- Fast plant argument due to Schoology by 8am tomorrow. No corrections are allowed. If you need more time, send me an e-mail tonight. No penalty for requesting additional time!
Today we wrote our arguments on if our fast plants are monocots are dicots. To help us do this, we looked over a reading (download it below) that listed other ways to identify a monocot or dicot. We spend the rest of time in class writing our paragraph(s). Writing the paragraph is pretty straight forward. First, make your claim (is the fast plant a monocot or dicot?). Second, provide evidence that you have actually observed on the fast plant. Third, analyze that evidence (how does it support your claim?). Repeat the second and third steps until you have 3 pieces of evidence. Here's an example evidence/analysis for the corn we observed: "The corn's leaves had parallel veins. Monocots have parallel veins in the leaves and dicots have branching veins in the leaves." The evidence is quickly stated and the analysis easily connects the evidence to the claim (corn is a monocot). Please work on your argument for the fast plant. You can reference your pictures on your iPad to help you! Do not use any evidence you do not have (ex: if you didn't observe the stem of the fast plant, don't use it as evidence!). I'm including some pictures below in case you need them.
You did not receive any handouts today, but you did receive a reading resources. Pictures of the fast plant are also included below.
