Week of December 11th

 

This week’s learning target in science:

  • Compare and contrast extinct organisms with similar, modern-day organisms.

This week we will be completing our Ice Age research project. Students will present their findings in class on Thursday. We will review for the Unit 4 test over fossils on Friday and the test will be Monday, December 18th. I will be available to study group on Friday, December 15th at 7:30 am.

Please realize that since it is so close to the end of this quarter, any reteaching and reassessing over standards in remediation will not happen until we return from break.

Have a great week!

 

Week of December 4th

This week’s learning targets in science:

  • Describe the methods used to estimate geological time and age of the Earth

This unit will likely take through to the end of the semester and winter break. As the end of the unit approaches, I will send home a study guide and information about study groups.

Have a great week!

Week of 11/20 and 11/27

This week’s learning targets in science:

  • Explain the types of fossils and processes by which they are formed (i.e., replacement, mold and cast, preservation, trace)

Students have received their Unit 3 test results. These can also be viewed on mastery connect. Students who scored below 60% were offered after school tutoring. All others will receive extra help during itime this week and will be given an opportunity to retake any standards they struggled with.

Week of November 13th

This week’s learning targets in science:

  • Describe the different ways in which fossils form.

 

Students will receive their test report from Unit 3 this Thursday. I will set up tutoring with students as needed.

Week of November 8th

This week’s learning targets in science:

  • Identify plate boundaries and the landforms or geologic events that occur at each boundary.

 

Our Unit 3 test over Plate Tectonics will be Friday, November 10th. Students will be given a study guide on Wednesday, November 8th in class.

Have a great week!

Week of October 23rd

This week’s learning targets in science:

  • outline evidence that is used to support the theory of continental drift
  • describe the mechanisms that are believed to cause crustal plate movement
  • describe how the plates move at each plate boundary and the effect this movement has on Earth’s crust
