The science homework is due tomorrow. I will assign another on-line version of the homework tomorrow but it will be shorter in duration. It will also be covering all of the material in the unit Matter: Properties and Change (physical properties, minerals, rocks and the rock cycle).
I emailed all of the parents yesterday and attached a copy of the unit study guide. As I had mentioned in the email, the test has been moved back to Tuesday the 17th of November rather the 20th. The calendar on my Weebly has been changed to reflect it.
I then showed another video (not as fun as Bill Nye the Science Guy but it still had a lot of information that reinforced what was taught. It is only about 20 minutes......
The class discussed the following questions once the video had been watched.
The final task for science was to allow the students an opportunity to correct any mistakes on their quizzes. Since this is a re-do (in a sense) the best score they can get is an 80 which is still considered mastery. All I can say about this is: MUCH BETTER!!!
The rest of the period was devoted to working on their social studies project All About Me page, which is the beginning of it all and then finish page 12 in the book. I am aiming for them to be finished tomorrow.
Lastly, the project page has been updated and the guide is now available for downloading. I will be sending home another copy of the guide with each student too just to be certain that everyone has been given the information.
