What to Expect this Week
- Notes: Students will continue their study of currents and how they impact global environments, by learning about climate patterns. Quick vocabulary notes will be taken on Monday, with vocabulary terms posted to Quizlet for review. A vocabulary quiz will be completed on Thursday (12/18).
- Group Climate Research: Students will work with their groups to research an assigned climate type and develop a visually appealing poster to present on Thursday (12/18). Students will be provided work time Monday - Wednesday to research and create their poster.
Special Note: This week started off with quite the absence list! Should your student be absent this week, please note that I have posted all vocabulary terms to Quizlet for studying and a copy of the climate research project handout has been added to My Big Campus under the Resources tab of their Science 7 group. I hope that you will find these postings helpful for keeping your student current with the assignments. Please let me know if you have any questions.
