• Happy Monday!

    Below is the optional content for this week.  I am posting everyday this week with suggestions of what you would want to complete each day. Some activities I anticipate will take more than one day so I will note that below.  While this work is optional, I would appreciate if all of my students could pick at least one activity to try this week and to submit just so I can be sure that I am receiving assignments and that the system is working.  This is not required just a request.  Feel free to email me questions if you have them - I am trying to check email pretty regularly during this time.  

    Thank you and stay healthy,

    Mrs. Diehl

  • Happy Friday - while windy it is a beautiful day - I have posted a question on the google classroom about what is a sign of spring you see.  Please feel free to respond.  It is open to the class so please keep it appropriate.  I am just giving this a try to see how it works for the future

    Reminder - all of the assignments posted here and for this entire week are optional and non graded.  I have put in due dates of mainly today and tomorrow only because we are moving to the Learn at Home plans as of Monday and I want you to all transition to the new model.  Feel free to submit these throughout the weekend but on Monday use the Learn at Home plans in the folders.  That is when we will be starting new material.

    Have a great weekend,

    Mrs. Diehl

     ALL ASSIGNMENTS FROM THIS WEEK ARE NON GRADED AND OPTIONAL - YOU MAY COMPLETE ANY FROM ANY DAY IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE TODAY'S IF YOU WANT TO SUBMIT SOMETHING FOR ME TO CHECK!  THANKS!!!  

    Anatomy and Physiology

    AP Biology 2

    • AP Biology Concept Map ideas - in the classroom.  This is to give you a chance to get started with organzing material for the exam.  We should know more today or tomorrow about assessment dates so we can see how much time we have.  
    • This is a TWO Day Assignment since there are a lot of options and you can pick and choose.  I am happy to look them over if you upload them in the classroom for this assignment.
    • In addition I encourage you to be checking out the AP live review sessions on the CollegeBoard website they are having for AP Biology each day at 4.  Today's topic is Speciation.
    • FRIDAY - the college board is going to be posting a bunch of information on the exam today.  I am not giving any new assignments but I highly encourage those of you taking the exam to review that material over the next several days.  There is a lot of good items that will help you prepare for the new style of exam.  I think you have the potential to do very well!

    Environmental Science and Ecology

    • The Great Elephant Census Video - this is a short (under 10 min) video of  how a research team about 5 years ago used transects to record the elephant population.  Watch it and then fill out the video questions in classroom.
    • I am fine with you just doing the video from yesterday but if you already did it and want a different assignment you can read pages 210-211 and answer the question on the google form.

    Biology 1 (period 5)

    • Genetic Disorder Research Project - you will pick a genetic disorder of your choice, research it and fill out the google doc in the google classroom for that disorder.  Submit when you are finished.
    • This is a TWO DAY so same assignment as yesterday.

    CP Biology (7th period)

    • Continuing with reviewing chapter 10, for today and Thursday I am asking you to complete the Chapter 10 Review Questions 1-19 page 303.  I have created a google doc with the questions if you want to use it.  THIS WAS A TWO DAY so no new work today.

    Anatomy and Physiology

    • Neurophysiology Virtual Lab - in this lab you will first go through a leech dissection (very cool) and then use the characteristics of different neurons to try and identify them.  Then you will fill out the google doc that goes with the lab on classroom.  I would check out the doc before starting the lab.
