Monday-Wednesday, May 6-8th
Today in science: All of our class time was devoted to seed experiment preparations. More specifically, extended attention was paid to collecting the materials needed to performing each students’ Brassica rapa (or other seed type) experiment. During this collection activity, if/when students made any changes to either their materials or procedure, they needed to update these sections in their Seed Lab Report to reflect the changes.
Homework: There is no science homework tonight.
Thursday-Friday, May 9-10th
Today in science: All of our class time was devoted to seed experiment preparations, as well as seed experiment execution. Much of the teacher’s emphasis was on the need for students to record a number of things in their Lab Notebook. These ‘things’ included 1) a record of the responding variable in the designated data table, 2) a record of the controlling variables in the designated data tables, 3) any changes made to the Materials, 4) any changes made to the Procedure, 5) any questions–or wonderings–that suddenly arise during the experiment, 6) any ‘Ah ha!’ moments or thoughts, and 7) anything strange or weird events that make you say, ‘Hmmm.’
Homework: There is no science homework this weekend.
