Classwork and Homework

Week of September 16 - 20, 2019
 
Monday - Today students completed the outside of page 14 (BN-Atmosphere) and answered 15 questions in School Net as part of their review for their test this Wednesday (9/18).
Homework: Test will be this Wednesday (September 18, 2019).  Students need to study pages 8-14 in their ISN (Interactive Science Notebook). Students can also use the 3 Quizlet sets on the scientific method, weather tools, and atmosphere and air pressure, listed on my "Useful Links" page, to help them learn the vocabulary for this unit. Students were informed today that they will answer questions tomorrow in Quizizz for a daily grade based on the information on pages 8-14 in their ISN.
 
Tuesday - Today students reviewed for the test tomorrow.  Students then answered questions to a Quizizz review for a daily classwork grade. Students also reviewed by playing the Gimkit game made from the Quizlet on my Useful Links page.
Homework: Test is tomorrow (September 18, 2019).  Students need to study pages 8-14 in their ISN (Interactive Science Notebook). Students can also use the 3 Quizlet sets on the scientific method, weather tools, and atmosphere and air pressure, listed on my "Useful Links" page, to help them learn the vocabulary for this unit.  Tests are NOT solely based on the Quizlets.  Quizlets are a tool to help students learn the vocabulary, but additional questions, charts, tables, and graphs are used on tests to assess a students level of understanding of the content beyond basic vocabulary.  
 
Wednesday - Today students took their test.  We will begin a new unit on air quality tomorrow. 
Homework: None. :)
 
Thursday - Today students began their unit on air quality.  Students glued in page 15 (Air Quality) and page 16 (BN-Pollution Solutions) in their ISN (interactive science notebook). Students watched the Bill Nye video on pollution solutions and filled in the viewing guide on the outside of page 16. Students also began reading about air quality in the science textbook and filling in page 15 (Air Quality). We will complete page 15 tomorrow in class. 
Homework: Students need to review their notes on pollution solutions from the Bill Nye video on page 16.
 
Friday - Today students completed the textbook reading and filled in page 15 (Air Quality), which we went over in class.  Students also watched the BrainPop on Air Pollution and filled in the matching on the inside of page 16 (BN-Pollution Solutions). 
Homework: Students in Skeen and Griffin's homerooms that did not complete the BrainPop activity on the inside of page 16 need to complete that for homework. All students need to review their notes on pages 15 and 16 in their ISN (interactive science notebook).  Students can also use the Air Quality and Environmental Science quizlet on my "Useful Links" page to help them start learning some of the vocabulary for this unit. 
 
 
Week of September 9 - 13, 2019
 
Monday - Today students continued their study of the atmosphere by learning about the different layers of the atmosphere.  Students glued in page 12 (Earth's Atmosphere) and filled in the front and the back.  We began going over the inside of page 12 in class and will finish going over the rest tomorrow. 
Homework: Students need to review pages 8 - 11 in their interactive science notebook (ISN) and the information we were able to get through today on page 12.
 
Tuesday - Today students completed both the inside and outside of page 12 (Earth's Atmosphere).  Students then began making their Atmosphere foldable on page 13. Students will complete their foldable tomorrow in class.
Homework: Students need to review pages 8 - 12 in their interactive science notebook (ISN). Students can also use the 3 Quizlet sets on the scientific method, weather tools, and atmosphere and air pressure, listed on my "Useful Links" page, to help them learn the vocabulary for this unit. 
 
Wednesday - Today students in Evans, McKinney, and Griffin homerooms completed an Atmosphere foldable on page 13 of their ISN and received a daily grade for the accuracy and completion of the foldable. Mrs. Skeen's homeroom class has almost finished with the foldable, so I will wait to grade those on Friday since all my classes will be having a lab tomorrow (Thursday).
Homework: Test will be next Wednesday (September 18, 2019).  Students need to study pages 8-13 to begin preparing. Students can also use the 3 Quizlet sets on the scientific method, weather tools, and atmosphere and air pressure, listed on my "Useful Links" page, to help them learn the vocabulary for this unit. 
 
Thursday - Today students completed a measurement lab.
Homework: Test will be next Wednesday (September 18, 2019).  Students need to study pages 8-13 to begin preparing. Students can also use the 3 Quizlet sets on the scientific method, weather tools, and atmosphere and air pressure, listed on my "Useful Links" page, to help them learn the vocabulary for this unit. 
 
Friday - Today students in Mrs. Skeen's homeroom completed their atmosphere foldable on page 13 and then I checked their foldable for a daily grade.  Students glued in page 14 (BN-Atmosphere). Students watched the Bill Nye video on Atmosphere and filled in the viewing guide on the inside of page 14. 
Homework: Test will be next Wednesday (September 18, 2019).  Students need to study pages 8-14 to begin preparing.

Week of September 2 - 6, 2019
 
Tuesday - Today students got their safety quiz back in class.  Students then read about the scientific method in their textbook and completed the inside of page 8 (Scientific Method). We completed page 9 (Observations and Inferences) on Friday.  Students put page 10 (Composition of Air) in their notebook and read about the composition of the air in our atmosphere and began filling in the inside of page 10. We will go over page 10 tomorrow in class.
Homework: Students need to review pages 8 and 9 in their science notebook on observations and inferences and the scientific method. If they have not already done so, students need to get their parent/guardian to sign the safety contract, located on page 6 of their science notebook. The safety contract must be signed by a parent for students to participate in their first lab.
 
Wednesday - Today students completed the inside of page 10 (Composition of Air), learning about the gases and particles in our air. Students then began watching a video on Mt. Everest, which teaches about air pressure and acclimatization. 
Homework: Students need to review pages 8 - 10 in their science notebook. If they have not already done so, students need to get their parent/guardian to sign the safety contract, located on page 6 of their science notebook. The safety contract must be signed by a parent for students to participate in their first lab.
 
Thursday - Today students finished watching the video on Mt. Everest. We discussed how the lack of oxygen at higher altitudes affects the body. We also went over the answers to the Everest questions on the outside of page 10, which pertained to the video.
Homework: Students need to review pages 8 - 10 in their science notebook. 
 
Friday - Today students continued to learn about the properties of air, specifically air pressure, by watching the Bill Nye video on pressure. They added page 11 (BN - Pressure) to their interactive science notebook (ISN) and filled in the blanks as they watched the video. We then went over the answers at the end of class.

Friday - Today students took their quiz on lab safety. Students also defined observation and inference on page 9 (Observations & Inferences) and then created a chart to differentiate between the two. Students then observed the "magic candle" demonstration by Mrs. Evans and wrote what they observed and inferred from the demonstration. Skeen, Evans, and McKinney homerooms did not have time to complete the inside of page 8, so they will complete this upon their return on Tuesday (9/3).
Homework: If they have not already done so, students need to get their parent/guardian to sign the safety contract, located on page 6 of their science notebook.
