Reminder: Lithosphere Test Coming Soon

Dear Parents,

Just a quick heads up that we have a lithosphere test coming soon! Tentatively it is scheduled for Friday — but that may get pushed to Monday given that we have this Wednesday off from school due to Veteran’s Day.

The BEST way to study for the test is to use Brainpop:

http://www.brainpop.com

There are videos covering every topic in our curriculum. I would recommend that students watch the video for any concept that they are struggling with. I would also recommend that they take the quiz AND complete one of the “Activities.”

Embedded below is a handout that lists every Brainpop video for every unit that we study in sixth grade. If you want to prepare your child for the test, print it out and have them work one by one through the videos listed in the Lithosphere unit.

As an FYI: I’ve been encouraging your students to work on these videos for the past two weeks without luck! There hasn’t been a single video watched by a single student yet. That’s got me a bit worried from a test preparation standpoint.

Hope this helps,
Bill Ferriter
