The Unit 7 Hunger Games

Today in #hbio we’ll be reviewing for tomorrow’s test over Unit 7. To review, you’ve been selected to be Tributes in the Unit 7 Hunger Games!!! Ok, so its not life or death survival of the fittest, instead we’ll be doing a speed stations activity. There are 32 stations posted throughout the room. You and a partner will try to complete these stations as ACCURATELY & QUICKLY as possible. You are Competing against the other players in your class. The fastest, and the most accurate, will receive a bonus point.

At the end of the day, I will post the stations on this site for you to review with. Be sure to study your Unit 7 Study Guide as well. Good Luck, and may the odds be forever in your favor…

Plan for 11/2

Sorry for not being there today.  In the mean time here is what I want you to work on while I’m out.

Biology:

    1. Use the page number listed on your notes (puzzle pieces) to get the notes on active transport.
    2. Then, watch the YouTube video on Active Transport (below) and take any additional notes and Highlight anything you already had. If you want to download the notes page and take notes on notability it can be found by clicking this link.
    3. Then take the 10 question T/F Quiz
    4. Finally, if there is time, answer the review questions with your table mates… or “tates” as I like to call them.

As a reminder… your Unit 4 test is Next Tuesday!

Origin of Eukaryotes

3pxff (1)

Yesterday we discussed prokaryotes; their characteristics and examples. Today, we’ll examine the eukaryotic cell and its characteristics. But, before we do, lets take a moment to theorize where Eukaryotes evolved from 1.5 billion years ago.

For today’s warm up, do the “Endosymbiosis” worksheet

Key ← Use it as a resource, not to copy

Then we’ll be taking some time to learn the parts of a Eukaryotic cell. Please watch the YouTube Video or open the PPT in Keynote to complete the “Cell Part Chart” in a paper format or as a PDF.

In our next class, we’ll review the types of cells as well as this chart and the parts of a Eukaryotic cell.

Characteristics of Life

Over the next few days, until our Test on Friday or Monday, we’ll be studying the 8 characteristics of life. You should know the description of each, any vocabulary associated, be able to provide an example, and assess how each characteristics relates to the others.

  1. Cells
  2. Metabolism
  3. Reproduction
  4. Homeostasis
  5. Evolve
  6. Heredity
  7. Respond to Stimuli
  8. Growth/Development

 

SEHS: Here is the .xlsx file you’ll need to put in numbers

 

Lab Safety… it’s no Accident

Today we’ll be going over some important information about your safety in a Lab setting. After review the Lab Safety rules (check the documents page for your specific class for a PDF version), take a look at the image below. See if you can spot some incidences of failing to follow lab procedures for safety.

Reminder there will be a “Common Sense” Lab Safety Quiz tomorrow for Biology

First Day of School 2017!!!

I know… I feel the same way.

Welcome to Mr. Kubuske’s Class! First, please add this link to your home screen (If you do it right, you should see a picture of your new favorite teacher smiling at you right from your iPad). After that feel free to browse this page. At the top are links to class pages where notes, assignments, and documents will be posted for you to download as we work through our curriculum. There’s a page for students, a page about Mr. K, and other resources available. On the right (or bottom if you are using Safari on the iPad) are links to my twitter and other information that will help you.

Next, there are a few papers on the front table I’d like you to pick up. You will need to keep these papers all semester so put them in a safe place. Eventually, these papers will need to go in your Class 3-ring binder. Yes, a separate binder just for Science. Trust me, I’m helping you out here. You must have the binder by Monday! This is your 2nd assignment of the year.

Once you have the papers you can complete the assignment titled Biology Procedures Activity that you picked up from the front table. This, in case you were wondering, is your first assignment of the year.

As a reminder, you will need to download your iBook at home or in a place where you can be on a wifi network for a long period of time.

Thanks for participating and we look forward to working with you this year!

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU for a fantastic school year. I had so much fun with each and every one of you. I loved getting to know you, what makes you tick, what inspires you, how you learn best, and so much more! My hope is that you got as much out of learning with me as I got from teaching with you. Please, please, please come by and visit next year and see what the new freshmen are up to, or if you need help with a little chemistry.

As a final gesture of goodwill, please take a second to fill out the form below to help me make this class even better than it has been. Have a fun and safe summer and I’ll see you next year!
