Once you've completed your two webquest activities, please answer the following questions:1) Compare both of your results.     a) Are they the same? In your opinion, what might have led to variations in the results?     b) Which set of results do you feel best represents your personal footprint? Why?        (You can refer to them as test #1 and test #2 if that helps.)2) What factors/resources do you think were the most responsible for your results? (For example, do you think your footprint was most affected by the amount of kilometers your drive, the food you eat, the amount of land your house is on, etc...)3) Name 3 specific things you could do to lower your personal footprint (Hint: "I will drive less" is not a specific goal!).4) Do you think ecological footprint calculators are good tools for people to use when trying to determine their environmental impact, or are they confusing and perhaps even misleading?5) Go online and do a search for another ecological footprint calculator.    a) What site did you use? Write out the URL here.    b) How did this one compare to the ones assigned to you to try?

Hi guys - I've attached the webquest instructions for use in the computer lab today.  Print the form if you need to, or use it straight from the website. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully and print your results. Ask for help if you need it!

Here are the notes for chapter 4, as well as the review for the test. The test is on Friday. 
Here are the noets for chapter 3.  There will be an in-class assignment on this material today.  Those who do not finish in class, or who will be absent for the Env. Sci. field trip should plan to have this completed and handed in by Tuesday. Enjoy your Thanksgiving week-end!  
I've attached the notes for chapter 2, including the lesson on the steps of meiosis (with pictures!).
I've attached the Power Point template to be used for your issues presentations.   If you don't have Power point at home, I suggest teh following steps:-  Print the template so you have the instructions contained within- download "Open Office" - a free software program available online to create documents, spreadsheets and presentations aids.  you can use the presentation aid as needed. Alternately - you can plan to do all your work while at school (in class and at lunch in the library), or use Notebook software if you have it. I've also attached the rubric by which the presentation will be graded.     Happy researching everyone!  I look forward to your presentations!
