Science New

Hi Students and Families,

Students have been working very hard using the engineering design process to design a drop package that will safely transport two eggs.  They have investigated what others have done using chrome books to conduct their research.  They have also conducted some tests on hard casing (the outside package), soft padding (the filling to protect packages), and parachute design.  Students have imagined different designs and shared them in teams to develop one design to use.

Tomorrow students will be creating their drop package.  While I have some materials, it would be greatly appreciated if students could also bring some materials from home.  Tape (scotch, masking, duct) and soft padding (bubble wrap, cotton balls, etc) are common items the students use.  If you have any extra you would like to donate, that would be very helpful.  Thank you!

New Science Notebook Request

Dear Students and Families,

Next week we will be finishing up our science unit on heat transfer.  We will then begin learning about ecosystems.  Many students’ science notebooks are filled, really worn, or missing.  I am requesting that every student have a new notebook by Friday, March 10th.  I highly recommend a composition notebook because it is very durable and can be found at dollar stores.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.  Thank you so much!

Science Test Alert!

There will be a science test on Friday, October 28, 2016.  Students have been learning about the thinking skills scientists use.  To help them study, students began creating a brochure about the skills scientists use that will count as a test grade.  Some students did not finish during the class time given and will need to finish it for homework.  The brochure is due Friday, October 28th.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.  Thank you!
