    Classwork

    All of the student's work will be available to see in Google Classroom. I will create a new topic for each week. In each topic the assignments will be listed by their date and title of the assignment. Any and all documents associated with the assignment will be available in the assignment. For labs and Lectures a recording will be posted as well for absent students or students who wish to see it again.

     

    Class Description and Goals

    Science is mankind’s effort to learn about our world through the processes of observation and experimentation. Along with learning basic science processes and skills, our class will be focusing on the following areas this year:

    Unit 1 – Scientific Processes & Investigating Flow of Energy
    Unit 2 – Organisms & Their Environments
    Unit 3 – Factors Affecting Earth Systems
    Unit 4 – Characteristics of the Solar System
    Unit 5 – Cell Structures and Functions
    Unit 6 - Body Systems & Homeostasis
    Unit 7 – Plant Systems & Homeostasis
    Unit 8 – Genetics
    Unit 9 – Adaptations in Plants & Animals

    My main goal as your teacher is to help students succeed both in the classroom and in life. Science is a fascinating and applicable subject that helps us better understand the workings of the world around us. Even more important, though, I want each student to fall in love with learning. No matter how old we get, our ability to learn and understand new things plays an important role in our lives. I want each student to become lifelong learners!
