After a long break, and only 2 weeks of school into the semester, I'm sure the students are excited to get back... right?! Hopefully the science 24s haven't forgotten everything they learned?!
Just in case they were a little busy and not school oriented over the past 10 days, we will be reviewing the first half of the unit on Tuesday. I will be discussing with the class the importance of completing their work and making sure they ask questions and rewriting assessments when they don't do as well as they should have. According to the science department assessment policy, students are able to rewrite quizzes during FLT time or lunch, after completing their homework and corrections, in order to prove they have put in the necessary effort to rewrite.
This week, in science 24, we will be diving into the more chemistry based part of Unit B, dealing with photosynthesis, cellular respiration and hydrocarbon combustion. We will be performing a variety of inquiries and hands on activities to really experience the science, and I look forward to it!
Soo.... after all of that... what's up for this week?!?
This week in Chem 30

After one week into second semester I am very excited about where we are headed in Science 24! Classes have settled in, and we have gotten under way with the energy unit! Students were asked to create energy conversion models that demonstrate at least 3 energy conversions, and the work being done was excellent! This week, we will get more into the mathematical section of energy, learning about work energy and power. This part of the unit is extremely useful to real life, which is key to kids being interested in what we are learning!
A reminder after this week students are off for 9 days for teacher convention week... I am in high hopes that students won't forget everything we learned after the break!

Monday: Energy Conversions Review
Tuesday: Generating Energy
Wednesday: Generating Project
Thursday: Power and Efficiency
Friday: Chapter Review
Upcoming Due Dates:
