Welcome to my classroom!
My name is Mic McCormick and I have been teaching for the past 25 years. I currently teach Biology and Horticulture.
Biology - all of our assignments are available on either SAVVAS or MS Teams. From home it will be easiest to log in to skooler.com using your school email and password which gives you access to both of these programs.
Horticulture - for this class we use MS Teams and MyCAERT. Look for assignments on MS Teams which can be easily accessed by logging in to skooler.com.
Snow Day / E-Learning Day - In the event that we have an E-Learning day, the following schedule will be utilized:
1 st - 8:30 to 9:10
2 nd - 9:15 to 9:55
3 rd - 10:00 to 10:40
4 th - 10:45 to 11:25
Lunch 11:30 to 12:15
5 th - 12:20 to 1:00
6 th - 1:05 to 1:45
7 th - 1:50 to 2:30
Students should log in to the meeting on MS Teams to participate in class. In the event they do not have internet access at home, alternate assignments are provided below. Each student received a copy of these to take home and they can all be completed without the use of technology. Students should complete one of the assignments (their choice) for each of the E-Learning days and turn them in when we return to school.
1. If you had to live in a zoo, museum, or library for the rest of your life, which would you choose and why? Write THREE well-developed paragraphs explaining why you made your choice and what you would do while there.
2. Freeze ice in different containers and see how long they melt at room temperature.
Observe every 15 -20 minutes.
Make notations of your observations
Measure the temperature if you have a thermometer
3. Create a crossword puzzle with 15 vocabulary words from the current unit. Clues must be in complete sentences. Include both the finished puzzle and an answer key.
4. Look outside and observe three different living things (at least one animal and at least one plant). Write THREE well-developed paragraphs describing what you see and how these organisms are able to survive the weather on this day.
5. Create an animal with adaptations that would allow it to survive the harshest snowstorm. Draw your animal on paper. Be sure to include labels and an explanation for each adaptation
