M: Biology - Today you watched a video called the Making of a Theory. Tonight I want you to put the notes you took on the right into the four qualities that I listed for your in class on your left. These qualities were Time, Variation, Inheritance, and Selection. Here's the link to the movie, http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive/origin-species-making-theory
Medical Biology - Tonight I want you to work on the left hand side of your "Seed Hunters" entry and to take notes on the video called "Making of a Theory" http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive/origin-species-making-theory
Period 4 ONLY, please fill out the electronic "Participant Survey" found below and send it to me ELECTRONICALLY to email@example.com as an attachment!
T and W: Biology - I'm out today, and the next day, so I need you to follow the following instructions. The material will be tested when I return on Thursday. Yes, I will test you using Socrative, and yes, you may use all of your notes so do a good job!
First, Start a New Entry: Natural selection and Evolution
On the right side watch the following video: “The Beak of the finch” (15 minutes) and answer the questions that are asked via the interactive video: http://media.hhmi.org/biointeractive/interactivevideo/finchquiz/?_ga=1.170644904.943343696.1489160994
Still on the right: How are these concepts like the seed hunters/finches? How is it not like the seed hunters/finches?
Next start another new entry, Human Origins: On the right, do the following click and learn activity: http://media.hhmi.org/biointeractive/click/Skeletons/01.html?_ga=1.174644514.1695008675.1489950999 You should take notes on the right hand side of your entry.
Lastly, go to this Human Timeline http://humanorigins.si.edu/evidence/human-evolution-timeline-interactive It will show us climate, landmarks, and species of Human ancestors. On the left side of this entry address the following questions using this interactive, and feel free to add anything else you find important.
1) When did Homo Sapiens almost go extinct?
2) Which Homonid species lived the longest?
3) In the past the Earth had many species of homonids, why do you think we are the only that remains?
4) Why is 12000 a landmark for our species?
Lastly, below your answer responses make a Bulls-Eye diagram of Homo Neanderthalis, Homo Heidelbergensis, and Homo Sapien on left side.
Medical Biology - See above
Th: Biology - Today we reflected on all of the work we've done in the last two days (see above) after taking our quiz. We then took the important points from each of the activities and slotted them as bullet points into the left hand side of our entry, next to Making of a Theory. The four categories that they could have fit were Variation, Inheritance, Selection, and Time. Tonight you need to update your table of contents.
Medical Biology - The first thing we did today was take a quiz on the work that was to be completed over the last two days. Then we took the major concepts from each activity, including the big hunt, and placed those as bullet points into the left side of the entry labelled "Natural Selection and Evolution". This left page is divided into quadrants labelled Variation, Time, Inheritance, and Selection. All I need you to do before tomorrow is update your Table of Contents completely! Oh, and if you haven't already done it..Period 4 ONLY, please fill out the electronic "Participant Survey" found below and send it to me ELECTRONICALLY to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment!
F: Biology - SO today we really spent time wrapping all of our ideas together in the classroom. We isolated everything we've talked about and condensed it down to four concepts: Variation, Time, Inheritance and Selection. Please be sure to complete the graphic organizer that we started today.
Medical Biology - In isolating our four big factors involved in evolution today: Variation, Inheritance, Time, and Selection you were able to consolidate your thinking of evolution through this lens. Using what you completed in class I want you to return to the bug you captured and I want you to imagine a story line of how it might have been possible that your bug evolved from it's ancestor to it's modern progeny that you captured. This story line needs to be on a separate piece of paper and should mention the four factors.
Extra Credit opportunity: On a separate piece of paper make a bulls-eye diagram concerning the origins of TERAPODS, BIRD, HUMANS http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive/great-transitions. The videos/interactives can be found at the website. You must have at least 5 points per section of the bulls-eye diagram so you may have to do more research.
This page contains nearly everything that you need if you missed class.
