Upper School News: August 29 – September 2, 2016

Biology

We have had a great first 2 weeks of school and all students are working hard. This week in Honors Biology we have been studying the 8 Characteristics that all organisms must possess to be considered living.  During our enhanced days, students have each chosen an animal that is native to the state of Tennessee to research and identify living characteristics. On Wednesday, all students participated in an Earthworm lab. Students observed the behaviors of the earthworm when exposed to different stimuli. In AP Biology, students designed their own experiment to test the effects of a change in the environment on an organism, they also used the earthworms as the test subject. Dual Enrollment Animal Science is off and running. This weeks students have studied food-borne illnesses. They have research how bacteria is spread and participated in a virtual lab investigation of a outbreak.
