Today we started the new unit on ATOMS! We watched an introduction video about atoms and spoke a little about where we are going with the unit.

Also, books were handed out today. The assignment is listed below. Please bring books to class tomorrow. Answer question #5 – #9 in the book on pp 180-183. This is a consumable book so write your answers in the book with the questions. We will visit the on line version tomorrow.

Tomorrow is Picture Retake Day. It is for returns of previously taken pictures that need to be redone, absent during first picture day, and new purchases. Pictures will be taken in the morning.
