Let the Science Fair begin!
Wednesday, January 5th
Objective: Today I will outline energy transformation examples given on a study guide.
What we did in class today: We took notes on what is an energy transformation, we went over examples of many energy transformations, and we worked on a study guide at the end of class.
If you missed today: Copy the notes from a classmate and ask questions of Mr. Jamsa afterwards. We will be touching these topics over the next three weeks, but science fair begins tomorrow so we will be leaving these behind for awhile.
Tuesday, January 4th
Objective:Today I will differentiate among various energy types on the class exit quiz.
What we did in class today: 1) We looked at a varsity level Pendulum lab write up and wrote down ways we could improve for next time. 2) We watched movies and took notes on seven different energy types. 3) We furthered out understanding with a card sort and an exit quiz.
If you missed today: Your signed progress reports are due back tomorrow, Thursday. Science fair projects that are dealing with humans and animals need to have typed procedures turned in by tomorrow for the science committee meeting. Finally, find a classmate and copy the notes that we took in class into your own notebook.
Monday, January 3rd
Objective: I will review key science concepts by completing a review crossword puzzle.
What we did in class today: We looked at our grades from the Pendulum Inquiry, we worked on review crosswords, we broke into groups for science fair, and we shared information with the Hufflepuff science fair students.
If you missed today: Obtain a review crossword puzzle and progress report from Mr. Jamsa. Make sure you are keeping up with the dates and information about science fair on this web page under the science fair tab.
