    • Bayou View Middle School - Weekly Lesson Plan

        • Week of:  October 18-22, 2021
        • Teacher: Kidd/ M. Lee/ Wallace
        • Essential Question:  What is the structure and function of living things?
        • Target Question:        How do scientists study protists?
        • Weekly Objectives:  L.6.4 Students will demonstrate an understanding of classification tools and models such as dichotomous keys to classify representative organisms based on the characteristics of the kingdoms: Archaebacteria, Eubacteria, Protists, Fungi, Plants, and Animals.    L.6.4.4 Conduct investigations using a microscope or multimedia source to compare the characteristics of protists (euglena, paramecium, amoeba) and the methods they use to obtain energy and move through their environment (e.g., pond water).
        • Extra Credit:  Students will have the option to complete Incredulous Critters Building Dichotomous Keys for a drop grade card for science.  This will be due Friday, October 29, 2021.

      Monday 10/18

      Procedure: Students will complete a study guide for the unit test on dichotomous keys, classification, and kingdoms. Students will participate in a review game either in Blooket or Quizizz.    

      Tuesday 10/19

      Procedure: Students will be given ten minutes to review for the unit test.  Students will take a unit test on classification, dichotomous keys, and the six kingdoms.  Early Finishers will complete a color by number on classification. 

       

      Wednesday 10/20

      Procedure: Students will complete an assignment related to Article of Week for bell work.  Students will watch an Amoeba Sisters-Fungi vs Protists video clip and answer text-based questions about the video.  Students will be able to rewatch as needed to complete the assignment.
