We began Unit 2 with the Lesson 28 PowerPoint (slides 1-9) and then transitioned to the lab with the accompanying Lesson 28 Worksheet. Students worked in groups of 4 to complete the lab and worksheet, and then worked individually to complete textbook questions 1, 2, and 7.
After the nice long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we returned to our study of energy, matter, and organization by connecting our previous work deducing the formula of cellular respiration with the study of nutrition. Students were tasked with completing the Relating Nutrition & Chronic Disease. They were also encouraged to use the USDA’s National Nutrient Database to look up the nutrient content of any ingredients not listed in the worksheet packet.
