Students in science class will begin their new unit on Monday. Each student needs a portfolio folder with three fasteners for this unit.Many students purchased these folders at the beginning of the school year and stored them in the lab.
Students have completed their electric audits. The projects are currently being graded and should be updated on Edline in the next few days. The last set of lessons on electricity reviewed the role of renewable and nonrenewable energy sources. Students explored generators and designed turbines that could be used to generate electricity. To wrap up the unit on electricity, students will be taking a quiz on Friday.
Students in the eighth grade will be learning about chemistry and engineering in the remaining science topics this school year. This is the point where all students will start a new science notebook. Some students purchased a second book to be stored in the science lab. All students need their new science notebooks by the start of class on Tuesday! You can read more about the science notebook from the science website.
