First Science Assignment Due Monday

Dear Parents,

In class this week, we’ve been working on a tower building mini-lab. Students have a handout in their binders that outlines the project.

On Monday, students will have to turn in both a hypothesis and a set of conclusions for this mini-lab. In class today, we talked about what a good hypothesis looks like. Tomorrow, we’ll talk about what a good conclusion looks like.

Here are sets of exemplars that students explored in class. They can help both you and your child to determine whether or not their final products are of high quality:

Hope this helps,
