cell analogies.

HOMEWORK: Study cell organelles for a test on Wednesday/Thursday.

Lesson 2

WARM UP: For our warm up  students worked on the questions on the backside of the cell analogy share out worksheet: Cell Analogy Share Out Worksheet

SHARE OUT: I took responses and recorded ideas on what to write for the cell analogy share out worksheet. These are due tomorrow.

BODY SYSTEM GROUP RESEARCH: In groups, students researched a specific body system. They are creating a small poster to present to the class with this knowledge

HOMEWORK: Study organelles for a test on Wednesday/Thursday.

Lesson 3

WARM UP: Reading on mitochondrial disease and response in journal to prompt. Here is a copy: What is Mitochondrial Disease

ANNOUNCEMENT: Test on organelles moved to first class AFTER weekend.

DISCUSSION: We made connections between our different analogies and mitochondrial disease.

BODY SYSTEM GROUP RESEARCH: In groups, students researched a specific body system. They are creating a small poster to present to the class with this knowledge.

HOMEWORK: Study Cell Parts for Test. Finish Survival Guide if not done (PAST DUE).

Week of 5/15 to 5/19

Lesson 1

WARM UP: Students completed a check in on Cellular Respiration. If any student missed that. They should come see me to make it up.

The rest of the day was a workday for the Cell Analogy Project and Survival Guides.

HOMEWORK: Survival Guides. (DUE FRIDAY)

Lesson 2

WARM UP: How Insulin Works Warm Up

ACTIVITY: Reading notes on Tissues: Cells & Tissues Microscope Investigation

ACTIVITY: Working on cell analogies or survival guides once reading notes were done.

CELL ANALOGY PROJECT: They are due Friday (Thursday for period 3). In class on that day, projects will be presented as groups tour and view different projects.

HOMEWORK: Survival Guides (DUE FRIDAY)

 

Week of 5.8.17 to 5.12.17

Lesson 1

NOTE: I had a sub on 5.8.17

Warm Up: A reading on cellular respiration. Cellular Respiration Reading

Work Time: Students worked on cell analogy projects. Cell-Analogy-Poster-WalshVersion

Homework: Spend 30 minutes working on your survival guide. At this point you should have submitted your writing to me and are waiting for me to approve your written work for putting your book together. In the meantime, work on your illustrations for the final work you plan on  turning in. Our “GOAL” (not a deadline) for turning this in is Friday. The deadline will be next Friday.

Lesson 2

WARM UP:

  • Often when we mention “respiration” we think of breathing. What is the connection between breathing and cellular respiration?

Work Time: Students worked on cell analogy projects. Cell-Analogy-Poster-WalshVersion

Homework: Spend 30 minutes working on your survival guide. At this point you should have submitted your writing to me and are waiting for me to approve your written work for putting your book together. In the meantime, work on your illustrations for the final work you plan on  turning in. Our “GOAL” (not a deadline) for turning this in is Friday. The deadline will be next Friday.

Lesson 3

WARM UP:

  • What are two cell parts used during cellular respiration? (HINT: Think about how the ingredients for respiration get into the cell and where the ATP is made).

Work Time: Students worked on cell analogy projects. Cell-Analogy-Poster-WalshVersion

Check In: There was a weekly check in on Cellular Respiration. Come see me to make it up if you missed it by the end of next week.

HOMEWORK: Survival Guide Illustrations and Writing if you have not done so yet.

5/1 to 5/5

Lesson 1

Warm Up: Describe an adaptation the plant cell has to help the plant  grow upright and have enough structure to stay upright.

Plant Measurements: We did our final plant measurement. Want your plants? Take them home by Friday.

Survival Guide or Cell Analogy Work Time: Students worked on finishing up the rough draft to their cell analogy and then finishing their survival guide writing. Writing should be peer evaluated by and submitted to me no later than Friday. Submit it through Google Classroom.

Handouts: Survival Guide Peer Review Form

CHECK LIST FOR COMPLETING SURVIVAL GUIDE

Cell-Analogy-Poster-WalshVersion

Homework: FINISH SURVIVAL GUIDE WRITING

Lesson 2

Warm Up: Sandwich analogy warm up

Survival Guide or Cell Analogy Work Time: Same as above.

Homework: FINISH SURVIVAL GUIDE WRITING

Lesson 3

Warm Up: What different outcomes did you find for your plants you grew under different conditions. Can you think of how any of those differences might be happening at a cellular level?

Sentence Frame: The plant I grew showed… while the other showed… I think this difference might exist because inside the cells … is happening.

Survival Guide or Cell Analogy Work Time: Same as above.

Homework: FINISH SURVIVAL GUIDE WRITING

Martian Academy Video

Week of 4/24 to 4/27

Lesson 1
