G7 Week 18

Last week in science!

Monday, January 21st – Day 7

Today in science: The two main themes for today’s lesson were “observation and description” and “growth and development.” Before the end of the lesson, students were asked to complete the following tasks:

1. Prepare a blank, right-sided page in your Lab Notebook for a new investigation titled, “Brassica rapa Observations & Drawings.”

2. Update your Lab Notebook’s Table of Contents.

3. Measure the height of your plants (in cm) and record that data in your growth table. Take a photo of that growth table with your phone or iPad, upload it to your “Science” folder on your TASIS Google Drive, and rename it as, “WFP growth table – 2010-01-21“.

4. In one of the four quadrant-styled drawing spaces created in your Lab Notebook, make a drawing of one of your plants according to the following criteria: realistic (e.g., use techniques such as color and/or shading), label all know parts, estimate scale (1x, 2x, 3x, etc.), include date (e.g., 2019/01/21) and day (e.g., Day 7).

Homework: Students have been asked to use the SCIENCEsEDiment Glossary pages to define 6 seed-related vocabulary terms found on the back of the Week 2 Weekly Reading, “Getting to Know Seeds”.

Tuesday-Wednesday, January 22nd-23rd – Days 8-9

Today in science: The two main themes for today’s lesson were “observation and description” and “growth and development.” At the start of the lesson, Dr. M collected the Week 2 Weekly Reading homework assignment, but then returned them to students–stamped with the word, “Timely,” in red–so that they can use the paper to prepare for Friday’s reading quiz. Students will be asked to give these stamped papers back to Dr. M at the conclusion of Friday’s reading quiz. In the time remaining, which was most of the 60 minutes, students were asked to complete the following tasks:

1. Measure the height of your plants (in cm) and record that data in your growth table.

2. Take a photo of the growth table with your phone or iPad, upload it to your “Science” folder on your TASIS Google Drive, and rename it as, for example, “WFP growth table – 2010-01-22” or “WFP growth table – 2010-01-23”.

3. Update your Lab Notebook’s Table of Contents.

4. Make 1-2 observational drawings of your plants in the quadrant spaces created within your Lab Notebook.

Homework: Students have been asked to use the SCIENCEsEDiment Glossary pages to define 6 seed-related vocabulary terms found on the back of the Week 2 Weekly Reading, “Getting to Know Seeds”.
