G7 Week 11 – S2

Friday, April 28th – F & H period

Today in science: When finished with the two mind maps from the ES9 and USE books, students began making a diagram of a single strand (piece) of DNA. On this diagram, students need to accurately label the following 7 terms: DNA, chromosome, gene, sugar (or “ribose”), phosphate group, base(s) (or “base pair(s)”), and nucleotide (or “nucleotides”).

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

A period: When finished with the two mind maps from the ES9 and USE books, students began making a diagram of a single strand (piece) of DNA. On this diagram, students need to accurately label the following 7 terms: DNA, chromosome, gene, sugar (or “ribose”), phosphate group, base(s) (or “base pair(s)”), and nucleotide (or “nucleotides”).

F & H periods: Using Exploring Science book 9 and the Usborne Science Encyclopedia, students were asked to continue making a concept (mind) map with “DNA” set as the central feature of the map.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Wednesday, April 26th – A & H period

Today in science:

H period: Using only the Exploring Science books (7, 8, & 9) students were asked to begin making a concept (mind) map with “DNA” set as the central feature of the map. Students turned in their map before leaving class, not for a grade, but so that it could be read by Dr. Merritt, who was looking to see what kind(s) of relationships were mapped by the students.

Monday, April 24th – All periods

Today in science: Parts of today’s science class was used for getting organized. For example, students were asked to check their Classroom Science Binders for both completeness and sequence. They were also asked to order their assignments–through the use of page numbers–according to the sequence articulated within the table of contents.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.
