First Week of School!
You were given notes about the scientific method and characteristics of life. You also did a Web Adventure (Disease Defenders) about the scientific method where you either chose to explore the epidemiology, microbiology, or veterinarian career path.
We did a lab where you used the scientific method on a pack M&M's. You asked a question about the M&M's and then you collected data. In the end, you were able to eat them.
Characteristics of Life
We also covered the topic of what makes something living. There are 8 defining characteristics in biology for life.
We also went over lab safety through a youtube video that covered all of the lab safety guidelines.
Your HW for the week is to have a 1.5-2 inch binder and 9 dividers for class.
