G7 Week 16 – S2

Last week in science!

Lesson 1 – Monday, May 10th (Day 21)

Today in science: Students were asked to measure (and record) plant(s) height, make two pistil-focused drawings, do noticings and wonderings, and take a couple of pictures to insert into their Digital Lab Notebook. With any time remaining in the lesson, students had time to continue their preparations for Wednesday’s (C period) or Thursday’s (H period) Structures & Functions quiz.

Homework: Prepare for this week’s Structure/Function plant quiz, which will include the following terms–cotyledon, hypocotyl, radicle, root hairs, roots, stem, and true leaves–as well as all of the flower structures and flower functions. Additional (printable) study resources are available in the Google Science Classroom.

Lesson 2 – Tues/Wed, May 11-12th (Day 22-23)

Today in science: In preparation for the Structures & Functions quiz, students were reminded and shown of all of the resources made available to them in the Google Science Classroom. They also participated in a couple of in-class labelling (and coloring) exercises to help prepare them for the quiz.

Homework: Prepare for this week’s Structure/Function plant quiz, which will include the following terms–cotyledon, hypocotyl, radicle, root hairs, roots, stem, and true leaves–as well as all of the flower structures and flower functions. Additional (printable) study resources are available in the Google Science Classroom.

Lesson 3 – Wed/Thurs, May 12-13th (Day 23-24)

Today in science: At the start of today’s lesson, students completed the Structures & Functions quiz. After completing all four parts, students used the remaining time to measure (and record) their plants, take photos, pollinate their newly opened flowers, and make (and record) noticings and wonderings. A few students even found time to dissect and investigate one of their developing pistils.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Lesson 4 – Friday, May 14th (Day 25)

Today in science:  Students were asked to measure (and record) their plants, make one pistil-focused drawing, take photos for the Digital Lab Notebook, pollinate any newly opened flowers, and make (and record) multiple noticings and wonderings. With any time remaining, students began working on Chapters 3 & 4 of their newly returned Food For Plants packet.

Homework: There is no science homework this weekend, but some students may choose to work on Chapters 3 & 4 of their Food For Plants packet.
