End of 1st Quarter....November 3rd!!
Fun'd Run.....October 21
This is an example of what my board looks like in my room. when students are absent, they can get copies of each of the INB pages, pick up papers we handed back, and check the planner calendar for what they missed. In addition, my student aides will make sure they have made a one-one contact with each student who was absent to help them get what they need. My website is also a great resource, but if you can't always get to it, just tell me you need to meet with me and we can find a time!
This week we will be looking at the Background/Research, and the Hypothesis sections of the Scientific Method. . On Friday I'm giving a summative quiz over independent variables, dependent variables, controlled variables (constants), the control, the scientific question, and the hypothesis. Remember this score is 80% of the their grade so a couple nights of quizzing, reviewing videos, looking at the INB pages 16-21, and looking back over handouts wouldn't be a bad idea.

Creating Our Own Experiments
Team up with your son/daughter this week!
Search together for an example of a current event/experiment. Work together to define the independent variables, dependent variables, controls, and constants. This will be great, relevant practice for the quiz on Friday!
