    Day 1 : Students will be given the following scenario: You are sitting at Railroad Park with a group of friends enjoying a live concert. The sun is shining bright, causing you to put on your sunglasses. You brought with you some peaches from a peach tree to snack on while you were at the park. Is there a connection between you , the sun and the peach? If so, draw a diagram to support your claim.Label the following terms in your diagram: energy, autotrophs, heterotrophs, matter, and ecosystem

    • if students are unclear of connection, they will complete a K.I.M graphic organizer on the following terms: autotrophs, heterotrophs, energy, matter, and Ecosystem

    Day 3


    The students will draw or use a technological device to design a model of how plants and animals function together in an Ecosystem. In their model they will include the following: Sun ( light energy), plant,( leaf),  animal (mitochondria), and both equations of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. I will attach an example.

    II am extremely excited about the journey we will take in discovering Biology. In my class, you are

    tomorrow's scientists, doctors, educators, engineers, architects, and leaders. Whatever your goals

    are- they are attainable; and my purpose is to prepare and provide you with the skills, knowledge, and

    access to resources that will allow you to accomplish your goals.

    Our success requires a vision, step by step goals, and hard work. Hard Work is what separates dreamers

    from their accomplishments. In this class you will learn that Work= Force X Distance. I will be that force;

    your parents will be that force; your peers will be that force; forever aiming to push you further. We will

    come to understand Science not just as a subject but as thought processes and procedures with necessary

    analytical skills that can be applied to any circumstance.
