Today in Class:
1.You created (or should have used the first 12-15 minutes- Bell Ringer time to create) 3 more Lincs cards. 1 card for Control Experiment, 2 cards for the Independent Variable . The Independent Variable description is 4 points- so I stated to break up that definition for 2 cards. Remember, the definitions and descriptions for all science terms are on my “Notes for the Unit” on this Blog.
2. Next — we started the Gum Experiment. I described the Procedure and you answered questions about the jobs or roles that students will need to take as they complete this lab. After that, you created an X and Y axis, with labels, title, heading, numbers/minutes, to prepare for the lab tomorrow.
3. I passed back the corrected Off Target Lab. Most of you performed well on that lab and on the Scientific Method WS #1 paper. These grades were recorded on the Portal over the weekend.
Homework: If you did not bring in your gum for the gum lab yet…
Bring an unopened pack (5+pieces) of gum – the type you volunteered to bring to class by Tuesday) Types include: Fruit, Bubble Gum, Mint, Sugar Free (any type), Cinnamon. (we do not need every student to bring a pack of gum…). 7th Hour: see if you can bring in a pack of gum,… you should be all caught up with the other classes now ….
