Principal’s Corner
7th & 8th Grade Science

Welcome to online learning!

I know it will be an adjustment to working at home for the foreseeable future, but don’t give up and we will all get through this time of “social distancing” relatively unscathed.

To keep up with my science classes, all you have to do is check Google Classroom daily.  I will be posting everything you need there.  I will also be sitting by my computer daily during school hours in order to help answer any questions you might have.  Please email me or call if you have questions.  I won’t be using Zoom very often, but when I do, I will try to let you know well in advance so you can adjust your schedule.

Note the change to how I am asking you to share your homework with me.  I have left a video on Google Classroom to explain it.

My students of the month are all of you!  You all deserve a great load of praise and thanks for doing your best during this hard time!

Science is a tool to help solve the questions of who, what, where, when, and how.  Faith and religion are the realm of the most important question, why.

7th Grade Science at Evangelical is Earth Science and Astronomy.  We use the CPO Science curriculum with integrated lab equipment.

8th Grade Science at Evangelical is Physical Science.  As with Earth Science, we follow the CPO Science curriculum.  www.cposcience.com

All materials are in digital format and make the  use of Chromebooks ideal!  Evangelical students engage in laboratory experiences regularly that challenge their thinking skills as well as foster cooperative learning.

 

I am again having 6th-8th grade Science Club on the first and third Mondays of each month.  The first meeting of the month we will watch something educational about science.  If you would like to donate snacks and/or drinks for those meetings, I would really appreciate it.  The second meeting of the month is about doing some kind of activity/lab that we might not normally do as part of the regular curriculum.  There is a page on this website with the information about Science Club as well as our meeting dates for the year.  Click here.

DWP will continue to play a role in our lessons in science.  (Every DWP skill is absolutely essential to understanding and working with science.)

We will be doing lots of labs and investigations, we will watch videos, play games, and have fun gaining knowledge of how our universe works!
