Complete 'Keys' quiz in assessON
Task: Create a dichotomous key to identify the insects

1. Read the guide 'How to make a dichotomous key,' to help you design your insect key
2. Below is the link to the insects you should make your key about
3. Save your completed key into your shared Science dropbox floder
What is the difference between living, non-living and dead? Read Chapter 4.2 'Is it Alive?'to find out
Complete the practical activity 'MRS GREN.'

The Kingdoms
Complete the 'Australian species,' quiz in assesON
Create a presentation about an Australian Species (Portfolio Task). Save your presentation onto your shared Science dropbox # folder
Try the living and non-living quiz. Go to Chapter 4-Resources-Weblinks-'Living or non living quiz.'
Kingdom Fungi
Complete the 'Classifying,' assessON quiz
Try the Chapter 4-Resources-interactivities-'Time out' Kingdoms,' quiz
Test your understanding of the 5 kingdom system of classification. Chapter 4-Resources-Weblinks-'Classifying Life,' Activity
Try the 'Classifying Shapes' activity. You will need an envelope of coloured shapes and the worksheet (link below)
Save your completed worksheet onto your shared Science dropbox folder as 'your name classifying shapes'

Create your own kingdom to species Mnemonic (watch the video to find out what a mnemonic is).
Answer Chapter 4.1 'Think' question 6
Read Chapter 4.4
Look at the Classification powerpoint
Kingdom Plantae
Kingdom Animalia
Kingdom Protista
Kingdom Monera
Use the microscope to look at the single cell photosynthetic organism called Euglena
Bacteria are everywhere!
In this experiment you are going to culture (grow) bacteria from various locations
Fish Dissection
Use your observation and dissecting skills to identify the internal organs and structures of a fish.
1. Watch the fish dissection video
2. Download the fish dissection report worksheet which you should read before the dissection and complete during the dissection

What factors affect the germination of cress seedlings?
Conduct an investigation to find out
Read Chapter 4.8 'Classifying Plants.'
Read Chapter 4.5 'Classification of animals using structural features,' and chapter 4.6 'Meet the vertebrates.'

Classification Systems
Test Yourself

Your team will be carrying out the following investigations:
What is the optimum temperature for yeast to grow http://bit.ly/Yeastexperiment
What is the most effective antifungal agent?
Mushroom spore examination
Mushroom growing
Read chapter 4.4 'Classifying Small Living Things.'
You will need to prepare the following:
A fact sheet on your kingdom.
A presentation on your kingdom. The presentation can take any form such as a prezi, experiment demonstration, poster, webpage, or a combination of different formats.
You and your team are going to become mycologists (scientists who study fungi). You will be doing some intensive study and experiments on fungi, until you are experts on this kingdom. You will then feed back your expert knowledge to the other kingdom teams. You will be working with a teacher who is a specialist in this field.
Your specialist teacher will help and guide you with your fact sheet and presentation
