Today we discussed our solar system in comparing the planets that are in our own solar system. We also were able to complete a scavenger hunt around the 6th grade annex to help us answer questions about our solar system.
HW: Study for a quiz on the solar system tomorrow
Make sure you have gotten your report card envelope signed
Today we took a short quiz over everything we have discussed in Unit 8 so far, and we were also able to make a "Universe in a Box"! We also received our 3rd quarter report card envelopes, so make sure you get those signed and returned tomorrow.
HW: 1st, 2nd, and 4th period: Seasons Challenge Sheet
Today we were able to do some research about the planets in our solar system and present our findings to the class. 3rd period had a guest speaker from the Watershed Stewardship program who taught us how to identify bugs near our streams and how they effect water quality. Tomorrow, everyone will have a short quiz over the information we have learned in Unit 8 so far.
HW: STUDY for a short quiz tomorrow
Solar System Edpuzzle is due TOMORROW
Today some of us were able to practice taking dissolved oxygen levels with Ms. Dove from the Watershed Stewardship program. It was fun mixing chemicals and taking samples of water in order to see if it had high levels of oxygen or not. 3rd period was able to do research on each of the planets in our solar system and present this information to the rest of the class.
HW: Study for a quiz on Wednesday!
