Explain the process of Photosynthesis- Plants are producers; they use the energy from light to make sugar molecules from the atoms of carbon dioxide and water. Plants use these sugars along with minerals from the soil to form fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. These products can be used immediately, incorporated into the cells of a plant as the plant grows, or stored for later use.
Today in Class:
1. Students worked on creating more Study Game Questions and Answers (see Nov. 13 for amounts of each type of question). You should be up to 45 or so at this point.
2. Students who completed their Study Logs and who also studied yesterday with Mrs. Lambrix were eligible to re-take the Cell Structure and Function Quiz. [ If you did not come prepared and did not complete the Study Log, you may still re-take the quiz next Monday at lunch. ]
3. Other students completed their Photosynthesis Summary WS and studied in class.
4. Remember – this was announced multiple times in class during the past 2 weeks:
Trimester Assessment is 11/21/14. This will include Scientific Method notes and all cell and microbiology concepts.
Study Games are due next week 11/19 and 11/20. You will be assigned one of those dates on Monday.
Study Game Q & A will be graded next Monday and Tuesday 11/17 and 11/18. You should have already shown me the 1st 15 questions.
Homework: No HW – except if you are not caught up with your Study Game Q & A, or have missing work….
