Today's Quote:

Recap:

6th: 6th graders watched an introductory video about how scientists identify a mystery and systematically follow the evidence around the planet to answer it. This was in place of our solar lab since I had an in-service to attend.

7th: Began the unit on the musculoskeletal system by learning how incredible the human body actually is and what it is capable of.


8th: One section of 8th grade finished the FCA while the other debriefed the FCA and then began our next section on how to determine valence electrons and determine bonding.


Brain Bender:

There is a single word in the English language in which the first two letters signify a male, the first three letters signify a female, the first four signify a great man, and the whole word, a great woman. What is the word?
