Homeroom went to the computer lab for benchmark testing.

The Tuesday schedule looks like this: AM test groups are Alden- Lassiter Bldg 1 Rm 19, Allison Bldg 1 rm22, Cooper Bldg 10, rm 23, and McMurry Bldg 6 rm 6. 1st period 9:20am- 11:25am testing (you will be released to your 3rd period class.)

EVERYONE else is on a normal day!


7th grade life science

Although we took the Civics benchmark test today, Periods 1 and 3 turned in their chapter work on cells that was assigned yesterday.

Don't forget, this is due FRIDAY! Begin adding the Staining and microscopy lab to the COW. Title: Preparing a stained cell, animal and plant. Hypothesis: If cells are hard to see under normal light, then correctly staining them with dye will make them easier to see. Procedures: You have these for both the onion and cheek cell. Data: Draw your onion cell, Cheek cell, and living organism under 100x, color them. Make sure you label the visible parts. Conclusion: DRAW YOU OWN either supporting or refuting the hypothesis. Writing space:Discuss the similarities and differences you saw when looking at the stained cells under the microscope. What were the main differences between the onion cell and cheek cell? Describe what you were thinking when you looked at your living specimen.

COW LAB report Due Friday, November 15th, 2013

Homework: TPS You Be the Judge. DUE: Thursday November 14th, 2013

Begin reading the unit Characteristics of the Cell. Be prepared for a discussion on Tuesday or have a consequence.

Read and summarize using Animal cells vs plant cells. Read the article about animal and plant cells and then use the graphic organizer to note the similarities and differences. DUE: Wednesday November 13th, 2013.

Complete the manipulative History of Cell Theory Timeline. Read through this timeline and then cut out each box and glue it in order from the first events in the discovery of the cell to the last. DUE: Friday, November 15th, 2013.

We have not managed to finish the video in class. Students should watch the remaining tie in The Wacky World of Cell Theory.

Turn in: Chapter 1 lesson 2 questions

Today in 8th grade classes all students turned in their test study guides and then took the test over atomic theory.

Homework: TIPS Bonding Power. DUE: Thursday November 14th, 2013

Read Electrons. Read this section and be prepared for a class discussion Wednesday. (discuss or have a consequence.) Complete the ODD numbered chapter questions on pages 330-332. Including #1 & 3 under Applying your knowledge DUE: Friday, November 15th, 2013.
