We have began the unit on Human Body Systems. Please check the Unit 3 tab for updates weekly! Currently, you will find a Parent Letter explaining the main content for the unit and the vocabulary. I will upload PowerPoint as we progress through the unit 🙂
Students have begun working on their Cell Unit Project. The students will be creating a poster to compare the structure and function of the organelles to objects they are used to.
Below you will find a copy of the rubric:
Cell Analogy Project Rubric
We have begun our next unit, Cells. The students have received the introduction to cells notes (about 8 or 9 pages). Please make sure your child has everything glued in the correct order and has filled in their table of contents for these assignments. Starting next week, we will begin one of our numerous labs for this unit. The first lab is focusing on Microscopes and the difference between plant and animal cells.
I will advise your child to make flash cards of the vocabulary (found under the Unit 2 tab) to prepare them for this unit. There are many new words that may or may not be familiar with.
The first quiz for the vocabulary will be next Friday, October 27th. The students should know the cell organelles, the cell theory, and how to label a microscope. Please begin preparing now 🙂
Due to Picture Day (today) and Early Release Day (Thursday), I have decided to move the test to next Monday to allow for more review and study time for students!
Open House will be held this Thursday from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. I welcome you all to come and experience time with all of your students teachers for the year.
Ms. Payton and I look forward to seeing you!!
