Today in science: Students had to complete at least two tasks today. First, they had to take two photos – one image showing the veins present of a mature leaf and one image showing a close-up view of either an open flower OR, if no open flowers are present, a mature flower bud. Second, measure and record the height (in cm) of all existing plants and calculate the average (all measurements and calculations should be recorded in the digital journal).

Homework: Those students who wish to are strongly encouraged to begin revising one (or both!) of the investigations discussed in detail in today’s science class.

A/F period – Day 15
G period – Day 14

A period: Dr. Merritt began the period by offering students a number of bar graphing ‘tips’ (suggestions). Students then had the rest of the class period to work on revisions to either INV#0 or INV#1 (or both!).

G period: On the heels of receiving their midterm academic and effort grades (and teacher comments) Dr. Merritt reviewed the weighting scheme of the different assignment types that make up the academic grade. During this discussion, Dr. Merritt made some important announcements about opportunities for students to revise both INV#0 (the Writing Instrument investigation) and INV#1 (the Garlic investigation). Among other announcements, Dr. Merritt said that all investigation revisions are due by Monday, December 11.

Homework: Those students who wish to are strongly encouraged to begin revising one (or both!) of the investigations discussed in detail in today’s science class.

A/F period – Day 13
G period – Day 12

Today in science: Students had at least three tasks to complete in class today. First, they had to take two photos – one level view and one close-up view of a cluster of flower buds. Second, measure and record the height (in cm) of all existing plants and calculate the average (all measurements and calculations should be recorded in the digital journal). Third, be sure that the Day 13 (A/F period) or Day 12 (G period) entry is formatted properly in the WFP Digital Journal.

Homework: Students need to add two new vocabulary words to their WFP Digital Glossary: root hairs and flower buds. To see all of last week’s vocabulary words, see G7 Week 11.
