Announcements...End of 3rd Quarter this week!!
"Nothing changes if nothing changes"
This week, we will continue a the unit covering Natural Selection and Adaptations. In this unit, we will explore how organisms change over time and we will be examining evidence that will encourage us to hypothesize about adaptations as a result of an organism's environment.
*Genetics test retakes are this week. Corrections to the previous test are the key to retaking it.
AGAIN....If the kids use their class time wisely this week, there should not be much homework. I would appreciate it if parents would take a look through and discuss the last 6-7 pages (up through pg 84) of their INBs with their kids. Again, students can make up or redo anything in my class for a better score!
Reminder: the planner, text book pages, instructional videos, handouts, and copies of the notes can also be found on my website.
