6th-grade Science

Monday to Friday - This week students will have more time to work on their 3D GameLab work as well as choosing samples of their work so far for their electronic portfolios (ePortfolios).

This week we will also work on the Faraday Golfing Machine Robotics activity.

HW - None unless you have fallen behind.

This week period 1 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.

If the weather permits, I'll take 2nd period down later in the week. Maybe Thursday and Friday. We'll see, otherwise, 2nd period will go down next week.
8th-grade Science

Monday - Today we will complete page 36 from our class barometer data.

Then students can work on their 3D GameLab quests to study for the upcoming weather final exam. 

I will also be leading students through an activity where they will be guiding an International Space Station (ISS) digital camera to take digital images for us that WE CHOOSE! Exciting!

HW - Do any catch-up work so that you can be ready for the exam. 

Tuesday - Last day to study for the exam and complete the 3D GameLab quests.

Students must also finish setting up their electronic portfolio (ePortfolio) and adding samples of their Weather work and learning.

Wednesday - Weather Unit final exam!

Thursday - Today those who did not complete the final exam get a chance to finish. Those who did finish and need to fix any answers will get to do so today.

Friday - Last chance to finish weather 3D GameLab quests and to finish the exam.
6th-grade Keyboarding

Monday to Friday - Our daily routine is as follows:
  1. Check Classcraft.
  2. Practice Keyboarding with All The Right Type.
  3. Work on the WoW in Schools curriculum using 3D GameLab.
HW - No homework is assigned unless a student falls behind. If your child falls behind, he or she can catch up on their Keyboarding and on their 3D GameLab assignments using any device that has an Internet connection. To practice keyboarding, a device with a full keyboard is best. Kids can also do their keyboarding practice and 3D GameLab assignments from home if they want to get ahead.
