Assessment Time in Biology

Yaaay! We have started our assessment about Homeostasis already! Tuesday, typical day. The day started with a bit of a shower for nature. It's still spitting while I'm typing. Looking outside the field looks really empty without the students out there playing. Anyways, back to Biology class. So the way that our Biology teacher, Miss Wells, makes us do our assessment is that she gives 20 minutes to write or research all we can about our assessment and then after 20 minutes we have a break to either play a game or just carry on with our assessment. We just finished our break playing a random picking name and then we either win something or do something silly. By silly I mean do the chicken dance or play an imaginary sport. LOL. I stopped typing so now we just finished playing :) about general knowledge. And that's about it for Biology :) I had fun. Thank You to Miss Wells for a very productive day of learning.

Reliever Time

Today our Biology teacher was not at school, so we had a reliever. To me it's not good for my actual teacher to not be there. Because if my actual teacher is not there, I don't do my work. But I'm trying to learn independently knowing that one day I will have to learn that way in the future. So that means I didn't do any work today! SORRY Miss Wells! :(

Anyways, I'll update my blog and try to recapture what we did last Thursday. :) We also had a reliever last Thursday, but I did half of my work :)

What did we do last Thursday? Ohh right!
We had to look at pictures of students from last year going on a trip to Tongariro. Then we had read the little description Miss Wells wrote under all the pictures. After reading that we were led to a site to learn either osmoregulation or thermoregulation. I chose to learn about osmoregulation. Osmoregulation is the controlling of water content in the body. This is controlled to protect cells by avoiding too much water entering or leaving them. Water content is controlled by water loss from:

  • the lungs when we exhale
  • the skin by sweating
  • the body, in urine produced by the kidneys

Then after learning about the choice we chose, we had to complete a survey testing us to see if we actually learnt something. Also we had to do some work in our Biozone, but I didn't do it because I didn't get it so I did all the online stuff. :)

Task - Treatment

This is what we were doing today in class. Our amazing Biology teacher made a fake hospital admission chart, and we had to fill out the chat as you can see.

Introduction to Biology

Hi! My name is Rita Fusitu'a. 
I am a Year 13 student currently attending Tamaki College. 
This year I take Biology as one of my options considering my future plans in University. 

The first thing that we are supposed to do in class is to talk about what we know about Diabetes.
Just to let you know that I haven't fully learnt anything about Diabetes, so I'm deeply sorry if anything I mention below is wrong.

 This is just the start of our Biology class and we had to do this.
There are two types of Diabetes that I know of. Type 1 and Type 2.
Type 1 is the type of Diabete that people are born with and have to live the rest their lives with. Type 2 is when some people just eats too much sugar, their diet is not on point, and they just eat too much, most above their forties.

That's all I know about Diabetes. I'm sure some of it is wrong but at least I tried.
Thank You for wasting your time reading this post :)
