Below is a downloadable copy and picture of the rubric for the Ecosystems Biome Project. This project will be completed in groups of 3 and is Due Wednesday, May 27.
Research can be done at home and there will be some in class time provided as well.
Using information we have gathered about pollutants over the last few days, you will be creating a 3 section flip book. You will be folding a single sheet of construction paper in half. From there you will make cuts on the cover so you are able to flip open and view the inside. Please see the diagram below.
You may use the notes we took in class or any of the resources in the post below.
Please see the diagram below for specific instructions.
*If you are absent from Saturday school and would like to begin this at home, you may write your information or draw your picture on separate sheet of paper and glue it in when you get to school Monday.
The due date for this is Tuesday the 19th by the end of the day.
Our focus this quarter has been on weather systems. As a final project students are to login to their discovery education account and create a Board (unless otherwise specified).
This board should NOT be a list or have a "listy" format. They should apply all of the knowledge they have acquired on weather systems to write paragraphs that answer the guided questions.
Below you will find links to view both the requirements and the rubric.
Today in class we discussed the nervous system and used the Stroop test to test out our brains. The link for more information on this is HERE -
Below is the image we used FIRST - read the words that are listed. (easy right?)
Next - look at the picture below. Now instead, say the COLOR of the words, but do not read the word, just say the color.
Curious as to why?
When a word's meaning is coupled with distracting information, such as a color, the 2 different regions of the brain are stimulated. The right side decodes the letters and reads the word. The left side analyzes the color. When you are asked to read the color (ACTIVE) rather than read the word (PASSIVE) - the brain becomes conflicted slowing down your response time. Experience has taught us to pay more attention to the meanings of words rather than the colors they are written in.
