April 25

What has been happening to CO2 in our atmosphere for the last 50 years? How do we measure this?
Read together
Measuring CO2.pdf

Make a graph using Numbers from the following data set:
CO2 Data at Mauna Loa.numbers

Answer questions from the Mauna Loa data.


April 12

Continue with lesson 2. Use the link to lesson 2 below.

Continue with answering questions Do questions 12 - 28. You can answer the questions right on the document below.
Lesson 2- Climate Connections after the sub.pages


April 8

Lesson 2
Past Climate variation
Link to lesson 2

Answer all questions directly on the worksheet as you work through the information and graphs.
Lesson 2- Climate Connections w Sub.pdf

Make it as far as you can. Please feel free to collaborate with a partner. Not completing any of these questions will result in no credit for the day.

April 6


We will begin the unit by taking a survey. Don't worry if you don't understand anything because this is just trying to probe what you know before we do anything.

Another termite tragedy!!! They died again... Not sure why... but we cannot get more at this point. So... we will transition to our next lab which will be fun!!

Complete probe Giant Tree Probe

What makes plants grow large and strong?
We will design a testable question and begin planning the procedure. You will work with your partner on google docs to write the procedure and use graph paper to design your data table.

What you should have ready for next class:
Your question and hypothesis completed. Have a rough draft of your procedure on google docs.



Thursday, September 23, 2010

What we did in class:
Explored termite behavior
Developed a testable question about termites

What you should have ready for class:
Make sure you are all caught up. Mid quarter grades next week.



Tuesday, September 21, 2010

What we did in class:
Many needed to rewrite their lab reports. The rest will work on linear measurement. You need to be able to measure accurately in cm. Begin work on phenomenal circle activity.

What you should have ready for class:
If your lab report rewrite is not complete, it must be done for next class.

Friday, September 16, 2010
What we did in class:
Outdoor fun OR complete lab report

What you should have ready for next class:
Complete lab report if not done.



Wednesday, September 14, 2010
What we did in class:
We reviewed the format for a lab report. Students took notes in science notebooks.
Worked on typing up final lab report for poppers.

What you should have ready for next class:
Those that have their lab reports passed in at the beginning of class can participate in a fun, field event. Outside. Those that are not done will stay inside to complete their lab report.

Monday, September 12, 2010
What we did in class:
Habits of Mind
What is a data table? Why use it? Make one for your data
We reviewed the "rules of graphing". Notes are in your science notebooks.
Why graph data? Make graph of your data
Use data to make a claim or statement about poppers.

What you should have ready for next class:
Typed, final draft of lab write-up
