G7 Week 18 – S2

Last week in science!

Lesson 1 – Monday, May 24th (Day 35)

Today in science (C & H period): After cleaning out their mailboxes and handing in their Food For Plants packets, students had time to finish their Pistil Dissections, work on their Food For Plants packet, and update their Lab Notebook table of contents. At the end of the lesson, Dr. M asked all students to leave their Lab Notebook in their classroom mailboxes for checking/grading.

Homework: Students were reminded that all of their formatted (i.e., scaled/sized/cropped) Pistil Dissection photos need to be printed at home and brought with them to their next science class. Dr. Merritt will NOT be able to print photos for students and there can be no extended deadline for this assignment. If students do not currently have a functioning printer at home, then they should make time to use one of the school printers either in the school Library or in the Belvedere common room.

Lesson 2 – Wednesday, May 26th (Day 37)

Today in science (C & H period): After inserting their (printed, formatted) pistil dissection photos into their Lab Notebook, students reviewed some of their past (graded) work left in their mailboxes.

Homework:

Lesson 3 – Thursday, May 27th (Day 38)

Today in science (H period only): This is H period’s final science class! In celebration of their final science class of the year, students were asked to harvest their still-maturing seed pods from their ageing (dying!) parent plants. This process also involved separating and returning all wooden stakes and green tying wires to the teacher, examining the drying roots in the soil, and returning the plant ‘detritus’ and  soil to the TASIS composting area.
