Objective(s):
Understand and Use a Self-Directed Model of Examining learning
Develop correct microscopy skills
Visualize and Identify cells and tissue structures found in living things
Photograph and prepare an entry for the Image competition

Agenda:
1) Here's a really neat and tidy webpage with some great basic cell information to use to study before you choose to take your quiz. To use Quizlet, you will need to join via an account and I will invite you to join my class. Once this step is done, you can study using the study set and take the quiz in class when you are ready. EXAM DUE DATE = Tuesday, November 25.
2) Science Research Project Peer Editing Activity -Peer Editing Worksheet and Sample Reading
3) Continue to Work on Microscopy

Homework:
Use Quizlet to study for test
Complete the Peer Editing Worksheet for the Sample Reading
