This week in class students will be studying how the water cycle impacts our weather. We have already created a water cycle diagram for study, a cloud foldable for study, had a Smart Block session for notes about how energy moves through the water cycle, and now have fresh resources from ck12.org to tie it all together this week. Test Friday.
This week in science we will be learning about the water cycle. In Smart Block we will talk about how energy makes the water cycle possible. There are choices for videos, interactives, and a webquest on the google classroom.
This week we will finish working in class on a poster of the layers of the atmosphere and a closer look at the Troposphere. Class discussions and google classroom activities will round out the first weather unit standard.
Today in class students wrapped up their studies for simple machines; ck12.org, mikids.org, cosi.org, and Brain Pop were good resources!
Today in class students enrolled in a science class on ck12.org a free and very well done educational website. There are fresh resources about machines, simple machines, and mechanical advantage there.
Today in class students continued to study simple machines and mechanical advantage. By now everyone has a good knowledge of work, power, and can name the six simple machines.
Today in class students began to explore about work, power, mechanical advantage, and simple machines. We have text, Brain Pops, and a very good museum sponsored website about simple machines to check out this week.
Today in class students took the Forces Test and then worked on their circuits activities.
Today in class students got several options for wrapping up their learning about electrical circuits. While they do not all have to be completed, they all have good information about circuits, and will help with overall understanding.
