First of all my apologies. For some reason, the homework posts are not always saving properly. PLEASE email me if you are concerned about an assignment for the day. We have finished our research and are ready to type our report in the computer lab on Thursday. Have your rough draft ready to type. You will find a graphic organizer on the Nervous System Resource page. We also reviewed Lab Safety. Get your lab contract signed and finish your safety worksheets.
Wow, two snow days right after break! That happened last year too! So today we started our research on the how sensory receptors respond to stimuli. (see Tuesday 1/5/15 for more information) Students can continue researching this weekend if they wish. We will also have time on Monday and Tuesday for this. I will give students a new due date next week based on the availability of computer lab time.
Here you will find our proposed agenda for the week; subject to change. The assignment notebook should be the day to day record of assignments.
