5th Science

Weather: This week we will begin our explorations on the weather. We will start off by understanding the layers of the atmosphere and move on the the water cycle. Once we know how water moves, we turn our attention to how weather is created and how it is different from climate.

6th Science

Dirt on Soil. After you present your Safest Place in America campaigns, we will move directly to the differences between weathering an erosion. Building on that background information we begin to examine the importance and value of soil as a renewable resource.

7th Science

Genetics. You will present your Human Body redesigns on Monday. We will then begin our Genetics unit by "Touring the basics" and developing the beginning of our concept map for the unit. As we move through the week, we will conduct a trait inventory, and begin to discover Mendel's work.

8th Engineering
We will work to submit your entries for the different competitions on Monday. We will make sure that everything is in the correct format. Once we are done, we will begin our next challenge by exploring how sound travels. You will have an opportunity to use your phones!
