The Long Hiatus

The second trimester is over and third is beginning. My personal goal is to help all students be better informed about what is happening in class, and parents to know what they should see at home.

Hopefully we can work together towards greater student success in the third trimester.

Activities for the week of March 8-11 are as follows:

Tuesday - March 8th
Lunar Lollypop Lab Due
Moon Phase Quiz
Gravity exploration activity in class.

Want to see footage of just one of hundreds of science experiments conducted on the moon? Check out the following link:

MCA test preparation - The Three Little Red Riding...?

Thursday March 10th
