***CLASS WORK***

1) Finish creating your mnemonic for the body systems.

*Write it on paper #48 ........................................ *Then learn it!..................... *Then on a paper in your binder, from memory, write the "first letters" from your mnemonic........................ *Next, from memory, write the body systems......................... *Check your answers using paper #48 as your key........... *Practice doing this several times!

2) Use this website to get a function (job) for each body system. BODY SYSTEMS: LIVE SCIENCE (Please note: The video talks about the CIRCULATORY system. We are calling it THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM!

***HOMEWORK***

Homework is due THURSDAY.

SCIENCE PERIODS 1 & 2:

I made a mistake (sorry!) and did not number MUSCULAR SYSTEM on paper #48, page 1. You will need to add it into your mneumonic.

If you are confused, don't do anything about the mistake tonight.)

THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE A "TEST" TOMORROW! IF anything, it would be a "HAVE YOU BEEN DOING YOUR HW CHECK QUIZ".

At any time half of the Earth faces the sun. This part has DAY. The other half of the Earth faces away from the Sun. It receives no light. It is dark and has NIGHT.

(This is some more information. ...We have day and night because the Earth rotates. It spins on its axis, which is an imaginary line passing through the North and South Poles. The Earth takes a whole day (24 hours) to makea complete turn. The sun is the source of light for day.)

THE SEASONS AND AXIS TILT

REASONS FOR THE SEASONS

WHY WE HAVE SEASONS

• The Earth’s orbit is nearly circular; this is evidence that seasons are
not caused by changes in Earth’s distance from the Sun.
• Different parts of the Earth have different average temperatures
at the same time; this is evidence that seasons are not caused by
changes in Earth’s distance from the Sun.
• Scientific explanations are based on evidence from investigations.
