6th grade Science

Monday - Today we were supposed to be working on, or at least starting, the Lesson 8 lab but many, too many, 6th graders still need to complete their Lesson 7 CER conclusion. 

I might just change the Energy and Forces assessment and start assessing students this week because we need to wrap up this unit so that we can start our Environmental Studies unit. 

I'm also working with students on commenting and responding to each other's learning on their blogs and our Shivtr online discussion forum.


We have also started a world solutions blog and website based on students desire to share their ideas to help solve the problems facing our world! More to come as students start blogging their ideas.

HW - Finish your lesson 7 conclusion if you didn't finish last week or today in class.

Tuesday through Friday - For the rest of the week students will be turning in their Lesson 7 CER conclusions, continue commenting and responding to each other's online work, blogging for our world solutions project, and taking Energy and Forces assessments so that we could wrap up that unit! 

I know! Busy week. :)

This week period 3 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 A - Ask your child if he or she is playing World of Warcraft yet. If your child says no, ask him or her why it's taking so long to finish the pre-game-playing assignments?

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 C

Wednesday - Group B

Thursday - Group A

Friday - Group C
