Today we continued our discussion of the eyes with a video about why we cry and the three different types of tears. We will continue that discussion when we come back from break. I have uploaded the videos that we have been using in class the past few days to the Assignments & Resources tab, including the video about tears that we watched today. We also took a vocabulary quiz and got our extra credit assignment today as well. I will upload a copy of that to the Assignments and Resources tab shortly.
Each task in the packet is worth 1% extra credit for a total of 10% possible that can be used toward a formative or minor grade. In order to get that 1%, it must be complete and all answers must be correct. Even one incorrect answer on an entire page will keep from getting the 1%. (So it is all or nothing; extra credit = extra effort.) All open-ended questions must be answered in complete sentences. This assignment must be turned in on Monday to be accepted. Late submissions for extra credit will not be accepted.
Interims will be coming out shortly. Everything that has been turned into me has been updated in PS today. Please check to make sure that you are not missing any work, and if you are, get it turned in ASAP.
I am still in need of parent volunteers for the cow's eye dissection. If you would like to volunteer, please e-mail me and contact the school to make sure that you have a background check on file. I have sent an informational sheet home with your student today.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! :)
Extra help is available every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30. Please remember that you MUST fill out a permission form (below) and turn it in the day before in order to attend.
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
