Monday - Today I handed out Tree Planting permission slips. Sixth graders have the opportunity to go plant trees across the street with NOSC next Thursday, Jan 14!

We are going to continue working on Lesson 5 today, Inquiry 5.2 on the Force of Gravity.

HW - Turn in your filled out and signed Tree Planting Permission Slip as soon as you can. The sooner the better because Mr. G needs a count to let NOSC know how many kids will be attending (and how many need to be left behind). Permission slips are due this Friday, Jan 8!

Tuesday to Friday - This week we will finish Lesson 5 (Inquiry 5.1 was on elastic force and Inquiry 5.2 is on the force of gravity). Once students complete the Elastic Force and Gravity quest they will be able to start working on the Simple Machines part of their Market Day booth next week!

We will also take some time this week on Friday to watch the nine finalist videos for the Ocean 180 contest. Our students will vote for their top three favorite Ocean Science videos along with schools from all over the country to select the top Ocean Science video!

Here are the 3D GameLab quests students need to be completing this week and next to stay caught up:

  1. Battery Charging Time
  2. Energy
  3. Lesson 4, Question 2
  4. Energy Saving Light Bulb!
  5. The RiverXchange Part 2
  6. Elastic Force and Gravity
  7. Gravity and Falling Objects
  8. Simple Machines
  9. Ocean Science

This week period 1 will do the fish trapping activity. Students will set traps on one day then retrieve the traps the next day to identify and count any fish we catch. We will return the fish to the creek and record the counts to send to the Jefferson Conservation District.

HW - Tree Planting Permission Slip due today! Let me know if you are planning on going if your permission slip is not turned in because Mr. G will be making arrangements for those who cannot go.

Monday - Group A - We are four weeks away from the end of the 1st semester! That means that we're almost half way through our school year! 

So far 10 6th graders in Group A are playing WoW, 8 in Group B and 2 in Group C. For those who are not yet playing WoW their goal is to get all their preliminary work done so they can start playing the game and getting imersed in the story!

This week we will be in the computer lab working hard to start playing the game! Those who are already playing will continue to play while they wait for their classmates to catch up to them.

HW - None, unless you want to get ahead.

Tuesday - Group C.

Wednesday - Group B.

Thursday - Group A.

Friday - Group C.
