Monday - Today teams will share the data they collected last week. With everyone's data, we will be able to determine the best way to make our motors lift the most washers they can lift.

Today teams will finish lesson 7 by calculating the amount of force their motors can generate.

HW - Keep collecting pledges for the Choose-A-Thon this Friday (this information was sent home last week)! Here's the pledge form in case you lost it.

Tuesday - In order to complete Lesson 7 and the 3D GameLab quest, students will need to write up their conclusions using the CER method.

Wednesday - Today I will have a sub while I go to Seattle for the Northwest Council for Computer Education (NCCE) conference. Besides attending some great training, I am also presenting a workshop for teachers on using 3D GameLab with their students!

While I'm gone students will be working on their 3D GameLab quests! :) 

Here are the quests students need to complete for the Lesson 7 Lab:
  1. How Strong is Your Motor?
  2. The Force of a Motor
  3. Motor Force Blog
Thursday - Students need to complete Lesson 7 by typing their CER conclusions. Once they are done with their conclusions they can work on their other 3D GameLab quests. Many students are doing very well reading each other blogs and commenting as well as responding to each other's work on our Shivtr class discussion forum.

Friday - Today we will have the Choose-A-Thon fundraiser to raise money to allow CMS to continue to offer Cispus to future 6th graders! 

We should be done by 2nd-period so my 3rd-period class can work on their 3D GameLab Science work today.

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.
6th grade Exploratory
Technology Lit

Monday - 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 immersed in the story! 

Those who are already playing will continue to play and level up their characters in the story.

Students will be working in the computer lab every day this week.

HW - None, unless you are not yet playing World of Warcraft. If you are not yet playing the game, finish the preliminary quests at home so you can start playing.

Tuesday - Group B

Wednesday - Group A

Thursday - Group C

Friday - Group B
