Wow! I cannot believe that this school year is almost over. Students are now working on our final chapter in the curriculum. We will be furthering our understanding of common cycles within our environments such as photosynthesis, cellular respiration, and the carbon cycle! After completing this unit we will review material from the course of the year to prepare ourselves for our end of course exam which will happen the second week of May!
It will be very important that you utilize this webpage for weekly agenda information, study tools, important due dates, and access to PDF files of chapter notes and presentations.
Weekly assignments will be posted on the calendar below each Monday for the week ahead. If you are absent or want a preview of topics/activities that will be covered, click the link “Weekly Agenda.” Lessons covered and activities are subject to change and will be updated accordingly.
Life science can be a challenging subject with the extensive vocabulary that is involved. Quizlet is an online application that is a great study resource for students. Online flashcards, interactive games and practice quizzes are available through this application and can be accessed for any smart device/tablet. Each student has created an account to access each chapter's vocabulary for practice at home. If a student takes the practice test prior to the day of the test and earns an 80 or higher, the student will receive 10 points extra credit for that particular chapter's test. Vocabulary is due the day we take the chapter’s vocabulary test. Vocabulary must be hand-written for credit.
Prezi Presentations - All content will be presented through Prezi. A link will be posted for each chapter’s presentation and students are encouraged to utilize this presentation at home for study purposes, to copy notes when they are absent and miss a lesson, or have lost their notes and need to re-copy information.
