It's hard to believe it's already February. Spring Break and State Assessments are just around the corner!
6th Grade will be continuing in our book Earth's Water and Atmosphere. We will begin a new unit on the atmosphere and on energy transfer, wind and weather. We will do a project on weather when we get to that lesson. The students will create a 3D type of weather phenomenon and explain it as if they are a meteorologist. This class impresses me with every new project so I can't wait to see what they come up with.
7th grade will continue our journey into outer space. We will begin talking about Earth's place in the Universe and learn more about our solar system. We will do a project to learn more about our Earth-Moon-Sun system which includes the seasons.
8th grade will continue with Physical Science. We will begin practicing for State Assessments and continue with our book Matter and Energy. We will learn the different types of energy, talk about thermal energy and heat, and discover the effects of energy transfer.
