G7 Week 07

Thursday-Friday, October 19-20th (Guest Teacher)

Today in science: Dr. Merritt was away attending a work-related conference in Italy. After taking their Dissection Kit (Functions) quiz, students were asked to hand in their final lab reports to the guest teacher. They then watched–or in the case of A period, continued watching–the “Traveling” episode (Episode 1) of the BBC’s The Private Life of Plants. During this video, students were asked to keep notes in which, every 5 minutes or so, they wrote answers to a simple question: What abilities have you just seen in a plant (or group of plants) that you think is really interesting?

Homework: There is no science homework this weekend.
