Monday - Today Mrs. Clifford, our school counselor, had students complete a survey to rank exploratory classes for next year. As Mrs. Clifford works on the schedule for next year she will try to get students into classes they prefer for 5th and 6th period Exploratories! Ask your child what they chose for next year.

In Science, we are done going down to the creek for Water Quality testing (click here to see pictures)! Now it's time to graph the data and analyze it to see what's going on in our creek. Students will work in their teams to learn what their parameters mean so they can see what the data is telling us.

In addition to graphing and analyzing data, in each team, there is a student learning about Ocean Acidification, one learning about the Water Cycle, one learning about Invasive Species, and one learning about Salmon. They each have different activities to complete.

HW - None if you are all caught up.

  • Salmon
  • Invasive Species
  • Ocean Acidification
  • Water Cycle
In addition to the above topics, every team will learn about two water quality parameters. 

Period 1 is ready to start going down to the creek, as long as it's not raining, to start collecting data!

I am still training teams in Periods 2 and 3 on how to use the equipment we have so that they can start collecting data on our creek's dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, turbidity and flow rate.

It really helps when teams are on task and working, otherwise it takes longer to get all the teams trained and they will may not get down to the creek as often.

Monday - We still have students who have NOT completed their Water Pollution Public Service Announcements. We started working on those March 6. I can't wait any longer and must begin training teams on how to use the water quality testing equipment so we can start collecting data on our creek's water quality for this year. Those who need more time to complete their Water Pollution Public Service Announcements need to finish at home.

Teams who finished their PSA's are working on the next phase of our Environmental Stewardship Project. In each team, students will be studying one of the following to become the team expert in that field:
  • Salmon
  • Invasive Species

Wednesday to Friday - Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I will be attending the NCCE Educational Technology conference in Portland, Oregon! The district is sending me and another teacher to represent Chimacum and learn as much as we can (I will be presenting a session on using 3D GameLab!) so I will have a sub for the rest of this week.

Students will be working on their water pollution Public Service Announcements while I am gone. The goal is that they finish their announcement, submit it to me by sharing their Google Docs and blog posts, and then work on other 3D GameLab quests!

Monday - Students were supposed to have completed the Water Pollution Intro quest last week. All they had to do was to draw their idea of a healthy creek system and write what Environmental Stewardship means in their own words. Those who did not complete that last week have fallen behind.

Last week students were supposed to begin researching water pollution on the Water Webquest by answering the six questions.

HW - Get your field trip Permission Slips signed and turned in ASAP so you don't forget!

If you have fallen behind, do some of your water pollution research at home so you can start writing your Public Service Announcement this week.

Tuesday and Wednesday - We will be on a Late Start/Early Release schedule. Students should be wrapping up their water pollution research so they can start preparing for the next stage of this project - writing Water Pollution Public Service Announcement!

Thursday and Friday - Students should be working on their Water Pollution Public Service Announcements. They get to write those as a team using shared Google Docs.

This week period 2, Group C, will set the fish traps one day, then return the next day to ID and count any fish we catch in the traps. We always return the fish to the creek.

Monday - Today student teams will start a water pollution project to figure out ways our creek, Chimacum Creek, can get polluted and what we can do to prevent and protect our creek. 

Each team will publish a Public Service Announcement. Even though we are focusing on our creek, teams can choose to study other water pollutions such as ocean pollution or lake pollution instead of river/creek.

Students who chose to participate in the Student Blogging Challenge will get their first challenge today as well! They have all week to complete their challenge.

HW - None

Tuesday through Friday - I will be showing videos each of salmon restoration projects as well as climate change science to help students. Then teams will get the rest of the class period to work on their water pollution project.

This week period 1, Group B, will set the fish traps one day, then return the next day to ID and count any fish we catch in the traps. We always return the fish to the creek.
