    *Due Monday: Research Questions

    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 knows that the Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it just changes form. The student is expected to:

     6.8A - Compare and contrast potential and kinetic energy.

     6.9AInvestigate methods of thermal energy transfer, including conduction,convection, and radiation;

    6.9B- Verify through investigations that thermal energy moves in a predictable pattern from warmer to cooler until all the substances attain the same temperature such as an ice cube melting. 

    6.9C - Demonstrate energy transformations such as energy in a flashlight battery changes from chemical energy to electrical energy to light energy. 

     

    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.

     

    7th Grade:

    Science Objective: Organisms and environments. The student knows that living systems at all levels of organization demonstrate the complementary nature of structure and function. The student is expected to:

    7.12B  identify the main functions of the systems of the human organism, including the circulatory, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, digestive, excretory, reproductive, integumentary, nervous, and endocrine systems;

    7.12C  recognize levels of organization in plants and animals, including cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and organisms

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

     *Much of the research done for the Science Content in this ELU will be done through investigations.

    "Quizlet" Website: Students can practice Unit Vocabulary through games url: www.quizlet.com; in the "search quizlet" box type in mrsnulisch to access set. 

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

     Students can also use Science Notebook Word Bank to study the Vocabulary for many units. 

                        

     
    Planning ahead... What are the upcoming assignments, projects, tests, etc. for which students should plan?
    6th Grade:  Thursday- Presentations are due! Bring your cooking apparatus and your presentation skills.
    7th Grade:  
    Tuesday 10/24- 3D models and presentations are due.
