Biology Discussion Notes

Monday 8/18 – Wednesday 8/20


Welcome

WELCOME!

Biology with Ms. Jacobs


Goals for the day

Goals for the Day

  • Get to know each other

  • Make & understand classroom expectations/rules

  • Get excited about Biology! 


Classroom rule s

Classroom Rule(s)

  • Have Respect.

    • For yourself

    • For your classmates

    • For the classroom

    • For the teacher

  • Follow all RHS handbook rules


Question of the day

Question of the Day

Each day in class I will put up a question of the day.

Students will be responsible for writing the question & their best answer.

After each student has answered the question on their own we will discuss it as a class

QODs will be collected before for points!!!


Question of the day1

Question of the Day

What does respect look like to you in the classroom?


Topics for biology

Topics for Biology


Lets start learning names

Lets start learning names!


Information cards goals

Information Cards & Goals

  • Full name

  • Interests

  • Activities you are in or are planning to tryout for (Spring & Fall)

  • 2 Goals for yourself this year

    • What do you want to do, accomplish, or learn?

    • For each goal say what you will do to accomplish this goal.

  • What else should I know about you?


Science autobiography

Science Autobiography

  • What has been your general experience of science inside or outside of school?

    • Did you enjoy it? What did you enjoy?

    • Did you not enjoy it? Why didn’t you enjoy it?

  • What about science/biology interests you?

  • What specifically do you already know/have you talked about the scientific method?

  • What is your experience using microscopes and how comfortable are you with the parts & rules of proper use?


Goals for the day1

Goals for the Day

  • Learn Each others Names

  • Be able to describe 5 of the 10 themes of Biology.

  • Get excited about Biology! 


Question of the day2

Question of the Day

What do you have in common with the plants in our room?

(List as many things as you can think of)


Biology discussion notes

  • Ten Themes of Biology

  • Biological Systems

(How we organize things in biology)


Organize the following from smallest to largest

Organize the following from smallest to LARGEST

  • Organism

  • Cell

  • Population

  • Biome

  • Community

  • Organ Systems

  • Ecosystem

  • Organ

  • Tissue

  • Biosphere


Biology discussion notes

Tissue

Organ

Organ System

Cell s

Organism

  • Ten Themes of Biology

  • Biological Systems

Cells working together

Tissues working together

Organs working together

A living thing


Biology discussion notes

  • Biological Systems – cell, tissue, organ, organ system, organism, population, community, ecosystem, biosphere

Biosphere

Biome

Ecosystem

Community

Population

Organism


Biology discussion notes

2. The Cellular Basis of Life – the cell is the smallest unit of life. All living things are made of cells.


Biology discussion notes

3. Form and Function – the shape of things help that organism to do what it does

(Example: the anteater’s long snout enables it to squeeze in tight places to get food)


Biology discussion notes

4. Reproduction and Inheritance – you inherit similarities from your parents (Example: if nothing else your parents are human and so are you!)


Biology discussion notes

5. Interaction with the Environment – every organism gives off stuff to the environment and every organism takes stuff from the environment (Example: you give off heat and take in food)


Species of the day tibicen pruinosus

Species of the DayTibicenpruinosus


Species of the day cicada tibicen pruinosus

Species of the DayCicada: Tibicenpruinosus

  • What do you know about cicadas based on these 5 themes of biology.


Goals for the day2

Goals for the Day

  • Learn Each others Names

  • Be able to describe ALL 10 themes of Biology.

  • Get excited about Biology! 


Question of the day3

Question of the Day

  • Without looking at your notes from yesterday, try to name the five themes of life we discussed yesterday.


Question of the day4

Question of the Day

  • Without looking at your notes from yesterday, try to name the five themes of life we discussed yesterday.

Biology discussion notes

  • Energy and Life – Every organism needs energy to live.

What happens when an organism runs out of energy?


Biology discussion notes

  • Regulation and Homeostasis

    Homeostasis – the maintenance of a stable internal conditions in spite of changes in the external environment.

    Example: Even though our surrounding temperature is constantly changing our internal temperature (body temperature) stays the same.


Biology discussion notes

8. Adaptation and Evolution – Adaptation is an inherited trait that helps the organism’s ability to survive and reproduce. Evolution is just a change over time.


Biology discussion notes

  • Biology and Society –

  • How does our society affect life and how does our understanding of biology affect our society?

  • Cloning, Stem cell research, environmental issues, hunting, medicine, genetically modified crops


Biology discussion notes

10. Scientific Inquiry – Asking questions, using observations or experiments to find possible answers


Species of the day

Species of the Day:

Cicada Killer!


Species of the day1

Species of the Day:

Cicada Killer:Spheciusspeciosus

What do you know about this cicada killer based on the 10 Themes of Biology?

-Go through each theme (you can number them if you like) and tell me one thing you know about this cicada killer based on each theme). For #10, Scientific inquiry ask a testable question about the cicada killer.


Species of the day2

Species of the Day:

Cicada Killer:Spheciusspeciosus

What do you know about this cicada killer based on the 10 Themes of Biology?

Ex. Biology & Society: Our understanding of the cicada killer wasps could help us to control them at our house or not be too afraid of them at a park.
