This week we are wrapping up our objective about the transfer of energy through the food webs and energy pyramid. Today students read a passage in their textbooks, took notes, and answered some of the comprehension questions that will be counted as a MINOR grade. Many students did not finish today and will be given some time to complete in class tomorrow. After the book work is completed, we will begin our MAJOR assessment for this section-- a RAFT writing assignment. See the attached PowerPoint for more information. We will work in class Tuesday and Wednesday on this "test." If students do not get finished during class time, they will need to take it home Wednesday, as it will be due at the beginning of class on Thursday.
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! :)
