How will your mutant come to the rescue of the innocent people of Kelton? Which chromosome mutated and what type of mutation occured that made your mutant hero? Was it a deletion, inversion, substitution mutation? Make sure you explain all of this to the judges. You may have some late nights if your team of scientists are waiting till the end for your presentation. Remember that this project will count for half of your grade. Good Luck!!!!!!!
Time is running out!!!!!!!!!
Packets should be done or almost completed. Don't procrastinate!!!!!! You should have three models representing DNA, Mutations, and your character. Don't forget to show which chromosome mutated. Remember to practice your 6 minute presentation.
Things to consider:
One week is almost over in the academy. Next Friday will be your presentation. When describing the Structure of DNA, use lots of descriptive words describing the makeup and shape. You may use an annotated diagram to describe the monomer of DNA. Describe the different nitrogen bases and what makes up the particular sugar in DNA.
Make sure your group comes up with a plan and time table to get everything done. Spend so much time on packet, models, and presentation materials. Don't wait till the last minute to get everything done!!!!!!!When writing your informative/explanatory parts on your packet, get help from your English teacher. If you write your rough draft on your packet and want to revise it, just retype it on a separate piece of paper and put it in your packet. Always use complete sentences and proper grammar. Don't forget to annotate your character on number 4. Also use lots of color. If you do part of the packet on your visual project for the presentation, then write it on your paper. Don't forget to convert on page 5. Good luck and work hard!!!!!!!
This far in the project, you should be working on your packets and coming up with some idea of your mutant. If materials are needed, please let me know. Also think about how you will present your project: power point, i Movie, trifold,poster, website, or anything else you can imagine. Remember that this is a team effort and you can be discharged from the project if you're not pulling your weight!!!!!! Good Luck with your mutant!!!!
Welcome to day two of Mutant X Academy
Today you will start on your mutant packet. Also think about different ideals that you want for your DNA Model. I put a link to Pinterest on the document page. There are some great ideals. Don't forget to blog today. Tell me what ideals you have and your group ideals. What parts have you contributed to this project? Today we will also be signing contracts for your group.
Make sure you give me a list of materials needed for your models (DNA and Mutations)
Welcome to your first day at the Mutant Academy. Some important things to remember in this project-
