G7 Week 03

Friday, September 23rd – F & H periods

Today in science: F & H period students completed the Dissection Kit quiz at the beginning of the class period. They were then asked to follow the KRYDDA/VÄXER germination protocol so that their their seed germination investigation was set up before leaving the classroom. This included taking (or drawing) pictures and recording extensive written observations of the dried seeds before putting them in the KRYDDA/VÄXER growing apparatus.

Homework: F & H period students have been asked to find and print an image of the KRYDDA/VÄXER growing apparatus to put into the “Methods” section of Investigation #1 of their lab notebook. Many students have yet to do this. Those who have already done so do not have any science homework over the weekend, so go outdoors and explore your world!!!

Thursday, September 22nd – All periods

Today in science: 

F & H periods: Students continued preparing their lab notebooks for the upcoming investigation of the germination of two different species of seeds, peas and beans. This included writing the purpose, hypothesis, predictions, and two of the three parts of the methods section (materials and apparatus). Students also received a printed version of the “KRYDDA/VÄXER germination protocol” to glue into their lab notebooks.

Homework: In addition to preparing for this week’s Dissection Kit quiz, A period students have been asked to find and print an image of the KRYDDA/VÄXER growing apparatus to put into the “Methods” section of Investigation #1 of their lab notebook.

A period: Students completed the Dissection Kit quiz at the beginning of the class period. They were then asked to follow the KRYDDA/VÄXER germination protocol so that their their seed germination investigation was set up before leaving the classroom.

Homework: A period students have been asked to find and print an image of the KRYDDA/VÄXER growing apparatus to put into the “Methods” section of Investigation #1 of their lab notebook. Some students have yet to do this. Those who have already done so do not have any science homework over the weekend, so go outdoors and explore your world!!!

Wednesday, September 21st – A & H periods

Today in science: 

A period: Students continued preparing their lab notebooks for the upcoming investigation of the germination of two different species of seeds, peas and beans. A period finished writing the purpose, hypothesis, predictions, and two of the three parts of the methods section (materials and apparatus). They then were given a brief introduction to the growing chamber we will use for this investigation.

Homework: In addition to preparing for this week’s Dissection Kit quiz, A period students have been asked to find and print an image of the KRYDDA/VÄXER growing apparatus to put into the “Methods” section of Investigation #1 of their lab notebook.

H period: After collecting the graphing homework, Dr. Merritt asked H period students to set up their Classroom Science Binders by inserting a (blank) table of contents document and then locating and organizing some of last week’s key assignments. He also introduced students to the Missing In Action or “MIA” form. Finally, the class began their first ‘official’ science investigation by preparing page 2 of their lab/field notebooks and updating their table of contents.

Homework: All periods should also be preparing for this week’s Dissection Kit quiz, which was discussed in class and is further explained in the homework entry for Monday, September 12th.
