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

1)       Title

         Statement of the Problem:

2)      Background Information:

3)      Hypothesis: if/then/because 

4)      Development (materials and procedures)

5)      Results:

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

Conclusion:  THIS PART IS INDIVIDUAL - the rest of the lab can be in your groups - I want to see your thinking here!

  • Answer your intital question
  • Explain whether your hypothesis was correct
  • Explain any potential mistakes in this experiment (like evaporation)
  • How can this information be applied to the real world problem of the rise in ocean acidification?
  • What further research could be done in our lab and out on the oceans to learn more about this problem?

1.      How many tons of seafood are harvested each year?

2.      Why did the carbon footprint increase for fisheries since the 90’s?

3.      Do you think that seafood carbon footprint labelling is a good idea?  Why does Susanna Fuller argue that eating fish has a lower carbon footprint than other protein?

4.      What is by-catch?

5.      Should all food be labelled for carbon footprint? 

6.      What level of government would be responsible for such a food labelling program?

7.      For someone labeling carbon footprint do you think that they should consider – fuel? Equipment manufacture? By-catch? Waste of the animal? Waste for cleaning? How far the markets are from where the food is produced (transportation costs)? Damage done to the local environment? Packaging?

8.      Is there a way to make reducing our carbon footprint easier for the consumer to make an informed choice?

2. Watch the classroom videos is external) and do a storyboard.

3. Use the rubric below to mark a previous student's stop motion which can be found on the right.  Be sure to put at least 150 words worth of comments and suggestions.

3. Day two - story boardDay three - Start taking picturesDay four, five, six... - Take more picturesNext day - Import pictures to E drive in your own folder on that computer, start looking for sounds you need sound effects.  Save the sounds on that same computer and record your own sounds, Background music is external) Sound effects - http://soundbible.Curriculum(link is external)

  1.  Reflection - watch the following video and answer these questions:   How does the background music contribute to the atmosphere of this stop motion video?  Identify foley sounds used.  How do these contribute to giving the illusion of animation of these objects?
  2. Find a 30-60 video that does not rely on spoken word.
  3. Import to Premiere Pro and unlink the video and audio.  Delete the audio.  Replace the background music and foley sounds with your own choice of sounds.  You can choose to re-create the soundscape as it was in the original or do something more creative.  You must include two of your own recorded foley sounds.  All explinations of how to do all this can be found in the tutorial attached below.mport to Premiere Pro and unlink the video and audio.  Delete the audio.  Replace all the music and foley sounds with your own sounds.  You can choose to re-create the piece as it was created or change it with new video.k is external)
