Wednesday – Friday, September 20 – 22 – using your science class period number, figure out the lesson that was taught on the day(s) that you were gone.
Systems – taught to periods 1, 3 on Wed September 20 and periods 4, 5, and 6 Thurs September 21
What we did in class: We learned a definition of systems and learned what the THREE SYSTEM questions are and learned how to use them to study any system.

Genius Hour Day Two – taught to periods 1, 3 on Thurs September 21 and Periods 4, 5, 6 on Fri September 22
What we did in class: We looked Genius Hour Projects and shared ideas.
What to do if you missed class: Use the links on this web site to help you look for a project AND to prepare for the SHARK TANK pitch when you present your IDEA to your peers.
Metric Measuring – taught to Period 4, 5, 6 on Wed September 20 and periods 1, 3 on Friday September 22.
What we did in class: We learned how to convert within the metric system using the chart in our notebook.
What to do if you missed class: Speak with a classmate or see Mr. Jamsa after school to learn how to use this skill if you do not know. We will be using it all year.
Monday, September 18 – Tuesday September 19th
What we did in class these two days: We are pre-testing the three major science skills we will be studying this semester. They have longer names, but in short, 1) What did you do? 2) What happened? 3) What did you learn? There is a rubric demonstrating the qualities of how to demonstrate A quality on those skills. Today and tomorrow we are seeing if any students can test out of these upcoming skill unit of studies.
What to do if you missed class: Make sure you get a copy of the ENGINEERING RUBRIC 2 from Mr. Jamsa and tape it into your notebook. After looking at the rubric, if you think that you might be able to test out of some of these engineering skills during the first semester, see Mr. Jamsa and he can arrange a time to pre-test you.
