    Posted by Cheryl Bruno on 4/9/2019

    Homebase-

    • Morning group or
    • Review for LOT

    Science

    • LOT on Geology and Evolution
    • Spiral #7
      • Here's the Periodic Table to help with the chemistry questions
      • Reminders-
        • the A family number tells the number of valence electrons
        • the Period number tells the number of shells/orbitals/energy levels for the atom
        • Metals are malleable, ductile, and good conductors; non-metals are brittle, dull, and poor conductors;metalloids have characteristics of both metals and nonmetals and are usually semiconductors
        • Atomic number is the number of protons and also equals the number of electrons
        • Neutron M-AN 
        • Most reactive elements are the F words (Fluorine and Francium)
        • When writing a formula, a subscript is used to tell when more than one atom of an element is needed.  So, if a compound has 4 atoms of potassium and one atom of carbon, the formula would be   K4C
        • Read the review info for Elements, Compounds, etc. to help with those questions.
        • For the Ecology/hydrosphere section, use the food web for all of the questions.
        • For the OR questions, write one of the word in bold print as your answer.

      • pesticide and bugs- E best explains
    • Extra Credit- For the last section (pesticide and bugs) identify the adaptation, how the bugs got the adatation, and draw another generation (showing types of bugs and what happens before and after pesticide is applied.)  Write all this at the bottom of the page.  Show to Ms. Bruno tomorrow.
