Today in class many students completed their group Cell Project. Tomorrow, the rest of the team will be completing their projects, while those who have finished will be completing review work about cells or finishing another learning activity.
Today in class students worked on their cell project - a very helpful tool to learn about the functions of those cell organelles. These are due before we track out.
Today in class students received the Cell Project instructions and rubric. It should not take more than 2 days of good class work with your group to complete the analogy between a cell and another system of your choice (for example: a factory).
Today in class students worked to understand more about plant and animal cells, organelles and functions, photosynthesis, cell respiration, and mitosis/meiosis.
Today in class students discussed what they have learned over the past two days that was new to them about cells. We continued to explore the structures and functions of cells and organelles inside the cells. We have some Discovery Education video clips on a choice board in the google classroom to add to our learning options. Every option includes creating some sort of product to study later.
Today in class students had a lot more choices of activities for their group to choose from and learn about plant and animal cells. Most students made good progress!
Today in class students worked together on tasks to learn about plant and animal cells. There is a nice website/app called icell that is useful for the diagrams most students worked with today.
Today in class students continued to build their vocabulary and write notes about plant and animal cells.
Today in class students completed the Protist Test. When finished, they began to read and take notes about plant and animal cells which is part two of our unit about cells.
Today in class students reviewed the correct answers to yesterday's quiz, and got another work day with their groups to learn a bit more about protists in preparation for the upcoming test.
