TEKs Update and Homework

Week of May 2-6, 2016 -TEKS

We are currently working in tutorials with students needing to retake the Reading STAAR test. The other students are working on a research project.


For the research project, the students chose a natural disaster and have written questions to research answers for. The students will be working on finishing up their research and will begin writing an essay based on their research.


We will also still be reviewing science concepts in preparation for the Science STAAR test.

Cool Website of the Week

https://www.childrensmuseum.org/legacy-games/construct-saurus


This is on the website for the Indianapolis Children's Museum. This is a creator program that allows you to build dinosaurs. I know this sounds a bit childish, but it is far from it! You will apply the scientific principals of mass, force, and balance. Once you finally discover the correct formula for your new creature, you can take it on a test run. Also, like shopping for cars, you want to know the stats on you dinosaur. Stats are displayed for speed, defense, attack, balance, and leg support. Try it out!!!
