The Grade 11 students in IB Biology are learning about the secret of traits and how they are passed on. They have studied all about genes, chromosomes, alleles, diseases that are sex linked and other hereditary diseases and factors. They are skilled to analyse karyograms and read and predict pedigree. As a reflection of their learning, they made these colorful posters. These talk a lot about their collaboration and creativity.
Grade 6 has just finished Cell Biology in which they learnt about the Cell Theory, different types of cells, structure and function of organelles and how to distinguish between different cell types. They learned how to mount their own cheek cells on glass slides and observe them under the microscope. They are a curious bunch and ask very relevant questions that create more learning opportunities. Our Cell biology culminated with baking a cell pizza and then eating it. They hoped to do it more often !
Here are some pictures
The Grade 12 students are at the verge of finishing their Biology SL curriculum. We are learning about nutrition. The daily dietary intake, creating a balanced diet and keeping the deficiency diseases away. We cooked and ate an Indian curry (Butter chicken, onion rice and naan bread- the healthy way) to thoroughly enjoy the lesson. I was delighted to witness the collaboration and proactive attitude of these young IB learners. Going to miss you guys so much !
Dear Grade 11 and 12 students,
Prepare very well for your first semester final exam. Going through the quizzes and formative work will prepare you well to deal with different types of questions. Kindly have a look at the subject guide and study guide, pay attention to the objectives as these prepare you for the kind of questions asked.
As you study hard, do not forget to rest well and keep yourself hydrated (drink lots of water). Move around, stretch yourselves so that you keep yourself going and do not fall asleep. Do not be stressed. Have faith in yourself and finally………. KEEP SMILING
The batch of Grade 11 is a balanced mixture of “fun loving yet serious in studies” pupils. They were challenged by a practical exam to identify and comment on biological specimens that they have been studying about. I am proud to say that all of them excelled. I proudly present my balanced IB Learners
Grade 7 and Grade 9 made Rube Goldberg machines as a part of their alternative assessment in the first Quarter. It was a fun task for them. They thought hard and came up with great ideas ! They had to make the magnet attract a paper clip. Memories to share :)
The Grade 11 Biology (HL and SL)students are putting all their efforts to prove that they are not only open minded knowledge seekers but highly principled individuals and excellent communicators. They are on their way to acquire expertise on Cell Biology. They learnt about discovery of cells, structure and function of cells, organelles, structure and function of cell membranes, cell division and Stem Cell research. Hope they can make use the knowledge gained for the benefit of mankind one day and make us proud.Here are some microscopic observations.
The Water Benders of Grade 7 are working on building a River System model in which they show a watershed, a divide, tributaries and a river. They exhibited remarkable creativity , knowledge, perfection and speed to finish this model within just three blocks. Here are glimpses of their work and presentations. Good Job Waterbenders !
Grade 11 Biology SL students were studying about Ecology and Evolution this quarter. They explored the concepts of ecology and evolution and learnt how important it is to reduce the carbon foot print ! Their presentations were interesting and informative. The presentations strongly endorsed the IB attributes of the creators as good communicators and thinkers.
