Biology Project Self Evaluation

The biology teacher asked, after the presentation of the project, to post a self evaluation of our work on it.

I was the first one who got the potato, I didn’t like at all at first, but then I got used to it. I took three photos of it and posted them on my blog. After that, I gave the potato to Matias Campion who also took photos of it. We began to have trouble because we were confused when to post the photo of the potato. Matías Campion gave the potato to Matias Hartmann and he posted some photos too. As I said before we didn’t know exactly when to post the photo of it because we lost the count of the days. The potato grew a lot since it was given out to us. The roots are a lot larger and the kind of plant it had is larger to. All of us left the potato on a plastic bowl with water. The first days and the last ones didn’t grew very much, it grew the most when Mati Campion had it. It was an interesting project and it was interesting seeing the potato growing just by putting water in it. At first I didn’t like the potato at all, but at the end I liked the project very much. I think we did a good work, but we failed a little bit on posting the photos, we could have posted more photos and measure the potato to see how it grew in a better way.

Biology Potato Project Last Day

This is the last day of the Biology Potato Project. We took the last photo of it. It grew a lot since the first day, specially the roots are larger. In this photo the roots seem shorter because of the lack of water, but in another photos you could see how they grew. Also, you can see how the plant it had also grew a lot. We did a chart in google documents to show the growing of it in a more organized way. Here is the photo of it:

Biology Project Day 1

In the last biology class the teacher gave us to choose between a potato or an onion to take to our homes a see how they grew. The work is in groups of three, I am with Mati Hartmann and Mati Campion. Mati Hartmann is the facilitator, Mati Campion the secretary and I am the presentator. Today is the first day, every two days we have to give the potato to another group member and take a photo of it and post it in our blogs. This is the photo of it.

Biology Assessment

For the last Biology class we had to make a project choosing one of the teacher’s projects that she left on her Blog. The day of the presentation we had to assess the groups that presented based on a rubric that the teacher left on her blog. I worked with Manu Carrizo and Lucas Vorbeck. Manu was the one who bought the cake and we made it at his home. We took the information from photos from the internet and the biology book  we use in class. The only problem we had was deciding the size of the cake, but we think it was good at the end.

Here is the assessment that I made:

Group 1:  23/28

Group 2:  23/28

Group 3:  21/28

Group 5:  24/28

Group 6:  22/28

Group 7:  22/28

Group 8:  26/28

Biology – Animal Cell information

In the last Biology classes we were learning more about the cells. We were divided into groups and each group had to choose between doing an activity with animal cells or plants cells. I worked with Manu Carrizo and Lucas Vorbeck. We had to choose between the activities Ceci, our teacher, left on her Blog.  Before doing the activities we had to post information about animal cells or plant cells.  We had to show what they have and how they work.

Here is a drawing I made of an Animal Cell.

The Animal Cells are multicellular and Heterotrophs. They do not have cell walls or chloroplasts. They also do not have chlorophyl. They have a cell membrane, a nucleus, mitochondria and cytoplasm. Sugar is produced in the mitochondria. Also, the nucleus contains chromosomes. The nucleus contains the DNA of the living organism too. That is the basic information about the Animal cell.
