10 days till Winter Break!

Today's Quote:


☆People who shine from within  don't need the spotlight☆


Recap:

6th: Student finally worked through the calculation of solar input and realized they were over-complicating the process. The lab is set up to take each step which requires them to slow down and think. After we determined the solar constant, we compared that to the actual value used by scientists. 

7th: Students were given a skeletal diagram to color and hi-light the notes on. We began our skeletal system notes. I had hoped the ones would be in, but Publix said they would not arrive until today so we will push our lab off until Monday


8th: Both sections have now finished and de-briefed the FCA#2. Scores were fantastic! We then began delving into how to balance chemical equations. We will finish this up today and discuss our next lab after we cover calculating molar mass


Brain Bender:

Mr. Dodgers and the children in the neighborhood are raking leaves at Mr. Dodger's house. They have three piles of leaves in the front yard and seven piles of leaves in the backyard. When Mr. Dodgers and the children put all the piles together, how many piles of leaves will they have?

6th Grade Class Information and Syllabus

Earth’s Structure and Changes Over Time

Unit Essential Question: How do the processes of the rock cycle and human activities alter the surface of Earth over time? 
How do the processes of the rock cycle and human activities alter the surface of Earth over time?
Key Learning Statement: The shape of the land changes over time through two major processes, both natural and manmade.  Natural changes occur through weathering, erosion, and deposition which are agents of the rock cycle.  Manmade changes occur through deforestation, urbanization, desertification, air, land, water quality, and change in flow and pollution of water.  

Homework: IXL nightly


7th Grade Honors Life Science

7th Grade Class Information and Syllabus

Human Body
Unit Essential Question: How are the systems of the human body organized so that they work together to maintain homeostasis?

Key Learning Statement: The body is made up of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems.  These systems have different functions, working together to maintain homeostasis, and protect against pathogens.
