Here is a snapshot of what we did last week in Science:

4th Grade Science

This week students took their unit 2 test and finished their moving heavy objects lab by designing a device that could move textbooks.  Students were to measure the force needed to move their books using a spring scale.

 

5th Grade Science

This week students worked on their unit 2 test engineering test.  It was a different type of assessment than students have seen previously this year.  Feel free to ask them how they felt about it.  We are working to push students to think more deeply and be able to apply the information we have been learning.

6th Grade Science

This week students began a unit on erosion and deposition looking specifically at mechanical and chemical weathering.  We are in the middle of a lab looking at how weathering can affect metal.  We will continue this unit after Thanksgiving break.

 

Each Monday by 5 pm I will post the assignments that we will be completing for that week onto my classroom page on the school website.

 

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me via email.
