Hello Students and Families,            

 

7th grade Life Science

We have been busy learning about the human body systems.  We have covered the digestive, excretory, circulatory, and respiratory systems.  In December we will learn about the nervous and the endocrine system.   We will then wrap up the body systems with the frog dissection.  This is a very cool activity and the kids get really excited about it.  After the frog we will move into evolution, classification and genetics. 

The upcoming content can be very challenging.  Please continue to encourage your student to study regularly and complete homework on time.  I also give extra credit for the completing the online vocabulary flash cards and online practice tests.

8th grade Physical Science

In November we began the Chemistry unit.  The students learned about the different ways matter can be described, the different states of matter (solids, liquids & gases), and the way matter changes states.  In December we will continue with Chemistry.  The students will learn how matter is measured, the physical and chemical properties of matter, and difference types of physical and chemical changes.

The upcoming content can be very challenging.  Please continue to encourage your student to study regularly and complete homework on time.  I also give extra credit for the completing the online vocabulary flash cards and online practice tests.

 Online Textbook & Bonus Activities - Students will be given an access code for their class period during the first week of school (they are also located below by class periods).  They must register using the instruction sheet that will be provided (located below).  At the web site students will find their textbook online and additional activities to reinforce what they are learning in the classroom.  They will also have the opportunity to get bonus points on vocabulary quizzes if they test themselves prior with the online flashcards (they must have a parent witness and sign off).  This will help them prepare/study for all vocabulary quizzes.  One week prior to the chapter tests students will have access to the online chapter practice test.  They will also have the opportunity to get bonus points on for all chapter tests.  Again, this will help them prepare/study for all chapter tests.  The web site is - www.pearsonsuccessnet.com
