6th-grade Science

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
  • Ocean Acidification
  • Water Cycle
In addition to the above topics, every team will learn about two water quality parameters. I will be training teams on how to use the equipment we have so that we can start collecting data on our creek's dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, turbidity and flow rate. This is a fantastic way to have our 6th graders do real Science as they monitor our creek's health!

HW - Finish your Water Pollution PSA if you are not done.

Tuesday - No school today so that students and parents can come to their Student-Led Conferences. I will see my 2nd period families today!

Wednesday to Friday - See Monday. I'm hoping to be done training teams by Friday at the latest so that we can start going down to the creek Monday to begin getting water quality data! If I finish training teams before Friday, we might very start going down to the creek this week!

Monday - Group B - We will be meeting in the computer lab so that students can continue playing World of Warcraft! Students can choose to continue playing their Alliance characters to get them to level 20, get mounts, and do dungeon runs with Mr. G OR students can start playing a Horde character if they completed the Villain quests on 3D GameLab!

HW - None

Tuesday - Group C - Not meeting today for Student-Led Conferences.

Wednesday - Group A - Same as Monday.

Friday (double period) - 
12:28 to 1:03pm - Group B
1:06 to 1:41pm - Group C
1:45 to 2:20pm - Group A

Students will be working on their WoW in Schools 3D GameLab quests on Fridays so we will be meeting in my Science classroom, room 410. Whether students choose to continue playing Alliance or start playing Horde, they have plenty of 3D GameLab quests to choose from.
Email me with any questions.
