    Hope everyone had a good day off.  The tests from last week have been posted in the gradebook.  We have now started classification.  We started with tools we use to classify different organisms including cladograms and dichotomous keys.  We will move onto how we name and organize organisms and then go into the different domains and kingdoms of organisms.  This includes a discussion on viruses versus bacteria.  We currently have a prime casestudy on infectious diseases going on right now,  the coronavirus. I have posted articles in my links page and ask that you discuss these topics with your children.  A big focus will be on taking a break from social media if they are feeling anxious.  To discuss with you theiir feelings, look at our circles of control and rely on scientific sites. We will discuss be proavtive instead of reactive.
