G7 Week 08 – S2

Last week in science!

Monday, March 18th

Today in science: Students received three 1-page teacher evaluations of work completed in their lab notebooks during the Brassica rapa (plants) unit. These evaluations covered the following investigations: 1) Brassica observations & drawings, 2) Brassica flower dissection, and 3) Brassica pistil dissection. With each evaluation, students not only had the opportunity to see Dr. Merritt’s assessment of their work, but they also had the chance to self-evaluate this same work to see if they agreed (or disagreed) with Dr. Merritt’s marks/scores/grades. At the end of the lesson, students gave all three evaluations back to Dr. M along with their Power Plant Packet (Chapters 3 & 4 were both due today).

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Tuesday-Wednesday, March 19-20th

Today in science: After handing out midterm grade reports and reviewing how students’ science grades are determined, students were asked to finish their Brassica growth graphs (students began creating these line graphs during last Thursday’s science lesson). In addition to a single (colored) line on the graph representing each plant (A, B, C, D), students were also asked to create four ‘zones’ representing the known stages of Brassica rapa plant’s life: Germination & emergence, Growth & development, Flowering & Reproduction, and Post-Pollination.

Homework: If a student did not complete and turn in their line graph by the end of the science lesson, they have been asked to finish the line graph at home so that it is ready to give to Dr. M by the start of Thursday’s science lesson.
