March 6

Today in integrated science, students took notes and reviewed the Plate Tectonic Theory notes (shared in google classroom). Students will be using this information tomorrow to determine what plate boundaries were not marked on the maps they were given last week.

Science 8 students turned in their readings over the American Chestnut tree, and then we did the wheel of traits. Students were asked to predict who they were most genetically similar to, and then after their work we determined who was most similar. Afterwards, students discussed what this meant for the concept of race, as well as the reading they’ve done for Night. Students read an article on eugenics, and will be discussing it tomorrow, as well as learning about pedigree diagrams.
