Today's Quote:

'Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty if only we have the eyes to see them.' ~ John Ruskin


6th graders finally got to go outside and do the data collection part of their experiment on solar radiation and will continue to the implementation phase today. I want to remind ALL 6th graders that you were assigned IXL as NIGHTLY homework. It is MANDATORY if you received a D or an F on your progress report.

7th graders finished up the blood serum tests on their bacterial samples and will finish up their labs today in preparation of our test over the cell and cell membrane. 8th graders continued to have their minds blown over quantum theory. They met the entire cast of the Atomic Theory. During the process they learned about Democritus and his model of the atom which was adopted by John Dalton and turned into  his model. They also met Antoine Lavoisier and learned how he came up with the Law of Conservation of Mass which states Matter cannot be created or destroyed, but can be changed from one form to another. We then moved on to JJ Thompson, Earnest Rutherford, Neils Bohr

Brain Bender:

For several days a man stood in the parking lot looking up at the apartment building across the street. This man was becoming a nuisance and one of the tenants of the building phoned the authorities to have the man removed. Several days later when the authorities finally responded to the call, the man was gone. All they found to prove he was there, were a couple of buttons torn from a jacket and his hat. Who was the man they just missed?


(This should be written in your planner every day)

7th grade-  Lab  Pathogens, Antibodies, and Vaccines.  Finish questions and turn in. Place cell tonicity worksheet in box

6th grade-  Solar Input, a Limit To Growth Part 2

8th grade-   The Periodic Table advanced and last part of 

Ever wonder what all those elements are used for?

6th Grade Class Information and Syllabus

Weather and Atmosphere:
Unit Essential Question: How do the relationships among the five spheres affect life on Earth
How do the relationships among the five spheres affect life on Earth? 
Key Learning Statement: The atmosphere is layered and within these layers are weather patterns that affect life and are caused by interactions among spheres. Water is constantly being recycled through the spheres.  Heat transfer affects the development of weather. 

Homework: IXL nightly

7th Grade Class Information and Syllabus

Cell Structure and Function
Unit Essential Question: How has technology enhanced our understanding of cells? 

Key Learning Statement: As microscope technology advances, scientists understanding of cells is changing. Scientists continue to grow in their understanding of how a cell's structure and function are related to help maintain homeostasis.


8th Grade Honors Physical Science

8th Grade Class Information and Syllabus

Properties of Matter
Unit Essential Question: What determines the properties of matter? 
Key Learning Statement: The atom is the basic unit of matter.  The structure, motion, arrangement and energy of the atom determine the properties of matter.
