Wow! The month of August flew by! The start of September
continues with our study of the world of science and further explains
scientific knowledge and the tools that scientistsí use to deepen their
understanding of the natural world that surrounds them. By the end of the unit,
students will understand how scientific knowledge develops through scientific
explanations, societiesí acceptance of these explanations, how science changes,
and how models are used as tools in science to help better understand and
predict changes that we cannot directly observe.
Advanced students need to continue to work on their science
fair projects. Please pay close attention to due dates and use the PDF files
located above the calendar for useful information. Each student also has a
packet of information with examples of each component of the science fair
project located in their binders.
Below, you will also find PDF files of the notes that we take in class and the learning goals for the chapter that we are currently covering. Learning goals packets are given the day we start each chapter and are due the day we take the chapter test.
