Living Organisms - 1&2

WALT: Place organisms on a continuum
Part.1

Part.2

Task Description:
For this task room 4 and I were to complete the task of knowing what was smallest - largest. Part 1 explains the living organisms from smallest to largest. Part 2 explains the connections between the cells from smallest to largest. Overall this task was incredibly interesting as it made me actually want to lean about living organisms and our cells.

Dna - note taking!

Dna - note taking!

Today Room 4 watched a short video about cells and how they’re connected. Below this
introduction is my what I’ve been taking notes of. Learning more about cells and how they’re
connected was incredibly interesting. I really hope you enjoy! 
  
How is Dna, chromosomes and gene connected? Today we will be talking about how Dna,
chromosomes and genes relate. 


Our body is made up of hundreds and thousands of cells. Cells are only seen under a microscope. 


Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Chromosomes have different sorts of information about
dna.


 Dna is made up of 4 basis (AKA) 4 different things. A,G,C,T. Dna is in the chromosome, the
chromosome is in the nucleus, and the nucleus is in the cell. 


The reason why Dna is shaped as a ladder is because…
A always joins with T  and G always joins with C


When a sequence of three pairs come together they create a word, then when we add more
words together we then create a chapter which is called gene.  


Gene’s are like chapters in a book. More than one or two genes is what creates our chromosome.
Chromosome is what lives in the nucleus.


Protein base letters:
Codons = words
Gene = Chapter
Chromosome = Book

Science Experiment

Science Experiment!

Aim: see onion cells on a microscope


Hypothesis:
I think the 100x magnification we’ll be able to see what’s about to happen!

Equipment
Microscope Onion
Slide
Cover slip
Tweezers 
Blue dye - Blue stain


Method:
Our very first step started off with using a slide, after that we got ourselves a pair of tweezers and one onion, using the tweezers and onion we were to peel a thin layer of onion and gently placed it onto the slide, after placing the thin layer of onion onto the slide we were to pour a few drops of saline on top and add a bit of blue stain. The last step was to add a cover slip as it’ll help to make our vision more clear to see.


Observation
On the 10x microscope we were able to see the basic shape of the cell.
On the 40x microscope we were able to see a closer version of the segmented area.
On the 100x microscope we were only able to see the blue stain but from what our vision was the colour was purple.

Label the parts of a cell - Inquiry

What’s inside a cell?
SAY IT - NAME IT - LABEL IT

NUCLEUS: Nucleus is the brain of the cell. It tells you what type of cell it will be and when it will decide to divide.

RIBOSOMES: Ribosomes is what makes the proteins. The cell can create new structures from the ribosomes protein.  

CHROMOSOME: It’s the item that carries our dna. 

GOLGI BODIES: Post office? Is what transports molecules around the entire cell.

MITACHONDRION: The powerhouse of the cell. They take in food and turn into energy cellular respiration.  

ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM: Transportation that collect and take the molecules to where they are needed to go.

About Organelles
All living things contain a variety of different cells. Cells are the main structure that living things are based on. The cell membrane is a thin layer that separates what goes in and out. The cell wall is incredibly tough and holds its shape. Cell walls are what let them stand tall. Tiny organ that play a different role in the cell. It gets rid of waste, reproduce and repairs. The organelles float in cytoplasm.

BREAK OUT - MATHS

For today's learning activities room 4 maths were to complete a variety of different maths stages. Today's breakout was super interesting as we were to solve measurement puzzles in groups of 2 - 3 or 4. Everyone were to solve each break out problem to be able to complete the activities. The overall outcome of this breakout activity was incredibly insane as everyone began to fight for their overall, awesome task. The task was set up as different elements and was amazing, one of my favourite activities was the word challenge. I loved this part of maths as it was interesting and really different from what we often do in room 4 maths. I really hope you enjoy our break out task! Enjoy...  

Persuade Map - Planning

WALT: Support our opinions with strong reasons

Task Description:

For this task room 5 and I (Literacy) were to create a map that represents the title, We should have more time for morning tea. For this task I've decided to agree with this main topic as it seemed easier for me to state and I really think these are some awesome main points/statements. To be able to read the texts closely you are to press the image above and read the above, overall this was a really simple task and I'm super happy to be able to share this with you all. Cheers!
