Cells & Homeostasis: Environmental Science Center Info Session

We spent the class period in the library today preparing for the field trip to Seahurst Park.  Christine and Jarrett from the Environmental Science Center met with the students.  Students completed a questionnaire designed to help ESC prepare for the trip.  Then they divided into two groups and competed against each other in “The Algae Game.”


Matter, Atomic Structure, and Bonding: Models of the Atom

Chapter 3 began with a historical study of models of the atom.  The Lesson 11 PowerPoint provides key vocabulary around the components of the atom (proton, electron, neutron, and nucleus).  To go along with the Lesson 11 Worksheet, students also received a handout explaining the five models of the atom.  Students also received a copy of the Periodic Table for reference.  For homework, students should complete questions 1-5 from the end of Lesson 11 in the textbook.
