  • Thursday, October 10- Today we completed a traits inventory and graphed our data.

  • Wednesday, October 9- Today we completed the graphing portion of our waves exam. We also did an intro to genetics reading and answered question. This is homework if you did not finish in class. (see handouts).

  • Tuesday, October 8- Today we took the essay portion of our waves exam. Graphing portion is Wednesday, finish your review.

  • Monday, October 7- Today we finished our evidence sheets and reviewed for our essay exam.

  • Friday, Ocotber 4- Today we put together our waves unit packets. We also started filling out our evidence sheet for our exam

  • Thursday, October 3- Today we looked at how sound waves interact with different matter (see videos). We also practiced graphing waves. (see Handouts).

  • Wednesday, October 2- Today we reviewed our simulation. We also created a resource sheet for the electromagnetic spectrum (see handouts).

  • Tuesday, October 1- Today we finished out light simulation. You can access the simulation using our Amplify link in google classroom. We also completed a reading and questions in google classroom.

  • Monday, September 30- Today we started our last light simulation to see if we can figure out why Australia has such a high amount of UV light. (see handouts).

  • Friday, September 27- Today we completed a laser light activity to see how light travels. 

  • Thursday, September 26- Today we finished our scientifica arguments. We also leaned how to graph a wave.

  • Wednesday, Septemebr 25- Today we looked at evidence to support claims 2 & 3. We also started constructing a scienctific argument (see handouts from 9/24).

  • Tuesday, September 24- Today we went over our simulation activity. We also started looking at claim 3- "More people in Australia have skin that is more easily damaged by the sun" (see handouts)

  • Monday, September 23- Today we watched Bill Nye Waves and completed a notetaking sheet (see handouts).

  • Friday, Septemebr 20- Today we did a simulation activity to see how different light interacts with genetic material (see handouts).

  • Thursday, September 19- Today we completed a light activity to help us with claim 2- Something is different about the sunlight in Australia.

  • Wednesday, September 18- Today we looked at evidence for claim 1- Australia gets a lot of sunlight. We analyzed data to see if this claim supported their rate of skin cancer. (see handouts).

  • Tuesday, September 17- Today we passed back our Experimental Design test and went over the grading rubric. We also finished our light simulation. You can access the simulation through Amplify in our google classroom. (see handouts).

  • Monday, September 16- Today we started our our light simulation. You can access the simulation through Amplify in our google classroom. (see handouts).

  • Thursday, September 12- Today we started our light investigation activity. (see handouts)

  • Wednesday, Septermber 11- Today we created our Amplify Science accounts and took the Waves pre-assessment. 

  • Tuesday, September 10 -Today we worked on our Black Box lab conclusion. Final drafts can be typed or hand written and are due on Thursday.

  • Monday, September 9- Today we had a planner check. We also wrote our black box conclusion (rough draft). The final draft is due Thursday. (see handouts for conclusion requirements and grading rubric).

  • Friday, September 6- Today we took our science test. If you were absent see Mrs. Connors to make up your test. 

  • Thursday, September 5- Today we reviewed for our science test (see handouts)

  • Wednesday, September 4- Today we collected our final black box data set. We also started our Experimental Design practice test/review in Google Classroom.

  • Tuesday, September 3- Today we completed our final black box revisions.

  • Friday, August 30- Today we completed the first round of data collection using our black box models. Some groups also started revising their designs.

  • Thursday, August 29- Today we continued building our black box models.

  • Wednesday, August 28- Today we started our black box model construction. Groups completed their design and chose materials for their build.

  • Tuesday, August 27- Today we had a sub. Students watched a Mythbusters and completed a worksheet identifying the parts of the experimental design (see handouts and videos)

  • Monday, August 26- Today we had our first planner check. We also completed all of part 1 and #'s 1-3 on part 2 of our Black Box Lab packet.

  • Friday, August 23- Today we completed our 1st set of Black Box data collection (see handouts).

  • Thursday, August 22- Today we learned how to peer edit our lab conclusions. We also completed a pattern activity.

  • Wednesday, August 21- Today we completed our M&M lab conclusion and went over the answers of the experimental design packet (see handouts).

  • Tuesday, August 20- Today we looked at the importance of sample size by starting our M&M lab (see handouts).

  • Monday, August 19- Today we worked on our experimental design packet. If you did not finish in class, it is homework. (see handouts).
