Wrapping up 2-weeks and Introducing our first unit

Two things were accomplished in class today:
  • We wrapped up two big topics in class today.  TOPIC 1 was to summarize the differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.  This is a common theme in Biology that we will cover several times throughout the school year.  I strongly encouraged the kids to understand this concepts as quickly as possible to make their lives easier in Biology.  TOPIC 2 was to identify the 8 characteristics or requirements of life.  Those 8 requirements would be:
    • Having cells
    • Having a genetic code (DNA)
    • Reproduction
    • Growth and Development
    • Maintaining a Stable Internal Environment
    • Evolving as a Species
    • Obtaining and Using Materials (Eating, Breathing, Drinking, etc...)
    • Responding to their environment.
  • We also introduced the topic of:  WHERE DID ALL OF THE MATERIALS THAT MAKE UP LIVING THINGS ORIGINATE FROM?
