We have been studying cell theory and the cells of the human body. Today the students will be reviewing their material alongside Bill Nye. This will help them review for their quiz next week.
This assignment is a personal research assignment. You will go online to discovery education, open the “science techbook”, “investigating cells”, “concept 3.2 cell theory”, to gather information, take notes (in Chicago style), and answer the essential questions at this link. You will hand in all your notes, your official responses and a rubric filled out to show you self-assessment of your assignment.
Today we are going to introduce ourselves to cells. To get started we will watch some videos (some in virtual reality), do some online vocabulary exercises, read some material from our Science text book, and also practice labeling some animal and plant cells.
Watch this video here for an introduction on the parts of a cell

Today we are talking about fossil fuels as part of the rock cycle and the Earth’s crust. Check out the assigned work from class and the video below.
Here is the mindmap from our class conversation prior to research.
We have been studying the Earth’s Crust and the drift of tectonic plates. Today we are watching a documentary on the deepest place on Earth.

Today we are observing a Science experiment online. To do this you will start by creating your Science exit slip. You will watch the first 30 seconds of the video below and then complete your “What I already know” and “hypothesis” sections. Then you will watch the rest of the video before completing your “observations” and “conclusion”.
For each of the experiments students are to create an exit slip that has:
- What I already know (or what I think) about this is…
- My hypothesis is that…because…
- My observations about the experiment are…
- In conclusion:
- revisit hypothesis
- explain observations
- what I learned
Still need some help explaining this one? Watch the video below for more explanation.
Today we are going to measure how temperature relates to the change of state of matter. To do this we will use ice and a hotplate to measure as we heat the substance.
Here are the materials used in this lesson:
Check out this video of dry ice for an example of a matter changing directly from solid to gas.
