We survived STAAR!!! The students did a great job during testing and now we anxiously await the results....
We will be wrapping up genetics (why we look like we do) and heading into adapations and variations.
We will be exploring asexual reproduction this week. Today we observed active yeast budding. Very few of us had experience with yeast and how it buds. We had all experienced the smell in some way though-it was fun to smell!
The kids should be wrapping up their experiments on their science fair projects in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully they have been working hard on the experiment and gathering data. That can be time consuming but such an incredible learning experience when the kid has to do it their self and check for results.
