2009/2010 Nothing exciting to note here. We did look at the developing chicken egg, but it was difficult to see and frustrating to some. I haven’t decided if I will do this experiment again next year. I did not require the students to do a lab write-up for it.
One day I was out sick, so I had the students watch a section of flying on The Life of Birds by BBC. While they watched, they filled out this worksheet. I needed them to stay focused and not cause trouble for the other facilitator. lol Each of them did a fine job and I loved all of their sketches.
For an extra experiment, I had the student dissect a fetal pig. You can read about it here (with photos).
Last Day of Co-op. 2010
Biology Bingo Set of ten bingo cards to review some of the vocabulary through-out the book.
We used the overhead projector for the developing chick egg. It worked out so much better than us just eyeballing it. I use the overhead projector again for next year.
We did not play Biology Bingo, due to a few students not attending for the last day. They had good reasons 🙂
For our final project for 2011, the students dissected owl pellets. Read Here. I really don’t think we will be doing that again. I don’t have a reason, just decided not to.
Once again I have enjoyed facilitating this class and look forward to next year. All of my students are great. 🙂
