Thursday, November 10th
Objective:With my team, we will accurately measure the landscape at our chosen sites using the Gizmo, precisely map its location, and then write three sources of possible experimental error in complete sentences.
What we did today:We learned how to use the Gizmo. We went outside to our test plots and mapped the exact location where they were being placed and then recorded data regarding the landscape so that we have a baseline from which to compare it after a large rain. We also wrote down sources of error.
If you missed today: You will have to see Mr. Jamsa during AG or after school to make up for the points you missed today during this lab.
Wednesday, November 9
Objective:With my team, we will write two good hypotheses for the Erosion-Deposition Inquiry.
What we did today: We looked at how to use the “Gizmo,” the device that will help us measure erosion and deposition outside. We went outside to look for spots that would experience erosion and deposition at the next large rain.
If you missed today:You will have to set up a time after school or during AG to make up lost points for this lab.
Tuesday, November 8
Objective: Can you locate a spot on the Mark Twain property that will erode more and another spot that will experience more deposition than the Jamsa test plot?
What we did in class today:We took notes on erosion and deposition as we framed the Erosion and Deposition Inquiry which will run for a few weeks.
If you missed today:Take notes on erosion and deposition from the power point you can download below. These go on page 58 or 60 of your SNB.
Monday, November 7
T-Form is due in 16 days. There are also changes on the What’s New section of the Science Fair tab. Be organized – communicate with Mr. Jamsa – and find a great project.
Objective: We will demonstrate our knowledge of our assigned cycle and our effort the last five days with our draft or completed art cycle project.
What we did in class today: After announcements, we worked on our cycle art projects for the last time in class.
If you missed today: Cycle art projects are due at the end of the day Thursday, November 11th. They will be entered in the gradebook over the weekend.
