Students now have their mini- boards. Everything is due on December 10th. We went to the media center on Wednesday to work on our works cited page as well as our title pages. We will need one more day with computers in order to finish the three pages we were working on and I will schedule that.

While interviewing a young man for the job, the applicant suddenly volunteers that the woman in line behind him had confided that she is a native.

Chemical and physical properties of matter.
Today's classes will take the vocabulary quiz and we will go over our notes on Density and properties of matter. We will finish up our lab from Thursday and Friday last week, tomorrow when we have the entire period to work. Students who were out sick when the lab began will have to chose a physical property of matter and write a two page report for credit in place of the lab. Please see me, if you were absent so that I might assign you a topic. This will be due next Monday.
ALL students should watch the three videos above for homework.
Here is a link to my Power Point notes for this unit: Mass, Density.
Read Chapter 6 sections 3 and 4. Students should begin working on sections 3 & 4 reviews which will be due Monday, December 1st, 2014.
Class in Action
Yesterday I introduced a new note taking strategy called Cornell Notes with Summary. I demonstrated this technique using page 250 in the Sciencesaurus. Students will use the new note taking strategy throughout the year and it should give them a little extra time with the materials as they read and then summarize the topic.
