On Tuesday, May 29, we will be having our final science test for the year. It is a comprehensive exam which will cover ALL the topics we discussed over the last 9 months. Please review your science notes, vocabulary foldables, BrainPop videos, handouts, etc. to prepare for this test. The exam will be approximately 40 multiple choice and short answer questions. Here are a list of topics to help you to study:
Weather (Conditions, Clouds, Air Pressure, Fronts, Air Masses, Isolines, Atmosphere)
Energy (Transformations, KE/PE)
Heat (Types of Heat Transfer, Expansion/Contraction)
Complete the following task, and email a .pdf of your slide to contact(at)mrtubbs.info by 11:59pm on Friday, May 25. Only projects that are completed with personal excellence will be considered for credit. (Do your BEST!)
Task: Create a Keynote (or Powerpoint or Google Slide) 1-slide presentation of your research on Zebra Mussels and Native Clams. Your presentation should include the following:
– Background Research (five sources of evidence/information)
– Explanation of Methods (provided by Mr. Tubbs – see below)
– Results/Data (graphs)
– Discussion (DSET writing)
– Literature Cited (all sources – websites, articles, videos, etc.) This will look like a project board. There is an example in the gallery below.
Here are some images and graphs that may help you in your presentation:
Zebra Mussels and Native Clams were examined yearly by scientists from the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies. Samples were collected at a sampling site near Kingston, NY from 1986 to 2013. All data was retrieved from the American Museum of Natural History’s “Hudson River Ecology” curriculum.
