Wow…another exciting DAWG WIN!!!! I don’t know if my heart can take many more close games! 🙂
In Physical Science this week, we are beginning SCIENCE FAIR!! This will be a huge project, and will require time spent both in class and at home. On Monday, we practiced steps of a science fair project with a Bubble Gum lab. Students were to work through the process of asking a question, forming a hypothesis, designing and experiment, writing procedures, collecting data, and coming up with a conclusion. This was done on a much smaller scale than what they are expected to do for Science Fair, but it helped get them motivated! On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will be in the computer lab working on finding a science fair project, and beginning research! Looking forward to some awesome projects!
In Georgia Studies, we are finishing up our unit on the Nation’s first government. We have talked about the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the First and Second Continental Congresses, the Constitutional Conventions, and the U.S. Constitution. We spent some time looking at the Articles in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the people responsible for starting our new government. We will test on Thursday.
The 9 weeks is coming to a close, so anyone who needs to retest, must do so before Thursday!
