Last week you should have received a Student Information Sheet. Please return that form this week. We do take the time to read each one of these for some insight on how best to help your child.
HOMEWORK: This week we will be using the Lab Safety and Tools list on packet 1 vocabulary to complete Zondle or the 4 square activity on the homework menu. Students should have a list of vocabulary words for the first six weeks along with a homework menu that should be kept in their binders at all times. All vocabulary lists and the homework menu can be found here. Homework is due on Thursday during class and we will have a vocabulary quiz on Friday.
To complete the homework on Zondle, students should play the Lab Safety and Tools game 10 times before Thursday morning. I will take the average score for a grade.
Monday: Introduction to scientific method and lab safety (notes). We will also create a question, hypothesis and plan for tomorrow's gum lab. The gum lab will be one of three major grades for this six weeks.
Tuesday: Gum Lab: experiment and data
Wednesday: Gum Lab: graph data and write conclusion
Thursday: Test Review (Answers will be available on Edmodo after 4 pm)
Friday: Test (vocabulary words for this week are included on the test)
