Week of April 24th in Science

Dear School Family,
 
We will have a unit test that will cover genetics, heredity, and homeostasis on May 2nd.  If you feel strongly one way or the other about a hard copy review, please email me and tell me.  I think that me giving the students a link to a quizlet flashcard set worked well the first time, but not the second time.  
 
We will work on predicting offspring by using Punnet squares this week.  Please encourage your child to really concentrate this week.  Punnet squares are like puzzles and easiest to understand when a person understands the rules used to complete them.
 
This week in science -
Monday - April 24th - begin to apply the vocabulary to real situations
Tuesday - students work on filling the Punnet square; check together
Wednesday - quiz over Punnet square; begin geneman (major grade)
Thursday - finish geneman
Friday - tie up any loose strings on heredity and genetics
 
If you have any questions, please email me at jullrich@huntsville-isd.org.
