SCIENCE

Mrs. Gall, Room 310 A

1.Hello!

2.Buzz or Book

3. Due Today: “End of Quarter Learning Summary” (handout)

4.Discuss DO NOW: Which is your favorite way to learn about Science? Think of a project you can do to show mastery of the first unit of Buzz science for your level.

“end of quarter” question:

Describe the periodic table of the elements. How many elements are there? Who first developed the periodic table? What do the numbers stand for?

The periodic table is a chart that lists the elements in order and organized into families. There are 103 elements. Dmitri Mendeleev developed the chart in the 1800’s. Each atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus of that element’s atoms.

“end of quarter” question:

Compare days, seasons, and years. How does the position of the Earth and its motion cause each of these?

(answer: Earth’s rotation on its axis results in changing days. Its revolution around the Sun results in years. The tilt of its axis as it revolves around the sun results in seasons.)

Any format: pictures, words, presentation, etc.

Show the main ideas of the first unit of BUZZ:

10 or more vocabulary words

1 or more diagrams, charts or graphs

DUE THIS WEEK: By or before Friday.

1. According to the graph, the prairie dog population was the largest in :(C) 1995

2. In general, (H) If birth rate > death rate, population size increases.

3. A freshwater lake has muddy bottom, which is home to different types of algae and other organisms. Many species of fish feed on the algae. An ABIOTIC factor in this ecosystem is (A) the temperature of the water.

4.Although three different bird species all live in the same trees in an area, competition between the birds rarely occurs. The most likely explanation for this lack of competition is that these birds (F) occupy different niches.

5. During primary succession, a typical pioneer species is (B) lichen.

6. If both brown and black squirrels eat acorns, they will compete for the acorns. Either one will eat more, causing the other species to die off over time, or

6. If both brown and black squirrels eat acorns, they will compete for the acorns. Either: one will eat more, causing the other species to die off over time, or both species will establish their own niches, so that they can share the acorns. For example, brown squirrels may gather acorns from the soil, while black ones pull acorns off the tree branches.

1. Hello!

2. Buzz or Group (then switch)

- Group Lab (pairs) plant a soybean for germination; student volunteer will teach in each class session

4. Discuss Do Now: How and why can we learn about soybean growth?

1. Hello!

2. Summarize a story from “Soy News.” Write 1-2 paragraphs.

3. Work toward learning target (Buzz or book)

4. Do Now: What is your current learning target? When do you plan to take the quiz on Buzz? What is your next learning target?

1. Hello!

2. Video: Einstein’s Big Ideas (parts 1-8, YouTube) (14 minutes of video; focus on comparing the 3 segments and critique of the video)

3. Discuss Do Now: (label your MOVIE ANALYSIS handout with your name, date and hour)
