Mrs. Gall: 6th hour Biology DOCUMENT LINKS- 10/18 NOTES- ZANGLE NOTES- CLASSWORK LIST


 Monday, October 18, 2010. NOTES: Kingdoms of Life, Ecosystems, Overview of BiologyKINGDOMSAnimalia, Plantae, Fungi, Protista, Monera
Animals: bat, rat, reptile, dog, bugs (insects), elephants, turtles, fish, falcon, bird, humans, platypus, zebra, koala, jaguar,
Plants: Venus flytrap, grass, trees, pine tree, white pine, oak tree, birch tree, algae, dogbark tree, weeping willow, pear, apple, corn, tomato, cactus, coffee, grapevines, coca plant (chocolate), poppies, sesame, oats, carrots, lettuce, onion
Fungus: mushroom, mold, slime, yeast,
Protist: amoeba, paramecium, euglena, stentor,
Moneran: Salmonella, E. coli, streptococcus (strep throat),

Not sure? gangrene, malaria, chlamydia,

None of the above: rust

Topics:

Bacteria = Monerans... no nucleus in the cell (DNA is anywhere in cell, very small cells)- strepto, bacillo, coccus

Protista= one- celled organisms, have nuclei, eat/ reproduce, move

btw: bacteria, protists reproduce ASEXUALLY- SIMPLY DIVIDE INTO 2

Fungi= organisms that get nutrition by digesting other living- or dead- things

Plants= organisms "make" their own food: from water, sunlight- sometimes other nutrients. The process is called photosynthesis. Respiration in plants requires carbon dioxide and produces oxygen as a waste product.

Animals= "get" their food. A SPONGE is an animal. A CORAL holds animals. Barnacles and Oysters are animals. They digest food that just happens to land where they are... HERBIVORES eat only plants. CARNIVORES eat only plants. OMNIVORES can eat both plants and animals.


OUR GOAL TODAY: FIELD TRIP OUTSIDE. NO NOTES REQUIRED. EACH STUDENT WILL ATTEMPT TO COLLECT 4 OR MORE DIFFERENT SPECIES OF PLANTS, 2 OR MORE TYPES OF INSECTS, 1 OTHER TYPE OF ANIMAL (VERY SMALL!), 1 OR MORE TYPES OF FUNGUS.

ALSO NOTE: PINE TREE FLOWERS VS OTHER FLOWERS. (gymnosperm vs angiosperm)


BIOLOGY SCAVENGER HUNT DURING CLASSTIME WAS FOLLOWED BY:
Examination and discussion: earthworm and angiosperm flowers: sexual reproduction
Dissection with authentic tools: scalpel, probe, etc: flowers, tree fungus, earthworms, beetle

Makeup work for absent students: Collect and dissect as described above; identify anatomical parts of earthworm and angiosperm flowers involved in sexual reproduction and describe processes in each case; document in writing (photographs are optional; actual artifacts are REQUIRED)

Teacher notes posted on Zangle:

As of Weds. Nov. 3, grades here are current. PLEASE complete workbook activities and turn in ASAP for credit. The final exam will be on Thursday, November 11. If you miss the exam, make arrangements for a makeup by 3pm Friday; see Mrs. Gall at school or email or call. If you are missing non- workbook assignments, you are responsible for meeting with Mrs. Gall before or after school or during your lunch by appointment to get those assignments, then turn them in completed. The FINAL EXAM is open- note; your folder will also be collected for credit. If you received partial credit for an incomplete assignment you may be able to earn more credit; see Mrs. Gall.
On Nov. 4, we will learn about human diseases including viruses, bacterial disease, hereditary disease, and cancers. On November 8, we will examine cells and structures using microscopes, and we will record our observations in words and drawings. On November 10, we will dissect a rotisserie chicken and identify tissues and organs; morphology and function will be discussed. Final exam preparation began on October 28, continued on November 3, and will include a review sheet distributed on November 8.

Dear Students and Parents,

The final exam was given on Thursday, November 11, 2010, during our normal classtime.
The portfolio collection of classwork, as well as completed Buckle Down Workbook assignments completed, were due during the final exam.
As a courtesy to students, I will accept late workbooks and portfolios on Friday, November 12, before school.
All final exam grades and late work assignment grades will be entered between third hour on Friday and Sunday, November 14.
Please contact me if you have questions or concerns.
Thank you,
Mrs. Gall
