4
DUE TODAY: Completed pillbug lab, at 6:00 PM
ENTRY TICKET: Review handout on Claim, Evidence, Reason writing. Think about your claim, and your evidence. What information in your Background/Introduction will be helpful in your reasoning? What observations will be helpful in your reflection and limitations?
LEARNING TARGET

Be sure lab is finished by 6:00 PM
5
DUE TODAY:
ENTRY TICKET: Notes set-up, with date, topic, learning target. Update your folder and website - see the board.
LEARNING TARGET
: Construct and use a cladogram to show the relatedness between objects
IN CLASS: What is a cladogram, how do we create them, and how are they useful? Explanations and model, using pens/pencil.

TO DO:
Summarize the process on your website. Include a photo of your cladogram. Also. be sure these documents are in your BioX-lastname folder AND are linked to your website: Living or Not, Pillbug Lab. Also, be sure your website is in your folder.

7
DUE TODAY: Updated folder and website and tables of contents in binder.
ENTRY TICKET:
Skim Lab Safety and write the learning target and date at the top..
LEARNING TARGET
:Work safely in lab, using appropriate PPE and handling equipment and chenmicals safely and correctly.
IN CLASS: Safety investigation - small groups
TO DO:



10
DUE TODAY:
ENTRY TICKET: How many protons, neutrons, and electrons are in 1 atom of oxygen? Explain, using the periodic table.
LEARNING TARGET
:
Explain that ions form when atoms gain or lose electrons, creating a charge on an atom. Gaining or kosing neutrons results in an isotope of that atom. Gaining or kosing protons results in an atom of a completely different element.
IN CLASS:
Review atomic structure. Learn hos ions, ionic bonds, and covalent bonds form.
TO DO: Safety Rules on Website; fill in atomic structure chart.
11
DUE TODAY: Lab Safety Webpage or doc
ENTRY TICKET:
Write learning target on your Water handout.
LEARNING TARGET
: Describe properties of water that result from hydrogen bonding - surface tension, specific heat capacity, cohesion/adhesion, density of ice as compared to water.
IN CLASS: Atomic Structure inquiry small group discussion; Water Olympics
TO DO:
Question #13 on group inquiry

13
DUE TODAY:
ENTRY TICKET:
Compare your lab safety rules with a neighbor. Add 2 rules (or edit 2 rules) you didn't have.
LEARNING TARGET
:Describe properties of water that result from hydrogen bonding - surface tension, specific heat capacity, cohesion/adhesion, density of ice as compared to water.
IN CLASS: Properties of Water discussion - short lecture and small group
.

TO DO:

14
FOG DAY

17
DUE TODAY:
ENTRY TICKET: Question 13 on Inside the Atom - compare with a partner. Sketch 4 water molecules, including correctly located hydrogen bonds.
LEARNING TARGET
:
Describe the properties of water in terms of hydrogen bonds. Explain that ions form when atoms gain or lose electrons, creating a charge on an atom.

IN CLASS: Lab Safety Review; Properties of Water: complete Atomic Structure Inquiry; review of ionic and covalent bonds and hydrogen bonds as the cause of various properties of water.
TO DO:
Summarization of properties of water on website; ETMLIF

18
DUE TODAY:
ENTRY TICKET: Go to this link and add your favorite food.
Add the learning targets and date to your notes.
LEARNING TARGET
: Explain how electrons are gained or lost or shared to form ionic or covalent bonds. Explain why carbon is the backbone of so many kinds of molecules. Identify the functional groups and the biological molecules they identify by sight. List the 4 biological molecules involved with water in most cell processes. Explain that the essential functions of cells involve chemical reactions among 4 main biomolecules and water.
IN CLASS: Identify and label structures in common molecules. Card sort, classifying large molecules into 4 main types that make up living things by identifying their functional groups and shape.Recognize and name the functional groups that characterize each type of molecule.
TO DO:
Add biomolecule sketches and info to chart. Water summary and quiz Thursday -be able to draw water molecules and label covalent and hydrogen bonds, and discuss water properties. Today's class notes
19
No Class
20
DUE TODAY: Water Summary on website
