WOW! This week flew by :)
Today we discussed the difference between renewable and nonrenewable and also the difference between natural and non-natural. For example: paper is renewable because it is made from trees (which is a natural renewable resource) but it is NOT natural because it is man-made. Aluminum is nonrenewable because it is made from minerals but it IS natural because it is not man-made.
We also started working on our mineral project! Students will be making a brochure to inform their classmates about their chosen mineral. Each person picked a mineral today to research and starting looking up information needed for their brochure. This project is due SEPTEMBER 1st (so PLENTY of time to complete it). We will be working on this project in the computer lab three other times before it is due.
HW: NONE!! Enjoy your weekend and go see our Jr. Wildcats play at 9:00am on Saturday for their first game.
OPTIONAL: If you need some help on your project, watch the videos below for some uses of minerals. I know I mention there is a hand-out, but we already completed it so don't worry about it.
REMINDER: Performance Tasks are due August 28th. We will also have time to work on these in class next week, so don't stress :)
