After School Tutoring

Mr. Knight will hold after school tutoring on whichever day a student needs
help. Just make sure to let him know at the start of the day.

During third block, Mr. Knight teaches Biology. The lessons that he teaches all have to do with:

How Ecosystems Change

Mendelian Genetics
Basic Patterns of Human Inheritance

Project Information
Quick Lab- Population Growth- The teacher will facilitate and monitor as students model and graph the population

change in a species over a period of ten years.

Vocabulary Development- Students will define the following terms: estuary, salt marsh, mangrove swamp, Barrier

Island, coral reef.

Using the Figure: Exponential Growth: Students will use an illustration to learn about exponential growth and to

compare it to linear growth.

Newsela Reading- The teacher will assign a reading at the appropriate Lexile and students will complete the

Graphic Organizer- Student will complete graphic organizer on threats to biodiversity.
Construct a karyotype from the metaphase chromosome of a fictitious insect.
Students will complete the lab on Population Research: Isle Royale.
Analyze and conclude: Students will use graph paper and construct moose and wolf population data.
