(Comp Sci) Dec. 14- Carbon Cycle

Today in class students had a quick checkpoint on the parts of a cell – scores are updated already in Focus.

We then did a quick lesson on Carbon Cycle and Law of Conservation of Matter/Energy . Students need to complete the “We Do” questions for Home Learning.

Home Learning: 

  • Complete “We Do” left side questions (Carbon Cycle) 

  • Review notes on Photosynthesis/Cell Respiration, Cell Organelles, and Carbon Cycle.  Quiz next week! 

  • PENDA due Sunday 

(Comp. Sci) Dec. 12- Cell Structure Throwback Lesson

WEDNESDAY Dec. 20th is the end of the 2nd 9 weeks.

Today students had a QUICK throwback lesson on the structure and function of the parts of a cell.  Due to the shortened class periods, students are to complete the left side “you do” questions for home learning.

I collected the following assignments today:

  • Mid Year Scrimmage Review
  • Properties of Matter Test corrections.

I also returned the “Modeling Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration” assignment for students to revise as an additional safety net before the end of the 9 weeks.  Revisions are due next class.
