Good Mduring our orning to you all. Hope you had a great weekend. The weather can get a little tricky for some of the little critters just hatching.

Some species of turtle are hatching, be aware that touching them can be harmful (turtles may carry germs like Salmonella that can make people sick). This week I have three assignments for you. Try each ...

Keep up the great work! Please email me if you have any questions. ~Mrs D.

 

April 20-24th 

Good Morning to all! I want to wish everyone a Happy Earth Day on April 22nd and celebrating Arbor Day on April 24th (last Friday in April for Massachusetts). This week there are no notes for us to enter into our INs. I've provided two power points as a resource for you to review. These power points will help you answer the Ecosystem worksheet #3. Click here for the Ecosystem Wkst #3. The Ecosystem worksheet #3 and the DN4.24 ( click here for DN 4.24 Assessare the only assignments due this week. Have a great week and as always keep  well and stay in touch. 

Bonus- Can anyone find the word on the ecosystem worksheet that we have tried to avoid saying?  It's one from our WLS poster!

April 6th to April 10th, 2020

Good Evening. Hope everyone had a good weekend and you're feeling like doing some exploring. We are entering our 4th week of remote learning and this week will be a great week to become an Ecologists, where one studies the organisms and how they interact with other organisms and the environment they live in. I'd like to remind all my students that in the beginning of the year we learned about living organisms and how they interacted with the non-living parts of the environment. Many of those same concepts will be reinfornced in this weeks lessons. Terms to be aware of are as follows; community, ecosystem, predation, living space, habitat, autotroph, heterotroph, population, genus, species, biosphere, mimicry, host parasite, mutualistic relationship, symbiosis, and a few others.

Good Afternoon - Grade 7 Students & Parents,

Hope all of you are doing well. I wanted to share with you where my thoughts are in continuing our studies of science. My school website, Google classroom, and e-mail will be the best way to keep active with your Science studies. 

1. I'll post the practice assignment on the website calendar and put a due date so that we can keep tract of what we need to practice. 

2. I'll use G.classroom to set up a weekly meeting for each block to help support students. Each weekly meeting will have its own link when I send you an invitation. Meeting will have a date, start time, and end time. 

3. Email is a great way to keep the lines of communication open. I'll check it daily and should be able to respond within 24 hours or sooner. 

I hope to see you all soon via google meet. Keep well.

Mrs Drobiak

Provide the date and the assignment #.  The following material will allow you to stay sharp and focussed on your studies in Genetics. E-mail if you have any questions. 

 Monday 3.16.2020         Assignment #1

Problem A: Draw a Punnett Square for a (Tt)Heterozygous tall plant X with a (tt)homozygous short plant cross. If T codes for tall pea plant stems and t codes for short pea plant stems, what percentage of the offspring would you expect to have each phenotype?

Draw the punnett square, parent alleles on the outside, offspring on the inside of the square, list genotypes and phenotypes, CSA probability. 

 

 

 

We have a busy year ahead of us with lots of new and exciting things to learn in science, new people to meet, and lots of exploratory lessons/activities to work on.  I am looking forward to a very interesting year with each and everyone of you!  

Topics that will be covered in science this year include: Biology, chemistry, Anatomy, Physics, Genetics, Environmental Science, and Microbiology

Students will be able to...

Observe living organisms using various laboratory tools, follow the steps to the scientific method to write a formal report, and identify life science concepts to be familiar with lab techniques. Think SCIENCE!

Students and parents have access to homework assignments by using the Navigation Bar above or the Homepage worksheets tab on the left. Homework is typically given on Monday and due on Friday each week.

Please feel free to contact me at mdrobiak@shschools.com. I will try to respond within 48 hours.
