Due:

Lizard cladistics lab in Google Classroom

Lizard cladistics lab

Lizard cladistics lab - how species come to be and how we measure changes
You must do MODULES ONE AND TWO
Start with the video of me (walking you through some stuf) then the video explaining the basics of the lizard group - Anoles. They're common pets, but the type you'll see in pet stores is only one of many. There are data table to fill out, a few questions to answer, and a check list that will be saved as a pdf and turned in here on google classroom.
To be clear - you must click "print" on the results tab when you have completed both modules, then "save as pdf", then name the pdf with your name and period. Turn that file in.
Since there was supposed to be one more assessment, this will be it.

Due:

Earth worm and sea star lab practical in Google Classroom

Earth worm and sea star lab practical

comparative anatomy chart may be used and will be collected with the lab practical. So - do it well. Lab practicals can not be reassessed, but the intent is that you will be doubly rewarded if you do paste a good job on the chart.
You may put anything you like on the chart, front and back, but it must all be done by hand. No print and paste.

Origami birds

Answer the questions at the bottom of the second page. You should have the data sheet from the last two days of class.

Keystone species slides/digital poster in Google Classroom

Keystone species slides/digital poster

This is your resource partition/niche/role of keystone species ASSESSMENT. Essentially, what are factors that shape living parts of ecosystems and how it is that some parts are more important than others.
We'll start it in class at the end of the week. Your organism will be randomly determined  - literally drawn out of a hat!
It's due on Monday, but think of it as homework for this week. You can work on it over the weekend, but I do not expect you will need to if you are focused in class and maybe spend 30 minutes at home.

Due:

Keystone species activity, notes 6.2 and 7.1 in Google Classroom

Keystone species activity, notes 6.2 and 7.1

Hi please be especially nice to the sub (especially since I'm playing hooky!) they'll be coping with the crazy long periods too . . .
For Friday you need to -
1) watch the video linked below
2) THEN get the paper exercise - you may work in groups, and you might need to go back and check some stuff in the video - that 5 page set is due Monday.
3) Complete notes for 6.2 and 7.1


PLUS your third quarter midterm is Monday covering photosynthesis, cell respiration and the ecology stuff we've done in the last two weeks.


Last, I haven't checked notes in a while . . .


So - even though there's lots of time, you also have lots to do

Alpine Tundra case study of ecological constraint in Google Classroom

Alpine Tundra case study of ecological constraint

What is it like to live in this ecosystem? What would make it especially hard to live there? How are those difficulties different from native species in the biome outside your door?



In pairs, create three google slides explaining these questions FROM the perspective of the organism you drew with your partner.

Due:

Food webs in Google Classroom

Food webs

Using the biome you drew from the random deck, identify 4 different plants, primary consumers, and secondary consumers; two each of detritivores and tertiary consumers. (those terms are from your Chapter 4 notes if you don't recognize them)
Arrange those organisms in a food web with images and names (common or scientific is ok) and most importantly arrows indicating which consumes which. The arrows go from the organism being eaten to the organism consuming it - ALMOST all the arrows will point up . . .which will not?

The DNA unzip is a basic description - you saw it in class last week
Replication happens every time a cell divides (to replace "worn out" cells or when living things grow)
Transcription is how we make a copy of the instructions (genes) for life's primary building blocks (proteins)
