Hello Parents and Students

We will continue going over the solar system this week. Students received project information and research they need to be working on.

Objective:
students will research the physical properties, locations, and movements of the Sun, planets, Galilean moons, meteors, asteroids, and comets. We will construct a scale model.

Monday/Tuesday
Solar System Research **Due Next Class
Scale Model
Comet, Meteors, Asteroids

Wednesday/Thursday
Match Up

Week 26 March 16-20

March14

Welcome Back!!

I Hope you all had a wonderful Spring break! We are getting closer and closer to the end of the school year, CRAZY!! This is the last week of the 9 weeks!

This week we are finishing up force and motion, then we will quickly cover simple machines!

Objective:
Students will complete motion notes and review for upcoming quiz.
Through investigation, this lesson allows students to develop a fundamental understanding that inclined planes and pulleys affect the force needed to move an object.

Monday/Tuesday
Finsih Motion Notes
Review

Wednesday/Thursday
Quiz (distance, direction, displacement, average speed, force, velocity, acceleration)

Friday/Monday
Pulleys and inclined planes

Week 25 March 2- 6

February28

Hello,

Since last week was a little crazy, we will have to catch up this week. You students most likely has homework due next week. Maroon day classes have part 1 and 2 of walking lab and White day classes have part 1 and 2 of walking lab and Speed, velocity, and acceleration page.

Objective:
Students will investigate motion through a variety of activities in order to identify changes in position and direction and the speed of an object. Students will also graph changes in motion.

Monday:
Speed, Velocity, Acceleration (possible homework)
Motion Notes

Tuesday/Wednesday
Math/reading Benchmark

Thursday/Friday
Stomp Rockets (Hopefully)

Week 23- No School Monday! :)

February14

Hello Parents and Students,

I hope you are enjoying your much deserved 3 day weekend! :)

We finished up energy transfers and transformations last week, and this week we are moving on to motion and speed. We will have some math to do in this unit, so be prepared! Depending on the weather, we will try to go outside for a lab this week.

Objective: 6.8 A, B, C, D

Students will investigate motion through a variety of activities in order to identify changes in position and direction and the speed of an object. Students will also graph changes in motion.

Monday:
No School

Tuesday/Wednesday
Direction, Displacement and distance
*Notes and demonstrations

Thursday/Friday
Distance and Time Lab
-Go over unit 6 test

unit 6 test reteach will be- Wednesday during PE
retake will Thursday during PE
