We had an awesome time in Washington, D.C.!  Thanks for everyone who went and who made it such a memorable trip.  The students completely nailed their recitation of the Gettysburg Address and they got to greet and chat up many veterans who were there for Honor Flights.  Great times were had and fond memories created!

This month in 8th grade science the students will begin their science fair projects.  Their projects are to be completed on their own, and are due on November 16.  In Science class, they will begin to study forces and Newton’s laws of motion.

In 7th grade science, students will learn about water and the atmosphere as they begin their studies about weather.

Here is my student of the month:

WORDS TO LIVE BY:

 

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.  I encourage ideas for these meetings as well.  

Here is the list of meetings this year:

October 9 and 23

November 6 and 20

December 4

January 8 and 22

February 5

March 5 and 19

April 16

May 7 and 21

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!
