We launched Unit 4 with an introduction to the concept of meiosis. We began with a Crash Course video about heredity (below) and then followed that with a reading assignment. Students completed the reading from Chapter 4 of Inside the Cell (pages 52-59), answering the “Got It?” questions on page 59 in their lab notebooks.
For Lesson 66, students learned the definition of humidity on slide 5 of the Lesson 66 PowerPoint. Students then broke into groups and conducted the lab outlined in the Lesson 66 Worksheet. The worksheet packet also included a copy of the Relative Humidity Handout to use for calculations. For homework, students may work through any 4 problems from the textbook (or take notes on the reading – always an option!). Students were also reminded that we will have the Chapter 12 quiz next Tuesday and the Unit 3 exam next Thursday.
