mrs ward s classroom policies procedures
Mrs. Ward’s Classroom Policies & Procedures

A review since we have been apart for so long….

when you get to class
When you get to class…
  • Enter quietly
  • Sit down in your assigned seat as quickly as possible.
      • If the desk are moved (which I do frequently based on the day’s activities) find an available seat. This is a free day and I am allowing you to choose your seat.
  • Start on your DO NOW! There should be no talking!
bathroom policy
Bathroom Policy
  • Once a week during science
    • Don’t ask if:
      • You’ve already been this week
      • You don’t have an agenda
      • Mrs. Ward is teaching (aka “on the rock”)
  • Bathroom Policy includes Lockers and Water Fountain Breaks as well
phones music food
Phones, Music, & Food
  • Use some common sense. If I see it, I am going to take it. I do not want to take your things, so please don’t make me. I have let too many people get away with eating and listening to music.
    • Food—I am going to throw it in the trash and it is gone forever.
    • Phone/iPod—You can get it at the end of the day or your parent/guardian can come get it
    • I am going to start finding academic activities that allow you to use your phone technology. I can only do this if students do not abuse this privilege.
dress code
Dress Code
  • Please follow the dress code. It is my responsibility to make sure you are doing so. I do not want to be a “nag” about your shirts and hoodies.
      • You know the dress code. Don’t make me remind you constantly. Is it really that hard to tuck in a shirt? 
transitions group work
Transitions/Group Work
  • Quietly and Quickly…otherwise we will be forced to only do individual work and lectures. How boring is that?
  • Labs…You should be on exceptional behavior.
5 4 3 2 1countdown
  • When you hear me start the 5-4-3-2-1 countdown…
      • EYES ON ME
  • Let’s PRACTICE!
other general guidelines i should not remind you
Other General Guidelines I should not remind you…
  • STAY IN YOUR SEAT. If you need to get up or have a problem, just raise your hand and ask. I am very flexible with your needs.
    • The constant interruptions are making it very difficult to get through the lesson and onto individual and group work.
other general guidelines i should not remind you1
Other General Guidelines I should not remind you…
  • SERIOUSLY…I should not even have to say not to throw things. SERIOUSLY.
  • DO NOT YELL OUT…EVEN if it is related to science class!!!! I want to hear from you, but not when you are calling out.
finally yes finally
FINALLY…Yes, Finally…
  • I dismiss the class, not the bell.
    • Stay in your seats and sit quietly until I dismiss you.
    • I will not write passes if you are late to your next class because you are being held.

introduction to protists
Introduction to Protists

So what is a protist anyway?

a protist is write down the stuff in blue in your science notebook
A protist is…(write down the stuff in blue in your science notebook)
  • Protists belong to the Kingdom Protista, which includesmostlysingle-celled organisms that do not fit into the other kingdoms.

Characteristics of Protists:

  • mostly unicellular, some are multicellular (algae)
  • most live in water (though some live in moist soil or even the human body)
  • ALL are eukaryotic (have a nucleus)
how are they classified
How are they classified?

Protista = the very first

Classification of Protists:

  • how they obtain nutrition

(How they eat!)

  • how they move
we will be studying 4 types of protists
We will be studying 4 types of protists:
  • Amoeba
  • Paramecium
  • Euglena
  • Volvox
  • An amoeba

Moves using “false

feet” or pseudopodia

  • Eats food by surrounding and engulfing it
    • Does not make its own food (heterotroph)
  • Movie of an amoeba eating:


  • Movie of an amoeba moving:


  • Moves using hair-like Cilia
  • Has two nuclei
  • Ingests through a mouth pore
    • Stores food in food vacuole
    • Releases waste through an anal pore
    • Heterotroph like the amoeba
  • Paramecium moving & eating:


  • Characteristics of both plants

& animals

  • Has chloroplasts to produce food through photosynthesis (autotrophic)
    • Has light sensitive eye spot
  • Can also surround & engulf food
  • Has whip-like flagellum for movement
  • Video of Euglena:


  • A type of algae
  • Actually form large spherical (like a ball) colonies of single-celled organisms
    • AS MANY AS 50,000 in one colony!
    • Although they are all individual organisms, they work together to act like one multicellular organism
  • Can digest food (heterotroph) as well as produce their own food through photosynthesis (autotroph)
  • Have flagellafor movement

test corrections due wed
Test Corrections…Due WED!
  • Please make corrections on your test in a different color ink.
  • Turn it in for 10 additional points on your test.
  • I will give students a chance to retake the test in class.
  • Once again, it is due on WEDNESDAY.
