I hope you have had an enjoyable and relaxing summer. Middle school science is organized into three primary courses: Life Science, Earth/Space Science and Physical Science. The following information will help you be successful in science this school year. It will be a fun and exciting journey if you follow the rules and open your mind to the material.
1st Grading Cycle - Matter and Energy
2nd Grading Cycle - Organisms and Environments
3rd Grading Cycle - Force, Motion, and Energy
4th Grading Cycle - Earth and Space
Science is more than just a discipline; it is a way of knowing, thinking and using that knowledge to explain the world around us. Some of you may think that you don't like science, or that it is too hard for you. Others already know that science is one of their favorite classes. I believe that everyone learns by doing. The lessons and activities in my classroom are created to provide you with multiple opportunities for learning in a hands-on, minds-on design.
$5.00 science lab fee to cover lab supplies/materials
2 plastic folders with pockets and brads
2- one subject spiral notebooks - college ruled
1 package white, ruled 3x5 index cards-100ct
1 - pencil bag (to be kept by student and taken from class to class)
#2 pencils - at least 20
Blue Pens - at least 10
Red Pens - at least 10
2 yellow highlighters
Handheld pencil sharpener
Crayola map pencils - 12 count
40% Daily Work
60% Major Grades
Homework will be assigned as reinforcement of regular classroom instruction after concepts and skills have been taught.
Option to Redo Two (2) Daily Grades and One (1) Major Grade Per a 9-Weeks
on which the student makes below a 70. The highest possible grade on a Redo
Daily/Major is a 70.
Redo's will consist of a "Self-Survey". Using your daily/major grade (with missed question numbers), you will complete self survey sentences for EACH question you missed. Remember back, and think through the thoughts that led you to answer the way you did.
Example: For #______ I chose ______ because ____________________________________________________________________________________
The correct answer was ______ because ____________________________________________________________________________________
