Here are the instructions/options I give my Biology I class in terms of activities due for EACH unit. Each unit consists of 2-3 Chapters of our Biology I Text. Choice/Anchor activities have a points total listed and there must be a total of 60 pts received for each Unit in this category. Harder activities are given higher point values.
There are options for bonus and I have also included instruction/details about each assignment. I have not yet posted my all inclusive "Student Resource Notebook for individual Units" materials yet but will do so in the future.
Most activities are to be finished inside the pages of their scientific (or Inquiry or Interactive) notebooks.
These are GENERIC activities that can be used with any book. There will be some extra work needed to fill in a few of the lesson ideas, page numbers, etc. from your textbook.
I am currently using Biology by Prentice Hall and Biology by Litrell, Holt McDougal.
Although I made this instruction sheet for my Biology I class it is fully editable and can be formulated to fit many classes including: chemistry, environmental science, botany, history, math, algebra, social sciences, sociology, psychology, etc
