Creative Writing

New Learning and Improvement (Enzymes and Technology skills): This assignment is a webquest about enzymes. This webquest had us learn more technology skills by playing around with different functions on each website and helped us learn how enzymes can speed up chemical processes and gave us specific examples of enzymes.

New Learning and Improvement (Movement of Molecules): This lab experiment included grapes and multiple types of liquids. This helped me learn how molecules can go in and out of the cell.

New Learning and Improvement (Microscopy): This lab was all about taking a closer look at onion roots. This helped me understand how to use a microscope better.

New Learning and Improvement (Chemistry of Living Thing): This assignment was for a Canva project where we had to come up with analogy for cell organelles. This helped me understand what each organelle does because I could compare it to something that I am very familiar with.

Honors Biology Reflection

New Learning and Improvement (Macromolecules): In this lab, we had to test a murder victim's last meal to find out where he last ate. Not only did this teach us about macromolecules but it also taught us what forensic scientists do in their jobs.

Achievement (Summer Reading): Over the summer, we had to read a book that was about a specific part of biology. After reading, we had to create a movie trailer on animoto. This represents one of my achievements because I feel that I did a very good job and I learned how to create/edit videos.

New Learning and Improvement (Scientific Writing): This piece of writing is one of our first conclusions of the year. It helped us understand what was expected every time we wrote a conclusion

Passion or Engagement: The first day of school, we had to take a selfie with the play dough model of something that we loved. I created a saxophone to show my love of band. Because of this fun activity, I readied myself for a fun class full of experiments and hard work.

Achievement (Study skills and learning new information): This picture shows one of my achievements because I have a decent grade. This class is by far the most challenging class I've ever had and I've been learning how to study more efficiently.

New Learning and Improvement (Photosynthesis):This lab experiment was called the elodea photosynthesis lab. The green liquid was acidic because we blew carbon dioxide into the beaker. The next day, we checked the test tubes and they turned blue because there was more oxygen in the tube.

Magazine cover

New Learning and Improvement: This represents new learning and improvement because it helped me learn about how water acts as a solution for living things. The lab experiment was very fun and it made me become more interested in the subject.
