    This week we will be having a test on Standard 7 Cell Organization and Standard 8 Cell Transportation.  This is a different division of standards than I usually have but I want to test before thanksgiving break.  Because this is a different break the quizizz will also include standard 9 Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration.  008888 is the code. .  Standard 7 and 8 Review Sheet.doc This is the review sheet that will be passed out today.   I will be posting grades today.  Please check to see if you or your student is missing anything. In regards to the Science Inquirry project (Science Fair Project), I have walked the students through their works cited page and have begun if not finished walking them through the research essay form.  Students should be typing them into their 365 accounts so that they have access both at home and at school.  Students are always welcome to come in at lunch for assistance.  I will be having computers in my room the two days before Thanksgiving break to give students an opportunity to type as well. Students may always hand in late work but the later they become the more compacted the project becomes.

    We have had a wonderful week and I hope everyone has a great weekend.  Do not forget we have monday off.  We have just completed our first week of research for our Science Inquiry (Science Fair) Project.  The students should print out their abstracts and title page if they have not done so and submit them on Tuesday.  I will then give feedback and make corrections.  When the students get their papers back back they should make the corrections, but do not print again until the final drafts.  The students were to have the the research essays and works cited done by this coming Friday but we will have a field trip and the computers will not be available so I have postponed it to the following week.  We will go over some of the directions, techniques and strategies next week so if they want to work on them at home and get a little ahead they can.  All students should be done with their research for the science fair.  I have attached the form that we did our research on.  Please ask the students to show you the form and discuss what they have discovered.   Next week we willl be returning to our regular curriculum and be moving on to standard 7 cell transport and standard 8 photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Over the next week we will discuss dialysis, chemical poisening through air and more.  For homework students should be working on Chapter 4 Lesson 3 and 4 as well as Chapter 5 Lesson 1 and 2 in their workbooks. We will be finishing this up the following week. Please email me if you have any questions.
