Cells – An Introduction

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

Science – Discrepant Events Involving Heat

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.
