Frog Dissection






ODMS 3/22 and NFDMS 3/23

Please complete the animations below and write out a step-by-step set of instructions on how to conduct a flower dissection. Each step should have at least one drawing. This should be done on paper.






NFDMS 3/7 and ODMS 3/8

Create a prezi that highlights and explains the adaptations of an animal of your choice. You must talk about at least 10 different adaptations and use text, images, and video. All your text needs to come from reliable sources and must be cited. Please begin your prezi with a blank document.

ODMS 2/14 & NFDMS 2/15

Play the game below. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE DIRECTIONS! Once you have finished, in an email, write a 2 paragraph summary and reflection of what this game has taught you about natural selection. Then write a one paragraph compare/contrast of this game and the off-road vehicle assignment from Friday.



ODMS 2/10 & NFDMS 2/13

Today you will be designing an off road vehicle to look at the idea of natural selection.

First, open a new tab and create a google doc that is titled correctly (Last, First - Natural Selection) and then share it with Mr. Collings.

Here is the situation; you are in charge of designing a vehicle that can drive from here (O'Neals or North Fork) to Yosemite without using any roads as quickly as possible. In your google doc, answer the following questions using complete sentences (please copy and paste these questions to your doc to save time)

1. Where should the wheels be?
2. How far apart should the wheels be?
3. How big should the wheels be?
4. What should the suspension (shock absorbers) do?
5. What shape should the vehicle be?

Once you have answered these five questions to the best of your ability, please click on the link below.

OFF ROAD VEHICLE NATURAL SELECTION

After watching these off road vehicles, lets see how your understanding of off road vehicle design has changed. In your google doc, answer the following questions using complete sentences (please copy and paste these questions to your doc to save time). I know you have answered the first 5 already, but lets see if your ideas have changed. Please do not put the exact same answers.

1. Where should the wheels be?
2. How far apart should the wheels be?
3. How big should the wheels be?
4. What should the suspension (shock absorbers) do?
5. What shape should the vehicle be?
6. What causes vehicles to tip over?
7. What was special about the vehicles that went the furthest?
8. How is this similar to natural selection in animals?


NFDMS 2/1 and ODMS 2/2

Complete flipping your coin to see which gene is donated from each parent. Then write the genotype (two letters - Cc for face shape) and then the pheonotype (Circle for either CC or Cc, and oval for cc). Get to your google docs and create a new drawing (there is an option for "Drawing" when you click on "Create New"). Create the smiley face that is on your paper.

When you are done creating your smiley face (15-20 minutes), read the two links below.
The History of Genetics - How Animals Were Domesticated
The History of Genetics - How Wild Plants Were Domesticated

Email Mr. Collings a 2-3 paragraph summary of the articles above.


ODMS 1/4 and NFDMS 1/5

Create a poster of your assigned organelle that shows:
  • What it does in the cell
  • What it looks like in the cell
  • What it is similar to when compared to a factory


ODMS 11/9 and NFDMS 11/10

Your job is to create an exercise plan that only uses your own body weight and resistance bands. This will be done is a Google Document (not presentation). You may work by yourself, or in groups of 2.
  • Six day schedule (M-Sat)
  • Two exercises that isolate each muscle (24 total)
  • One complex move, that engages multiple muscle groups, per day (6 total)
  • 5 exercises per day
  • Detailed description of how to do each exercise
  • At least 2 pictures for each exercise (start position and finish position)
    • Taken with webcam

ODMS 11/7 and NFDMS 11/8

For each of the major muscle groups found on the quizlet and purpose games, identify how that muscle moves the joint it is associated with. Then explain how that muscle is involved with a complex motion that you do during a regular day.

Example: The bicep causes flexion at the elbow. When lifting your backpack off the ground, your bicep brings your hand toward your shoulder.



ODMS 10/28




Quiz coming soon on the major muscle groups. Spelling will count. Use quizlet and purpose games to study

ODMS 10/18 & NFDMS 10/19

Create a presentation that gives information on the different types of joints in the skeletal system. For each joint, explain how it moves, where it is found in the body, and give one example of the same type of motion for an object outside the human body (example: a hinge joint is like the hinge on a door). You must have cited pictures for each slide and a references page.

  • Fibrous
  • Cartilaginous
  • Synovial
    • Hinge
    • Saddle
    • Ball and Socket
    • Ellipsoid
    • Pivot
    • Gliding
