Mrs. Halas Moulton teaches Graphic Arts, Digital Tech, Science, Social Studies, Make, Environmental Issues and World Issues

Choose an endangered animal and do a project. The way you present your findings in your choice but you must research this:

  1. Some key points about the animal and their habitat
  2. Human impact on the animals and their environment
  3. What is being done to help those animals?
  4. What more do you suggest should be done?

You can share your findings with me in a Powerpoint, essay, poster.  MUST BE IN YOUR OWN WORDS.

1)     Labo de limte de croissiance cellulaire (extrait des épines) – Copier et coller le titre, problème, matériel, procède.  Ajoutez votre propre hypothèse, votre feuille d’observation, explique tes résultats et répondez aux questions de conclusion.


2)     Labo de plantes – Écrivez votre titre, nom, la date, le problème, l’hypothèse, matériel, procède, attaché votre feuille d’observations, résultats et conclusion.


Problem: Understand how different levels of acidity affect the mass of shells

Background knowledge:


Hypothesis:  If_______ then _______ because



 Type up your lab.  SEE ATTACHED for your evaluation rubric and guide to writing a lab.

1)            Title and names

2)            Statement of the Problem

3)            Background Information:

a)   What is the historical pH level in the ocean?

b)   How much is the pH changing?

c)    What organisms does the changing pH affect?

d)   What is causing the change in pH levels?

e)    What common household ingredients could be mixed with water to change pH in water?


4)            Hypothesis: If __________ then ______________ because

5)            Materials (as a list)

6)            Procedure

7)            Results:

a)   Analyze your results and explain it to the world - be scientific explaining what you proved with your experiment

b)   Ex.  The shell that was in lemon juice for 13 days with a pH of 5 experienced a change in weight of 12%.  It was also observed that the colour changed, 5 2mm holes were formed and the shell became very brittle breaking easily with slight hand pressure.

8)            Conclusion: 

a)           Answer your intital question

b)           Explain whether your hypothesis was correct

c)           Explain any potential mistakes in this experiment (like evaporation)

d)           How can this information be applied to the real world problem of the rise in ocean acidification?

e)           What further research could be done in our lab and out on the oceans to learn more about this problem?

Test mercredi le 10 avril, 2019

  1. Choose a country that has been colonized.  (You can't choose Canada or Europe). Tell the teacher your choice.
  2. Place that country on a world map (2 points)
  3. Create a timeline of 10 important events in the colonization of that country (20 points)
  4. Explain two laws or policies from that country that are discriminatory and explain (6 points)
  5. Name two leaders who are speaking out (or have spoken out) for indigenous rights in that country and explain their message (6 points)
  6. Name some of the steps that country has taken for reconciliation (4 points)
  7. What do you propose needs to be done to further improve the situation in that country? (2 points)

You can present your learning in a PowerPoint or poster or writing piece.  Make sure you count out your points in your presentation so that you get full marks.  We will work on this alternating days for a week or so - it will be due April 12th.

Due Friday, March29th

  • Divide into two groups. 
  • Rock, paper, scissors between the groups.  The winner gets to choose which side of the debate they want to be on.  One group will argue that climate change requires immediate action and a target for all sectors to get to carbon zero ASAP no matter what it takes (Greta Thurnberg and many European countries’ position).  The other group will argue that climate change is either not real/or real but not so immediate and that we need to support jobs and the economy first (American/NB/Alberta’s position).
  • The debate will go like this:
  • A) Group 1 makes a point, Group 2 refutes that point, Group 1 defends their point. 
  • B) Group 2 makes a point, Group 1 refutes that point, Group 2 defends their point.
  • C) This continues back and forth until each group gets a final summation
  • Groups need to choose a leader who is not necessarily the one who is going to talk the most but one who can organize the team.
  • They need to choose half their group to make the main points and half the group to anticipate the other group’s points and make up rebuttals.  Each student needs a strong paragraph written by the end of class.  The debate will be Friday.
  • (P.S. For those that didn't finish their climate change video questions I added the file just below here to more easily access the links)

Here are the climate change video questions it should be easier to follow the link than typing in the URL:


Read the following article:

Answer the following questions - hand in at the end of the period for marks.  Due Wednesday, March 27th.  FOR A TWO POINT QUESTION MAKE SURE YOU HAVE TWO STRONG POINTS.  FOR A THREE POINT QUESTION THREE POINTS ETC...

  1. Consider how much light bulbs have decreased in energy requirements in the last 20 years.  Explain here how this makes it easier to generate electricity (page 1, 2 points)
  2. Can you imagine how different your life would be with no power in your home?  List the ways in which your life would be different (page 2, 3 points)
  3. What is the problem with electricity that is fueled with fossil fuels? (page 2, 2 points)
  4. Did you ever consider how access to electricty affects people's quality of life so profoundly?  Discuss with examples (page 3, 2 points)
  5. What is enivronmentally impact of the alternatives to electricity listed in the article? (page 4, 2 points)
  6. Which of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals could assisted by bringing electricity to the one billion people on the planet who don't have it?  List the goals by number (3 points) and then choose one and explain how electricity would help meet that goal. (  3 points  )


Un travail individuel.  Choisis une de planètes ou lunes suivantes: le soleil, Mercure, Vénus, notre lune, Mars, Cérès, Jupiter, Io, Europe (Europa en anglais), Saturne, Uranus, Neptune, Triton, Pluton, ou la comète Haley.

Recherche au moins 10 faits au sujet de cette planète/lune.  Utilise ton intelligence et ton créativité pour inventer des adaptions physiologiques (dans son corps) pour survivre sur cette planète.  Construis ton extra-terrestre avec la pâte à modeler ou les autres matériaux dans la classe.  Tu peux aussi dessiner ton créature.  Fais une liste des 10 faits avec les 10 adaptations physiologiques.


Quelques sites crédibles: (vocabulaire en français)


Exemple: sur mon bureau dans la salle 103 il y a un extra-terrestre en pâte à modeler.  Il vit sur Vénus.  L'atmosphère est toxique alors son peau est très dur et imperméable.  

Date limite: le 29 mars
