It´s the end of the world as we know it....and I feel fine.
These are the contents of the Final Exam: good luck, mate.
Recordar que en esta Unidad veremos las dos primeras partes del cuadernillo sobre sexualidad.
El examen es largo y la unidad se da en castellano. No lo dejéis para el último día. Una vez acabemos esta unidad, sólo nos quedará la parte de Geología. Prestad mucha atención al examen porque sólo hay dos exámenes este trimestre. ¡Suerte!

This Unit is about the Nervous Systmen and Endocrine System. We will include a talk about drugs. It is a short but complicated Unit as the topic is not easy. It is the first time that we will study the Hormones deeper. There are lots of new names, glands names and functions. As usual, pay attention to the attached power point, the black letters of the text book and all the names.
The first laboratory practice in the Biology lab its been about the disection of a heart and lungs of a lamb. In this practice we have seen the auricles and ventricles of a heart, the main vessels such as the aorta artery and the cava vein. It was interesting to observe also the atrioventricular valves. About the lungs, we observed the trachea, bronchi, and pulmonar tissue. This practice included Units 4 and 5 of our text book. We had even the chance to touch all the organs!
This first term practical exercise was about separation techniques for mixtures.
As you know, to separate heterogeneous mixtures we can use filtration and decantation and to separate homogeneous mixtures distillation and crystallization can be used.
All the pupils had to make a video by groups explaining how these separation techniques work. Here we can watch one of these videos.

This Unit is very important for our diet and health. We will study the types of foods and energetic requierements of our bodies. We will make a work about diets and will be part of the final note. Even you will never study biology again, is an important lesson for anyone. We all eat on daily basis so we all must know few concepts about this. Please study the Unit hardly as this is one of the easiest units of this course. Good chance to reach a good mark!
The nutrition is the intake of ANYTHING we need to live: not just food but also water and oxygen (respiration).
This video can be very useful:
Here you can find also the power point of the Unit.
