week of 11/24 - 11/25

    We are starting our next big unit of photosynthesis this week. We will start out with some introductory information about plant pigments and a lab showing the different color pigments in leaves on Monday. On Tuesday, we will go over guided notes over photosynthesis and watch a Bill Nye video over photosynthesis to wrap up our week.
    I cannot stress enough how important it is for students to really study and know the vocabulary. For many students this vocabulary will be completely foreign to them and will require a lot of extra work to retain. The students will need to know the basics of what comes into photosynthesis and what comes out; the reactants and products.

Our week (approx.):
Monday 11/24: Chromatography lab, pigment notes
Tuesday 11/25: Guided notes over photosynthesis and Bill Nye Video.

I wish all of you to have a great Thanksgiving break with plenty of food and family.

Bill Nye Video
Crash Course: Photosynthesis  - a little too detailed, but overall a good video
Photosynthesis song - a catchy lil tune about photosynthesis set to the tune of the great Taylor Swift
