Science Update

Dear Parents,

Here’s what’s happening in science class:

Lithosphere Unit Finished: We finished our unit on the lithosphere on Thursday of last week. Students took a unit test. Grades for those tests will be going in averages sometime in the next day or so. I’m waiting until I collect extra credit and reworks from students before putting the grades in the gradebook. All in all, the students did well.

Ecosystems Unit Started: We began our ecosystems unit on Friday. The unit overview sheet is embedded at the bottom of this message. The primary goal for the unit is to learn how matter cycles through the environment. We also spend a fair bit of time looking at how flowering plants reproduce. All in all, this is a unit that the kids really enjoy. They dig learning more about how the world around them works.

Hope this helps,
Bill Ferriter
