6th grade Science

Monday - Today 6th graders will assess their learning about volcanoes. Those that didn't start the volcano project or didn't finish the volcano project can work on it at home or in class if they finish their daily work.

Here are the standards and learning targets for volcanoes.

HW - None if you are done with Type that Volcano and Type that Lava. Type that Eruption is also a good one to do to finish that series. Class time can also be used to complete those assignments.

Tuesday - Yesterday 6th graders in all three classes were needing more time with the volcano quests so we're spending another day working on those. I don't mind giving students more time to work on something that they are enjoying learning about!

HW - Just the volcano quests. The Mt Saint Helens quests are great to explore further and see all that the USGS volcano website has to offer. These are optional and offered for fun if kids are interested in learning more about Mt Saint Helens.

Wednesday - Still working on volcano quests.

HW - Only the volcano quests if you want to work on them at home.

Thursday - Today we will be switching gears to the topic of energy! We will start our study of energy by thinking about batteries and what students already know about batteries.

HW - Same as before.

Friday - Today 6th graders will be building a battery! This is part of our Energy, Machines, and Motion energy unit. lesson 2. It's pretty cool!

HW - Just volcano quests if you're not done with those. Then take the self-assessment. This can be done in class as well for those who can't work on these at home.
8th grade Science

Monday through Friday - Eighth graders are still working on the Biome Project. If teams haven't written their script or started their movie they need to catch up because they've had two weeks already to do their research. This is the third week of this project and the last week (hopefully).

Thursday the project test and self-assessment is up and ready for those teams that are done.

So Friday is a tentative deadline for this project to get movies filmed, edited, uploaded and embedded on blogs so that we can start watching each other's movies and giving each other feedback.

HW - None if your research is all done and your team is starting to film the movie.
Email me with any questions.
