6th grade Science

Monday - This is our week to learn about volcanoes before we visit Mt Saint Helens next week at Camp Cispus!

This is all happening on our 3D GameLab Interface. In order to start the volcano quests students need to have completed the What's a Blog quest and the Blogging with ClassBlogmeister quest. That will unlock the volcano quest chain for them to work on.

HW - There are only a few students in each of the three 6th grade classes that still need to do one or more of the following:

  1. Take your Science Class Parent Handout so that parents can visit my website and complete the contact info survey (it's called Parent Contact Info) as well as join the 6th grade Classroom Facebook Group so they can stay informed about what is going on in class.
  2. Have parents fill out the Informed Consent Agreement (signed BOTH sides), 
  3. Complete and turn in your Cispus Packet (filled out and signed - read through it).

Tuesday - Same as yesterday. Goal for all 6th graders is to start their Volcano quest chain! (Ask them what that is all about.)

Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday - We spent this week working on either getting to the volcano assignments (quests) or working on them. 

HW - Bring your Cispus gear on Monday and be ready to work on Cispus preperatory activities all day Monday!
8th grade Science

Monday - This week students need to start working on the Thinking Like a Scientist activity. Then students can start the NOAA Planet Stewards quests where they will learn about coral reefs, freshwater ecology, marine biology, and fisheries. The learning activities were put together by NOAA scientists! 

All of the above is happening on our 3D GameLab Interface  In order to get to the above quests students need to have completed the What's a Blog and Blogging with ClassBlogmeister quests.

HW - There are only a few students in each of my two 8th grade classes that still need to show parents the Science Class Parent Handout so their parents can take the parent survey (it's called Parent Contact Info) and join the 8th grade Classroom Facebook Group (students too if they have a Facebook account - don't worry if you don't!) to keep informed of what's happening in class.

Tuesday - Same as yesterday. Goal for 8th graders is to get to and complete the Think Like a Scientist activity so they can work on the NOAA quests.

Wednesday - Same as yesterday.

HW - Same as Monday

Thursday - Introduced the Biome project that students will be working on next week while I'm gone with 6th graders to Cispus.

HW - Same as Monday

Friday - Getting 8th graders ready to work on their Biome project next week. All the students chose teams and each team picked a biome to research.

HW - None unless you still have something to finish.
