Welcome Senior 5! New year, new project …

Let´s start with our new project!

TOPIC: CORONAVIRUS THREATENING THE WORLD

PROBLEM: On 13 January 2020, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), from Thailand reported the first imported case of lab-confirmed novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) from Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
The case is a 61-year-old Chinese woman living in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. On 5 January 2020, she developed fever with chills, sore throat and headache. On 8 January 2020, she took a direct flight to Thailand from Wuhan City together with five family members in a tour group of 16 people. The traveler with febrile illness was detected on the same day by thermal surveillance at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), Thailand, and was hospitalized the same day. After temperature check and initial assessment, she was transferred to the hospital for further investigations and treatment.
The patient’s full exposure history is under investigation. She reported a history of visiting a local fresh market in Wuhan on regular basis prior to the onset of illness on 5 January 2020; however, she did not report visiting the Huanan South China Seafood Market from where most of the cases were detected. Samples tested positive for coronaviruses by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) on 12 January 2020. The genomic sequencing analysis performed by Emerging Infectious Diseases Health Science Center, the Thai Red Cross Society (EID-TRC) and the Thai National Institute of Health (Thai NIH), Department of Medical Sciences confirmed that the patient was infected with the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) which was isolated in Wuhan, China.
The virus is spreading to different parts of the world.Countries should be prepared in case of an outbreak.
You must inform the citizens of the disease by preparing leaflets and posters with useful information: structure and features of the virus…is the virus a cell? lifecycle, how to prevent…

Task 1

Group work:
– You are divided into 5 groups
– Search for a news about what is happening with the Coronavirus.
– Group 1: Argentina, G2: Asia, G3: America, G4: Europe and G5: Australia and NZ
– Read the news, higlight those words you do not understand and build a glossary.
– Summarise each paragraph with a word and the whole news with a phrase. These activities should be in a doc created by the group. (Doc 1)

The whole class:
– Create a new doc to share the glossary prepared by each of the groups. (Doc 2)

Hands on!

Virtual period: comparing mitosis and meiosis

Watch the video “Comparing mitosis and meiosis”

a- What is the purpose of meiosis?

b- Where does it take place?

c- Make a drawing showing the parent and daughter cells in mitosis and meiosis.

d- Build a table to show the differences between mitosis and meiosis. You should include: number of chromososmes in parent cells (in human cells) – number of chromosomes in daughter cells – number of daughter cells produced – Is there any variation? – daughter cells genetically identical or different from parent cells

e- Do red blood cells divide by mitosis? Explain your answer.

Enjoy! 🙂

Virtual period PAIR WORK: chromosomes and mitosis

 

 

PAIR WORK: same groups from the activity about STI.

CHROMOSOMES

In this period we are going to learn about the continuity of life. You may have heard words like DNA, genes, inheritance, chromosomes, cell division…. let´s investigate what all these is about!

Watch the video !

 

Activities:

1- a- Make a drawing of a body cell which contains one chromosome.

b- Make a drawing of a body cell which contains one chromosome before cell division.

Explain the difference between them.

2- Explain the difference in the number of chromosomes between a body cell and a gamete.

CELL DIVISION: MITOSIS

Watch THIS video about mitosis.

1- Make a drawing of a cell with 2 chromosomes.

2- Make a drawing of the same cell before cell division.

3. Make a drawing of the daughter cells.

4- Name examples in which mitosis takes place in the human body.

DEADLINE: Monday July 1st

Hands on!
