    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.

    Friday of last week we took our Science Investigation Test. Scores of should be complete in the next day or so.  Yesterday we did a reflection of the unit, finished tests and pretests that were not complete from Friday. Students who scored a B and below are welcome to highly encouraged to retake sections of the test.  To do so, students will print off the appropriate reteach sheet and complete it.  They will then check their answers with a key at school and ask me for help if they need it.  I am available at lunch and before school upon request. They must also have the appropriate sections of their folder complete as well.  Once this is done they may take the retake. Before we start the next unit I am going to do a lesson called SIP (Science Inquiry Project) in a day.  Basically a truncated version of their science fair project so that they have an overview of the expectations.  Their project for the first unit will to make a mini science board and paper. We will work on this on Wednesday and Thursday.  They will be included in their interim grades. In addition, I passed back the next unit for the folder. Students with other assignments complete were to work on the vocabulary. I will pass back pretest grades later this week and students can start studying and reviewing.  We will start with Characteristics of Life and a lab asking students to define life and to test their hypothesis. Please contact me if you have any questions. Again my contact me link is now up and running.
