Assignment 3

BIOLOGY COLLECTION

 For this part of your summer assignment, you will be familiarizing yourself with science terms that we will be using at different points throughout the year. On the next page is the list of terms.

Each item is worth 2 points. You must earn 100 points by Friday August 26. You are required to post 5 photos each week:

 § Earn 100 points by “collecting” 50 items from the list of terms.

When I say “collect”, I mean you should collect that item by finding it and taking a photograph (digital) of that item. You will post your photographs with appropriate explanations / descriptions on the AP Biology Blog.

 2.            YOU CAN BE CREATIVEIf you choose an item that is internal to a plant or animal, like the term “phloem”, you could submit a photograph of the whole organism or a close up of one part, and then explain on the blog what phloem is and specifically where phloem is in your specimen.

3.            ORIGINAL PHOTOS ONLY: You cannot use an image from any publication or the Web. You must have taken the photograph yourself. Please include your 2012-2013 AHS ID in each picture with your name showing.

4.            NATURAL ITEMS ONLY: All items must be from something that you have found in nature. Take a walk around your yard, neighborhood, and town. DON’T SPEND ANY MONEY! Research what the term means and in what organisms it can be found… and then go out and find an example.

5.            TEAM WORK: You may work with other students in the class to complete this project, but each student must turn in his or her own project with a unique set of terms chosen. So working with other students means brainstorming, discussing, going on collecting trips together. It doesn’t mean using the same items! There are almost 100 choices… probability says there is a very slim chance that any two students will have the same items chosen for their 100 points… and I believe in the statistics!

6.            DESCRIPTIONS: Please be accurate and detailed in your descriptions. Brief, layman descriptions will lose points. *spelling counts!

7.            ALBUM: As a final project for this you and a partner (in your class period) will need to take the BEST representations of the pictures and descriptions you have and create an album or photo-book that has the pictures and the descriptions of the pictures as captions.  This will be your final AP project and will be due AFTER the AP exam in May. This will be graded on creativity and accuracy,  but you will be able to use ONLY the pictures on the blog, so think ahead. 

NOTE TO THE WISE: plastic/fake items do not count. Get out there! 

BIOLOGY COLLECTION TERMS

Below are the items you are to “collect”. An individual organism can only be used once. Humans are acceptable for one category only. You must take all photos yourself; no Internet photos!

GROUPINGS

Each specimen in a category is worth 2 points up to a total of 5 specimens in the category. Except where noted every specimen must be native to Florida.

1.Different biomes (only 3 must be within FL)

2.Different types of carbohydrates

3.Different classes of proteins

4.Evidence of different alleles for the same trait

5.Distinguishing characteristics between monocots & dicots

6.Organisms in different kingdoms

7.Organisms in different animal phyla


 

INDIVIDUAL ITEMS
