Today, we began to look at quantitative observations by finding volume of objects. Tomorrow, we will continue to find the mass of objects and then using these two measurements to determine the density of an object.
Please print off the following note for tomorrow: characteristic-physical-properties

Today, we explored more of the physical properties using qualitative observations.
Please complete the Classifying Matter worksheet and the following for homework tonight:

Today, we reviewed the 5 Principles in the Particle Theory and what makes up Matter. Remember that Matter is anything that has mass and takes up volume. It can be describe in different forms from a Pure Substance to a Mixture. Here is a more detailed organizer:
We also looked at describing matter using the substances physical characteristics. For homework, please complete worksheet as well as read text: 179-181 and complete page 182 #1,2,4
Today, we began our first day of Chemistry. Here is the work for you to do:
- Read page 601 on WHMIS and HHPS. Complete the two charts for your notes.
- Read the note on Models of Matter. After, read page 175 (to the end of the Particle Theory) and answer #2 on page 178.
- Read page 175-178 in text. Using the worksheet with the diagram on Matter and figure 8 on page 178, fill in the missing spots on your worksheet. Do the questions at the bottom of the page.
- Answer #3-8 on page 178.
- Complete the worksheet on Classifying Matter.
Here is the note on adaptations for you to complete: adaptations31gaya
Remember to post your pictures for the formal lab into the D2L dropbox.
Tuesday – Nutrient Cycles & Nitrogen Testing
Wednesday – Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration
Thursday – Lab Analysis Questions and Review for Test
Friday – Library for End of the Unit Project
Tuesday, October 18 – Test
This week we have looked at day 2 of our test tubes of pond water with fertilizer, acid and control. Monday will be our final day of observations. Please be ready Monday and Tuesday to go outside for Part B.
This week we have also learned about Biodiversity including the classification of species into Kingdoms. If you need to catch up on notes for that class, please look here: biodiversity
We also looked at Population Characteristics and limiting factors. If you need to catch up from that note, please look here: snc_01_09_population_characteristics_limiting_factors.
Part A and B of our formal Lab
Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration
Begin Research on Final Task
Today we looked at Ecological Pyramids and Ecological Relationships. Make sure to complete the short reading and find any relationships of Mutualism, Commonsalism, Parasitism, Competitive (Intraspecific or Interspecific) & Predator-Prey.
Tomorrow we are starting our big lab for this Unit. Please make sure to bring $0.25 for lab book
Monday is our Quiz. We will cover everything up until today’s lesson: Variables, Microscope items and functions, Microscope drawings, Abiotic and Biotic Elements, Food Chains & Webs.
