    Learning Resources . . . what websites, videos, materials will be helpful?

     

    6th Grade:

     

    Science Objective:  Force, Motion, and Energy:  The student knows force and motion are related to potential and kinetic energy.  The student is expected to:

     6.8 A:  Compare and Contrast Potential and Kinetic Energy.

     6.8 B:  Identify and Describe the changes in position, direction, and speed of an object when acted upon by unbalanced forces.

     6.8 C: Calculate average speed using distance and time measurements.

     6.8 D: Measure and Graph changes in motion

     

    Moody Web Page:  There is a link titled "Science Instructional Videos" that will be updated regularly with videos to help clarify, explain the current concepts students are learning.

    Helpful website on Minerals:

    7th Grade:

    Science Objective: Organisms and environments. The student knows that reproduction is a characteristic of living organisms and that the instructions for traits are governed in the genetic material. The student is expected to:

    7.14A-  define heredity as the passage of genetic instructions from one generation to the next generation;

    7.14B-  compare the results of uniform or diverse offspring from sexual reproduction or asexual reproduction; and

    7.14C-  recognize that inherited traits of individuals are governed in the genetic material found in the genes within chromosomes in the nucleus.
