Bodies Exhibit Field trip. Jan. 6th 2017
40 Mt. Everett students visited the Bodies Exhibit at the Rhode Island Convention Center where they were fascinated by the incredible displays of human anatomy.
The exhibition BODY WORLDS informs the visitor about anatomy, physiology, and health by viewing real human bodies. The exhibit we saw was a special collection of specimens designed to show visitors the basics for human health and wellness. The exhibition includes whole-body plastinates, large arrangement of individual organs, organ and arterial configurations, and translucent slices that give a complete picture of how the human body works. Vital tells the fascinating story of how best to fight life-threatening diseases—such as cancer, diabetes, and heart ailments—through healthy choices and lifestyle changes.

If you’re unable to check Plus Portals you can request a progress report mailed/emailed home.
It’s hard to believe that we are almost 1/4 of the way into the school year!
1st Quarter ends Nov. 2nd
Biology students can retake their lowest quiz/test from the quarter on Friday, Oct. 28th or Monday, Oct. 31st. Please arrange to do this during your lunch or structured support period. The retake will be averaged with the original score. Take advantage of this opportunity to review material and bring your average up a few points.
Students should study Unit 2 packet: notes set #1 & #2, pictures of cells (plant, animal, prokaryote), and review guide. I also recommend reviewing the vocab assignments from the past two weeks and watching the crash course videos on cell membranes, plant cells, and eukaryote cells. Links to videos and powerpoints viewed in class can be found here: https://mrsmelino.wordpress.com/biology/biology-unit-lessons/
What you need to know:
* Define the three parts of the modern cell theory
* Distinguish between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell types

* Explain the role of cell membranes as a highly selective barrier
* Define tonicity: Isotonic, Hypertonic, Hypotonic
* Understand the types of active and passive transport.
1st Quarter progress reports were mailed home this week. Please look for them. If you have any questions about your child’s progress in class contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org or at ext 135 after 2:45.
