This week we have started talking about heat. We have thoroughly discussed the "Popcorn" article and used it to take notes the past few days. We will be continuing this discussion next week with conductors and insulators. Our unit test is scheduled for the Friday (1/9/15) when we come back from break. A study guide will be sent home next Friday (12/19/14) and we will spend the week when we get back reviewing and tying up the unit. Our benchmark will be on 1/21/15. The quarter closes on 1/16/15. All missing work and test corrections will be due on January 16, 2015. No exceptions.
As incentive to complete all missing work, next Friday will be a day where we are going to have stations of science review games. Students may only participate in the games if they have all work completed and turned in by the beginning of class that day. If they still have missing work, they will be spending that class period working to make up their missing assignments. Let's get that work turned in so we can all have a fun review day! :)
**Don't forget, homework is DUE TOMORROW!!!**
Science class holiday wishlist:
- .5 & .7 cases of pencil lead
- Santizing wipes (Lysol, Clorox, etc.)
- dry erase markers
- hand soap
- extra composition notebooks
- construction paper
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! :)
