We dissected owl pellets today to see a result of energy transfer. The students did a wonderful job thus far! We will finish the lab tomorrow! No homework tonight.
9/26/2016
We completed our biome projects and presentations in class today! We will go further and discuss and investigate ecosystems in biomes and the transfer of energy that occurs throughout these biomes. Please follow the homework posted for the week of 9/26/2016 to prepare for science this upcoming week. Tomorrow we will evaluate ourselves with a short 10 item assessment regarding basic biome information. There is a study guide in the "2016 Biome Folder" at the bottom of this webpage. As always, create your own study guide and submit before the assessment tomorrow and earn 5 extra credit points on this assessment.
Biome PROJECT
We are currently working on biome projects in class. Each student is assigned a biome and group. Each group must research their biomes and create a presentation that displays all information from project worksheets including a group Biome flyer and an individual organism flyer.

These flyers may be created on google slides and inserted into the presentation.

The presentations will not begin until Wednesday, September 21, 2016.
EXTRA CREDIT OPPORTUNITY!!
 DONATE a BOX of TISSUES and/or a BOTTLE of HAND SANITIZER for EXTRA CREDIT!

"What can a teen do to go GREEN?"



  • Eat out Less -  A lot of energy has gone into creating your food, and for the most part, restaurant-food isn’t made in a sustainable way.
  • Eat Less Meat - Especially if you’re going to eat out, reduce the meat intake. 
  • Take Your Own Shopping Bag - Yes an oldie but a goodie - start by going to your local thrift store and picking up some cheap bags. 
  • Turn off your computer - Start saving energy by shutting off your computer when not in use. If you have a laptop, even better, they conserve less energy - don’t use it plugged in if it has enough battery.
  • Hit the Lights - Even if you’re running to the bathroom or getting a snack “real quick” hit the lights.
  • Time Your Shower - Put a radio in the bathroom and limit yourself to one song. You will be saving lots of water (also turn off the water while brushing your teeth).
  • Let There Be (energy-efficient) Light! - If you have your own room, and your parent’s don’t mind - try swapping out the bulbs for CFL bulbs (or convince your parents to buy them). Also, if you have windows in your room, use natural light whenever possible.
  • Unplugged - Start looking around your room for items to “unplug.” .
  • Create Less Waste - Start paying attention to what you’re throwing away .
  • Greener Lunch - If you pack your own lunch for work/school, start using Tupperware (or is it Gladware now?) instead of disposable plastic baggies. 
  • Water - Start drinking water, a natural renewable resource, instead of soda. But don’t drink it from disposable bottles
  • Ride Your Bike or Just Walk! - Start riding your bike or walking to your friends house instead of driving.
  • No Disposables - When you’re grabbing something to eat at home, even if you have the option of a paper plate, go for the real one. You may not be able to convince your family to switch - but you’re leading by example.
  • Wear Em Out - Wear your clothes more than once. Start evaluating if something is really dirty. This will save on water and energy from doing laundry.
  • Educate Yourself - If you start slow it will just become habit, a lifestyle - you won’t even realize you’re doing it anymore.
