(Yes, I know that your schedule says Alice Jensen. That’s my maiden name and it was put on PowerSchool by mistake. I’ve put in a tech order with the district to get it changed, but don’t be surprised if you see “Alice Jensen” on emails from me, as well as PowerSchool and Canvas. Sorry!)
Biology is the study of life. This year in biology, we will start by learning about ecology. Think ecosystems, environments, and food chains. Next, we will learn about cells–the teensy tiny particles that make up every living thing. (This is my favorite section.) The third unit will cover DNA and genetics, where we’ll learn why things are the way that they are. And finally, we’ll dive into evolution, which is the theory explaining how species can change over time.
We use Canvas for many assignments in this class. Here is the link to our Canvas page:
