I will try to remember to open up a Quizizz at 5 pm each evening and 8 am Saturday morning (by special request). Check here on the weebly for the code for each session.
In class today students discussed the parts of the circulatory system and the components of blood. We spent more time researching information.
Homework: How does blood move through the cardiovascular system? (There's 2 loops, why?)
What are the parts of the heart?
In class today students researched details about the circulatory system.
Homework: What are the components of blood? What are the parts of the circulatory system?
I will start this game at about 4:05 depending on how many are signing in... 006261
In class today students wrapped up any last minute notes on the reproductive system. We played quizizz to review for the QUIZ on Monday.
Homework: Study for the upcoming quiz on the reproductive system. I will try to post a quizizz game number here on the weebly Saturday at noon, and Sunday at 4 pm if you would like to join a game and review for the quiz. I will start the game about 5 minutes after I post the login number. Have not tried this before. Let's see if it works!
In class today, we strengthened our notes about the human reproductive system. We will quiz on Monday.
Homework: Catch up any vocabulary not defined as of today:
cervix menstruation testosterone zygote
eggs ovulation fertilization embryo
estrogen uterus fetus
fallopian tubes semen testes
menstrual cycle sperm ovary
In class today students received feedback on their homework from last night and continued to study out the structures and functions of the reproductive system.
Homework: Quiz Monday
List the structures and functions of the reproductive system.
fallopian tube scrotum
Answers to the Science Detective Reproductive System article in class:
1c. False - it is a zygote
2. d. none of the above
sentence number 4
3. c. progresses
4. mitosis vs. meiosis
cell is cloned, identical to parent cell DNA is slightly rearranged b/c of cross over
1 DNA copy and 1 cell division 1 DNA copy and 2 cell divisions
46 chromosomes 23 chromosomes
diploid, somatic cells for body haploid, gamete cells for reproduction
5. Reproduction is the process living organisms use to produce more of their own kind. Most eukaryotes require a male and female of the species to provide DNA in gametes, along with the structures to combine the cells in fertilization and a means to provide that the offspring reach birth.
6. Female fish may lay eggs in a nest of some kind in water which allows the male fish to swim by and spray sperm over them for fertilization, all of which occurs external to the fish's body.
7. Consider the impact of clean water, air, available nutritious food, and shelter from predators and inclement weather on a developing body. Even on an adult body, the stresses of famine (lack of food), water borne disease (bacteria and parasites in water can make you very sick), too much food and not enough exercise (humans), can shorten a life span.
Today in class students worked in groups on completing Brain Pops and articles about the male and female human reproductive systems.
Homework: Describe the steps of semen production and ovulation. You may want to use the Activity page from Brain Pop as an organizer.
