G7 Week 07

Last week in science!

Monday, October 14th

Today in science: After receiving The Gift, students had the entire class period to begin working on weeLAB #02 – Brussels sprouts. While some students chose to work sequentially starting with the Translation method, other students chose to begin weeLAB #02 with one of the two currently available Description methods (Flavour School and Dissection). The final weePORT for weeLAB #02 is due on Monday, October 21st.

Homework: All students are required to 1) Make a copy of the “G7: weePORT (template)”, which can be accessed via the Shortcuts section on the right hand side of every SCIENCEsEDiment webpage (just above the Photo of the Week), 2) Place it into their already-shared “weePORTs” folder on Google Drive, and 3) Rename it as “weePORT – 02 – Brussels sprout.”

Tuesday, October 15th (no H period)

Today in science: The beginning of this lesson was used to make sure students were adept at adding new files to their already-created ## – weePORTs folder and renaming them according to our class naming conventions. By the end of this exercise, all students present during the lesson had two properly named Google Documents inside of their shared folder. Dr. M then used the remain class time to 1) show students how to delete one of the two Description rows in the table found in their Method section, and 2) help students answer Question 1 and Question 2 in the Discussion section of their new, Brussels sprout weePORT.

Homework: All students should spend 20 minutes working on their Brussels sprout weePORT.

Homework (H period): All students should spend 20 minutes working on their Brussels sprout weePORT.

B period: After very briefly reviewing Questions 3A-C of weePORT 02, students were introduced to a short research project described in detail on the Notes Portal. Students were given much of the class period to begin working on this project, which is an in-class project and not something that is considered as homework.

Homework (B period): All students should spend 20 minutes working on their Brussels sprout weePORT.
