This week in science:
7th grade will be finishing up their lesson on the rock cycle. Students will take their quiz on Thursday. This week I will be trying out an option system to give students the opportunity to show their comprehension in a different way. Students may choose from a comic strip, quiz or PowerPoint Presentation.
Happy December Everyone!
In 7th grade this week we will be finishing up our study of Sedimentary Rocks and moving into Metamorphic Rocks. We will be working through a foliation demo that uses food to describe the layers! 7th grade girls will be reviewing on Monday and taking a quiz. 7th grade boys can expect their quiz on Wednesday! We have 2 more lessons in our book and then we will begin our study sessions for our chapter test! All homework packets will be due this Wednesday with vocabulary definitions attached to the last page!
In 8th grade we will be putting our 21st century skills to the test by creating presentations on the biomes we learned about last week. Each student will be assigned one biome to research. They will be required to become a botanist, zoologist, and a meteorologist in order to complete this assignment! I am excited to help the students work through finding GREAT sources and learning how to set up a simple and forthcoming presentation. 8th grade will tentatively present on Wednesday and Quiz on the biomes on Thursday. Our Aquatic Ecosystems will round out the week on Friday!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out!
