Today's Lateral Thinking question:

How far can a dog run into the woods?

Now Playing During Lunch

Today is a tutoring lunch. No video, but I am there to help.

Today's Class:

Today's class will be used for catch u. If you did not finish your ball bounce lab, now is the time to do it. If you have not taken the FCA or did not finish this is the day to do it. If you have not come up with a science fair idea, get to it. If you haven't watched the video, do it on a lap top. If you have not done Brain Pop, do it now. If you have ALL OF THAT DONE, Log in to FCAT EXPLORER. This is not a wasted day to sit and talk, CATCH up!

Even Superheroes need SCIENCE!

I have been looking over the science fair cards, but as I do, I will return them to students stapled to a design sheet. You can preview that sheet at the following link: General layout for experimental design.

Today's homework:

Precision and Accuracy. This first unit is on today's topic.

Free Resource!

I have purchased a Brain Pop account for my classes to use.

The user name for all students is: redshoulderhawks

The password for all students is: Horizon2014

Cool Website Alert

Have you ever been really curious about a topic and just don't know what to believe from the internet? Try Sparticl. Students just like you LOVE Sparticl, especially when doing research. As one student said, “One great thing about Sparticl is that it includes both fun activities as well as educational resources. If you want to write a research paper, you will find great information on Sparticl, and it’s all credible,” said Hanna Endrias, 14, of Washington, D.C. Sparticl, give you access to current science and STEM activities and features really cool games in a learning platform. Try it today!

We talked about making a works cited page for your research paper and I recommendEasybib. It is incredibly easy to use and a tool you can use from now through college.

FCAT Explorer is now ready for use! Go to FCAT Explorer.com. Once you get there you can sign in using the following formula for your user name and password

STUDENT LOGIN INFORMATION Student sign-ins are using the following formula : full last name, followed by the first letter of the first name (e.g. Alberto Rodriguez = RODRIGUEZA). Student passwords Are using the following formula: the two-digit district ID number, followed by the first four letters of the last name, followed by the two-digit birth month, followed by the two-digit birth day (e.g. Alberto Rodriguez, Duval County [16], born on May 10 [mmdd] = 16RODR0510). Our District ID is { 42 }.

I should have your sections set up by tomorrow. Once they are in place you can work on FCAT explorer from home. When you complete a section (for example Science Voyager), I will enter a quiz grade based on what your average score was. This will count toward your class grade, but cannot hurt your grade. (It functions like an extra credit assignment)
