Objective: Explain that living systems, including photosynthesis, cellular respiration & the carbon cycle, obey the laws of Conservation of Mass & Energy.
This week in class we are exploring how Matter and Energy flows through living systems — specifically in the carbon cycle.
Monday students completed one of the following assignments in OneNote (based on Mid Year Scrimmage Data)
- 8.L.18.4 Conservation of Mass/Energy Guided Notes
- CPALMS original tutorial – Conservation of Mass & Energy
Tuesday/Wednesday students worked on carbon cycle station labs. We will wrap these up first thing on Thursday.
Friday we will have a short quiz on these benchmarks. Students should make sure they review this material throughout the week.
