We are now studying unit 2, energy and the different forms of energy. The students need to be reviewing their notes on a regular basis and reading the sections assigned to them in a chapter.So that when they have a test they are prepared for it.

My help sessions are on Monday and Wednesday from 3:10 till 4:20 and Wednesday morning 7:10 till 7:30.

The students are doing an excellent job on their science fair project. The students should be doing their second experiment now and their write up for experiment two is due on Tuesday October 18.


Science Fair has become

 I wanted to announce that the science fair has started! The kids have to have their science fair topic approved by me by September 8th. We were in the media center today and will be in their Tuesday to research topics for the science fair. This is the hardest part of the science fair picking a topic that is challenging and in the guide lines of the ISEF council. I gave the students the web site for ideas for topics it is and also the ISEF web site. If possible have your child work on generating a topic that is at lease an 8 level and ready for my approval.

Have a great restful weekend.

We have had a great beginning to this new school year. We just finished up scientific method and safety. We are starting chapter 2 “properties of matter”. The students should start looking at their notes on a daily basis even if no homework has been assigned. This will help them especially when they may have any questions about the content.

What a great first week we have had!

This week in physical science we went through safety procedures and the  scientific method which is the steps taken in conducting an experiment.

Next week we will be going over scientific method, which we really study for the whole school year. Also the tools and the different types of measurement used with each piece of equipment .

I am planning an assessment next Friday, August 26th which will encompass chapter one in our book.
