G7 Week 15 – S2

Monday-Friday, May 22-26th – All periods

Today in science: Students received paper copies of the final project packets on Monday. PDF versions of these packets can be accessed through the links below. Some links to reliable sources of information to help students complete the pages found in both packets is available HERE.

Packet 1“What Am I?” (Google Doc version available on Monday)

Known ERRORS in the “What Am I?” packet…

Page 10 – Question 3b should read: “What is the mass of the microbes in your body?”
Page 10 – Question 3c should read: “What is the mass of your brain?”
Page 10 – Question 3d should read: “What is the mass of your kidney?”

Packet 2“Where Do I Come From?” (Google Doc version available on Monday)

Known ERRORS in the “Where Do I Come From?” packet…

None (yet!) 🙂

At the beginning of Monday’s class, Dr. M tried to help students understand how many packet pages need to be completed each day in order to finish the two packets by the final due date: Thursday, June 1st. For those students who wish to put in a small amount of time each day, INCLUDING weekends, you should aim to complete 2.0 pages per day. For those students who wish to put in a small amount of time each day, but NOT including weekends, you should aim to complete 2.5-3.0 pages per day.

While the two packets constitute 75% of the final project grade, students should keep in mind that the remaining 25% of the final project grade is for the highly creative component of the final project–for example, a children’s book, a short video, a podcast, etc.

Homework: Students should be working on one (or more) of the three components of their final project: 1) the “What Am I?” packet, 2) the “Where Do I Come From?” packet, and/or 3) the creative component of the final project.
