    Last week we completed our Unit I Project and students have received their grades. The project was a mini science board for a lab we did concerning the effect temperature had on the breathing rate of fish. Attached to their project was a rubric that identified ways they can improve their project.  This lays out the foundation on how they are to complete this aspect of the Science Fair Project (Science Inquiry Project). Most students received a copy of the Science Inquiry Packet.   On Friday a sheet that asks parents and students to sign so they know the expectations of the project is due.  The following week the proposal is due.  This proposal includes the EDD (Experimental Design) which will lay out the experiment that the student wants to do.  It to must be approved by both the parent and the teacher. The packet contains most of the dates and these will be passed on my calendar shortly. This week in class we are discussing the characteristics of life determining what makes something living and then moving into cell theory and microscopes. Students will learn the different parts of a microscope, how they work and a little history on the microscope.
