Good Afternoon Parents,
We have been working on an individualized menu in our new ecology unit. Students are working independently or with a partner through our objectives. Students should be up to Objective 5 on the menu. If students are not completing work in class, it is rolling over to homework but it is really designed to be completed completely in class so I can provide direction and feedback. The menu itself, vocabulary, and the online assignments can be found here:
We are continuing with the menu this week:
Tuesday: (1) whole class review for Quiz on Objectives 1-5; (2) start objective 7 (note there is no objective 6 at this time; objective 6 will be a project next week on animal communication with Dr. Wilkins, our Vanderbilt Resident Scientist)
HW: Study for quiz. Reviewing vocabulary and the tasks on the “padlet” is a good practice. Finish objective 5 if not turned in already.
Wednesday: (1) Quiz on Objectives 1-5 (this will be a timed, 20 question multiple-choice test similar to “task card” questions students have practiced with); (2) continue with objective 7.
HW: finish objective 7 if not done in class, due Friday.
Thursday: Objective 8 & 9 (due to MAP testing, we may not have the computer cart and thus may do these objectives as “whole class”)
HW: finish objective 7 if not done in class, due tomorrow.
Friday: Finish Objective 9 and start Ecology Performance Event (“Marine Ecosystem Energy Pyramid”) in class, due 11/28.
Have a great week!
