Body Systems- Standard 3 Review

We are going to be BUSY this week in science!  Next week is our Standard 3 Cells Test, and I am not going to lie, it is not an easy test.  In order to be prepared, you will need to make sure that you listen in class and complete ALL of your assignments.  You are also going to want to take some time to study for this test.

In order to help you stay on track and not get behind this week, I have made a Science Assignment Tracker for you to check off the assignments as you complete them.

On the back of the tracker, you will notice that there is a crossword puzzle. The crossword puzzle is NOT required, but can be completed for extra credit :) :) :)

Today you will also need to log onto UTIPS and take the Body Systems Quiz.

Links to the other assignments on the Science Assignment Tracker are below:

Here is the information you need to be able to work on the first page of our Egg Osmosis Lab.

Good luck and have FUN learning!!!

Here are some pictures of the eggs from class. These can be used to fill in the information on Day 1 and Day 2 of your Egg Osmosis Lab paper if you have been absent.

 DAY ONE:  The raw eggs have been sitting in vinegar for a day and a half.

The vinegar is an acid that eats away the shell of the egg and leaves the egg in tact in its membrane.

DAY TWO:  We took the eggs from the vinegar and placed them into various liquids.

Egg in pure water.

Egg in salt water

Egg in colored water

Egg in corn syrup
