We are currently completing chapter 1 and will begin chapter 2 by the end of this week. We will be doing two lab activities in class this week. Students will have a quiz on 1-4 vocabulary on Tuesday and a measurement test on Friday.
Science projects are in full swing right now. Students were given a purple paper last week with the due dates from now until December when the final project is due. This week they are compiling information for their experimental design. The typed experimental design is due on 10/9/10.
Students will be given time in school to do research but it wouldn't hurt if they did some outside of school as well.
I prefer that the students make up quizzes or tests before or after school so that they are not missing instructional time. Students need to check with me to make sure I am available for them to make up tests or quizzes on the day that they want to come in or stay after school. If this is not possible I would like the parent or guardian to write me a note telling me that an alternative time should be found during the school day.
Textbooks and supplies need to be brought to class each day.
