6th grade Science

Monday - As kids settle into using 3D GameLab to complete their assignments, here are the assignments (quests) that all students should have done by now so that we can start the Mt Saint Helens work:
  1. What is this? (This is the very first quest that starts off 6th grade Science.)
  2. Let's Go Camping (Whether kids went to Cispus or did the stay at home packet that week, they can complete this quest to get credit for their hard work.)
  3. What's a Blog? 
  4. Blogging in Science (Numbers two and three helps students set up their Science blog.)
  5. Tech Use (This one lets students know the guidelines for using technology in class.)
  6. Lab Safety (This one shows students how to be safe when we do Science labs.)
  7. Notebooking (This one helps students get their Science notebooks all setup and ready to go.)
  8. Shivtr (This one helps students setup their accounts on our online class discussion forum.)
  9. Class Promises (This one is for students to evaluate how well they are behaving in class.)
Once students complete all of the above they can start on the following Mt Saint Helens assignments (quests):
  1. Save Palgren! (This quest helps students learn about different volcano types.)
  2. What did you learn about MSH? (This one helps students finish and/or check their Cispus Mt Saint Helens trip book page.)
  3. Active Volcano
  4. Mt Saint Helens Rebuild?
  5. Seismic Activity
  6. Is Mt Saint Helens Catastrophic?
So there we have it. This week students will be working on the Mt Saint Helens quests listed above. I will give them this week and if they need more time we will continue to work on those next week as well.

HW - We have a little over half of our 6th-grade families signed up for Bloomz! We're almost there! If you haven't signed up yet, please do.

Tuesday (Early Release) - Same as above.

Wednesday (Early Release) Same as above.

Thursday and Friday - Same as above.
6th grade Exploratory
Technology Lit

Monday - Group C - Students are working on the assignments that will prepare them to play World of Warcraft in class!

Once enough kids in class have completed their preliminary work, we will meet in the computer lab so that those who are ready can begin the game.

HW - None, unless you want to work on your quests at home to get ahead or get caught up if you fall behind.

Tuesday - Group A - Same as Monday.

Wednesday - Group B - Same as Monday.

Friday (double period) - Group C - This group will continue the work they started on Monday. If enough students complete the preliminary work then maybe we can start to meet in the computer lab next week!
