BirdBrain Readings have started. Remember you can re-take a reading as many times as needed until the due date (Fridays at 2:30).

5th Science

Now that we know about cells, it is time to understand how those tiny cells become organisms. We will make models of the circulatory, digestive and respiratory systems, and delve deeply into how these systems (and all others) work together. Don't be grossed out as we perform digestion in the classroom! Human Body Systems  website

6th Science

We continue to work on the Plate Tectonics unit. Now that we know how strike-slip faults cause earthquakes, we will plot earthquakes around the world and try to determine a pattern. We will move on to investigating how the viscosity of magma affects the shape of the volcano from which it erupts. Time to put those volcanos you made to good use.
7th Science
You thought you were done with cells, right? Well, we barely just started. We begin our Cells'RUs project by investigating the four macromolecules responsible for an organism's function, and even go as far as investigating just what those pesky nutrition labels really mean.
8th Engineering
We continue to work on the different topics presented by the Lexus Eco Challenge. Remember to be as convincing as possible when you present your work on Thursday.
