Science Trivia Competition!! 

  • All answers must be written in your own handwriting, with your first and last name written on your paper.
  • The web address or book where you found the information must be cited on your paper.  
  • Answers can only be submitted to me between the school hours of 7:45 am - 2:40 pm.
  • Prizes will vary by the week.  
Trivia Question!!!

**Be one of the first three people to answer the trivia question to win. Make sure to follow the rules above!!


Topics we will study for fourth quarter:
  • Science safety
  • Scientific Method
  • Diversity of Life

Diversity of Life Learning Targets:

  • Categorize pictures of objects and organisms into living and nonliving groups.
  • Investigate unknown materials by placing them in aquatic environments and observing them for evidence of life.
  • Use the microscope to study layers in a sample and structures of brine shrimp.
  • Draw scale representations of images seen in a microscope to estimate size accurately.
  • Explain how focal plane affects the image seen through a microscope.
  • Observe single-celled microorganisms with a microscope and investigate structure function relationships.
  • Generate evidence to support the idea that paramecia are organisms.
  • Compare microorganisms.
  • Compare structure and function of cells from different organisms.
  • Relate the structure and function of cells, tissues, organs, systems, and organisms.
  • Dissect seeds to discover their structures.
  • Investigate the effect of light on germinated seeds.
  • Compare the development of two groups of complex plants-- monocots and dicots.
  • Design an experiment to determine what happens to water in a celery stalk.
  • Collect and analyze data to develop evidence for an explanation for how water enters a plant’s roots and flows through the plant during transpiration.
  • Relate transpiration to the water cycle
  • Investigate the structure-function relationships of plant flowers.
  • Make observations to develop a general model of how seeds disperse.
  • Explain how seed-dispersal mechanisms contribute to a plant’s survival.
  • Design and conduct an experiment safely and appropriately, using a living organism,
  • Collect data and draw conclusions.
  • Determine the difference between scientific observations and inferences.
  • Design and conduct an experiment safely and appropriately, using a living organism.
  • Collect data and draw conclusions.
  • Relate structure to function in an insect.
  • Use lab procedures to inoculate agar plates with bacteria and fungi from natural sources.
  • Make observations and collect data to draw conclusions.
  • Compare bacteria and fungi to plants, animals, and protists.
