Science

Hello All! This week in science we jumped into studying all about cells. Students are currently learning about how a cell functions by trying to creatively model cell function. Rather than filling a bowl with candy to model the cell though, students will be thinking about how real life jobs and objects represent different cell parts. For example, a principal is a good model of the nucleus in a cell because she runs a school, just like the nucleus runs a cell.


There is one grade in the gradebook, it is an exit ticket that we did over organelles on Thursday, if your child is missing that, there is a good chance that they just forgot to put their name on it, I have a rather large stack of no- names. We can check when they get back to school on Monday. Have a great weekend!
