Grade 9_All Sections_Biology_Highlights of the week

Dear Parents,

Greetings!!!!!

This week we started with Plant Nutrition, in this unit students learnt about Transpiration and Translocation. They learnt about the structure and function of Xylem and Phloem, they also studied about the arrangement of vascular bundle in root, stem and leaf. We discussed about the pathway of water from root hair and factors affecting water vapor loss.

Effects of variation of temperature, humidity and light intensity on transpiration rate was also discussed in this unit.

Dear Parents,

Greetings!!!!

This cycle we continued with topic “Ecosystems and ecology” where they learnt about Nutrient cycles. They also studied about assimilation and productivity efficiencies. Students also reflected on their knowledge of ecosystems and human activities.

The students went on a field trip to GNCS Vadodara, where first they went on a safari and observed the biodiversity of that area. They also took soil samples from places and analysed the reason for soil erosion in that area. They visited the observatory and learnt many things. Students enjoyed the trip and learnt many new things related to their curriculum.
