As you know from my Daily YouTube Update I am not the proud caretaker of a salamander name “Spots”. Your job, using the outcomes and pointers below, is to create a plan to care for the salamander. Your plan can be presented in any way you choose; this includes a list, diagram, paragraphs, how to video or a combination of these methods.
7-1-02 Define ecosystem, and describe various examples that range from the microscopic to the entire biosphere.
Include: a place on Earth where living things interact with other living things as well as non-living things
7-1-03 Identify abiotic and biotic components of ecosystems that allow particular organisms to survive.
Things to consider:
- What does it eat?
- What does it need for shelter/ as a living space?
- What does it like as far as light, temperature and moisture?
- What types of vegetation does it like?
- What things does it like?
- What things does it dislike?
- What should my plan be for releasing the salamander?
Good luck! Spots depends on you!

The rocks you choose should be about the size of a golf ball and fairly different from one another (various colors, textures, etc.) .

Today we are looking at probability. Your job is to compare Theoretical Probability with Experimental Probability. Theoretical Probability is what should happen and Experimental Probability is what actually happens. These numbers are written as fractions with the number of occurrences on top and the number of trials on the bottom. So if I flip a coin twice and I get heads once that is written as 1/2.
You will need a coin, a 6 sided dice and a homemade spinner with paper, a pen and a paperclip.
Task 1- If I flip a coin 50 times I should see heads 25 times according to theoretical probability (Written 25/50) . Your first task is to flip the coin 50 times to see how many times you get heads. That number will be your experimental probability. Write down your findings.
Task 2- If I roll a six-sided dice 24 times I should see any given number 4 times according to theoretical probability (Written 4/24). We are going to choose the number 3. Roll the dice 24 times to see how many times you land on 3. That number will be your experimental probability. Write down your findings.
Task 3- If I spin a 4 section spinner 40 times I should hit each given section 10 times according to theoretical probability (Written 10/40). Mark one square (shade it in, write your name in it, etc.) and spin the spinner 40 times; see how many times you land on the marked square. That number will be your experimental probability. Write down your findings.
Please complete the Venn Diagram below. You will need to research facts about each of the countries and compare the countries/facts in order to find out where they go. Please include your source(s). If you are unable to print or use the PDF please just make fact lists on a separate sheet; 5 about Canada, 5 about Australia and 4 that they have in common. Let the learning begin!CanAus Venn

Today’s Daily Lesson is an extension or continuation of yesterday’s lesson. If you didn’t submit a picture and write up for an object that’s OK; you can still participate in this portion of the lesson.
Read the PDF below and try to figure out if the objects your classmates chose match their description or if they are lying. Copy and paste the list of names into an email and place REAL or FAKE beside their name. If you believe their description is fake please write what you think the object ACTUALLY is. Please send the email to me with the title April 23rd Daily Lesson.
Today’s assignment is to find an object in your home (yard, shed, garage, etc.) to share with your classmates. The object should be one that not many people are familiar with.
- In 3 sentences please explain what the object does to your classmates. Your explanation can either be real OR fake. Be convincing either way!
- Please attach a photo(s) of your object. You may need more than one to show different angles but it isn’t required.
Tomorrow I will share the pictures and explanations; you will be tasked with deciding whether your classmates are telling the truth or not.

Today’s lesson comes directly from the brand new ELA Curriculum. The outcome states:
“Learners are recognizing that one’s identities are influenced by various factors and change over time and context.”
In 3-5 sentences please explain how/ if this experience (living through a pandemic, social distancing, etc) has changed who you are.
Things you may want to consider are:
- Things you might appreciate more
- Things you have learned to live without
- Things you will do more/less when this is over
- Things you understand better
