I've attached a picture below of my notes from 1st period today (they are the farthest ahead of any class). Your child should have a similar sheet in the "current notes" section of their binder. Since it is the beginning of the year and I know note-taking skills are difficult to develop, I wanted to show you a copy of mine so that you can compare them to your child's and see if they missed anything. :)
Don't forget- we have our vocabulary quiz tomorrow! The words are: relative position, composition, density, crust, mantle, outer core, inner core, asthenosphere, lithosphere, tectonic plates AND WE ADDED THIS ONE: convection. It is listed in the Objective 2 words, but we needed to go ahead and discuss it. :)
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! :)
