HW - None

Tuesday to Friday - This week student teams will finish building their bottle rockets. Thursday or Friday, depending on weather, we will go out on the football field to launch the rockets and see which ones go the highest. If it continues to be windy or if it rains, we will postpone and launch the rockets next week. I will post launching day on Bloomz.

Students who are done with their bottle rockets will work on their 3D GameLab quests. The Simple Machines quest is for students to build simple machines used by their Market Day cultures to display on their Market Day booths on Friday, Jan 27.

Monday - Today students will complete the second half of lesson 5 on Forces, Inquiry 5.2 on the force of gravity. 

HW - Student teams are going to be building bottle rockets in class. Each team will need one 2L soda bottle. 

No School Monday, Jan 16, in celebration of MLK, Jr. Day.

Tuesday to Friday - Once teams are done with Lesson 5 they will complete the Elastic Force and Gravity 3D GameLab quest.

For the remainder of this week teams will be building bottle rockets to learn about the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. Those who get done early can work on 3D GameLab as there are a lot of great quests having to do with motion!

For teams that do not have a 2L soda bottle, they can work on their simple machines quest where they will be researching the simple machines used by the civilization they are studying for Market Day. Students will build a replica of a simple machine along with a notecard to display on their booth at the January 27 Market Day event!

HW - None!

Tuesday - Today we are going to start the prep work for our first EMM Lesson on Forces, Lesson 5, section 5.1 on Elastic Force.

Wednesday - Today teams should be starting the Lesson 5.1 lab on Elastic Force. Students will collect data to graph and analyze.

Thursday - Today we will start part two of lesson 5, Lesson 5.2, on the force of gravity.

Friday - Today students will complete their lesson 5 3D GameLab quest, Elastic Force and Gravity, so they can unlock and start working on the Simple Machines quest. That quest will get students started on adding a simple machine artifact to their Market Day booths! It should be awesome!

This week period 3, Group A, 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.
