Wednesday Class

Yesterday we introduced the year end island project. We also divided the students into their groups. While this year end project is an evaluation, we also have made it into a competition that we refer to as the science apprentice.

Today we had our first day working in groups. Tasks that groups did today include:
1. Brainstorm Sheet
2. Sketching of Map
3. Set up plan for project responsibilities.

The page for this project can be found on our resource pages!

Thursday Class

Today in science we did two things:
1. Finished the presentations that we started yesterday on the characteristics of waves.
2. Did a "exploration" lab on sound and sound waves. This lab is not available online, but nothing will be handed in from this lab.

Tomorrow we will do our Chemistry Magic Show that the students are really looking forward too:) We couldn't do this at the original scheduled day due to weather. Some of our "tricks" need to be done outdoors!
