Honors Summer Homework

Welcome to TJ biology!!!!  To help ease the transition into starting high school all entering ninth graders who will be taking science (Honors Biology or Earth Science) at Thomas Jefferson High in Fall 2019 will complete the summer homework below.

  1.  Access hyperlinks to Khan Academy videos about biology.
  2. Watch the videos and type a one paragraph summary (5-7 sentence paragraph) for each video.  As will ALWAYS be the case in my class for the entire year- NEATNESS COUNTS.  I prefer you type your paper, but it may be handwritten if your writing is legible.
  3. Due in class Friday, August 23.

It is important to complete this assignment during the summer because you will be receiving other assignments in that first week and you do not want to start the year behind

Video 1:  The Scientific Method

Video 2:  Elements and Atoms

Video 3:  Carbon as a building block of life
