Countdown to Vacation!

Today's Quote:


In 8th grade Honors we went over how to balance chemical equations and practiced balancing a few on the board. We will continue doing one or two practice problems a day. I went over what a proper equation looks like including how the reactants are set up on the left side of the yield arrow and products to the right. I clarified that you CANNOT change the subscripts in an equation in order to balance it, but MUST use a coefficient to get it done. We went over the Law of Conservation of Matter and what polyatomic ions are.

In 7th grade Honors, we began our discussion of the skeletal system. We used the  Skeletal Power Point from yesterday and noted the differences between the axial skeleton and appendicular skeleton. I emphasized that the appendicular skeleton contains not only the bones of the arms and legs but also those of the "girdles"attaching them to the Axial skeleton.

In 8th grade physical science students took the quiz over density, volume and mass.

Brain Bender:

Which of the following words do not belong with the others and why? Father, Aunt, Sister, Cousin, Mother, Uncle.
