Science Grades 7A and 7B

Friday May 22  and Monday May 25:  We will observe the Memorial Day holiday.  Please use this time to take a break.  However, you may also use this time to make up missing work.  

Thank a veteran, and/or active service member and remember those veterans who went before us.  

As we are aware, there will not be written progress reports for the third trimester. please check students’ progress on powerschool.  Assignments and grades are posted and will be updated this week.

Please complete all assignments by Wednesday, May 27 8:00 A.M. Grades must be finalized.    I am updating grades.  Please make sure to complete all assignments.  Check power school and if a grade is not posted, or is recorded as a zero, make sure to complete the assignment.  I will go back over everyone’s grades.  

May 19:  Seventh grade art projects:  Please complete your art projects and submit them to Mrs. Ferrara by May 29.  

May 15: Please make sure to take the quizzes for Chapters 22, 23 and 24. I checked the website for our textbook again for the quizzes and revised the instructions in google classroom.  The instructions should allow you to the site to complete the quiz assignments.   I have been receiving your grades through the textbook website and via e-mail.  Most of you have completed the quiz assignments.  If you have not yet completed them make sure to complete them (for all three chapters)by Monday, May 18.

Please make sure to complete all assignments.  Check power school and if a grade is not posted, or is recorded as a zero, make sure to complete the assignment.  I will go back over everyone’s grades.

At home labs should be completed.  Send a short report, and picture (optional) of your lab.  We will be studying plant life in our next science module.  Please do the lab on plant life.  The lab will take some time as we are waiting for your seeds to begin the growing process.

Please be reminded that I am not penalizing students for turning in late work. The objective is have students continue to progress in science and add on to concepts previously studied.  We studied matter, and the states of matter.  We looked at physical versus chemical changes.  Now, we are looking at how matter moves, and how changes occur.  Virtual labs and at home lab activities have been posted to help reinforce the concepts being studied.  Lab materials are easily obtained; they are common household items.  They can be found in Dollar General, supermarkets,  and Wal-Mart.

Assignments are posted daily.  Assignments posted for my classes should be done the day it is assigned. I understand you may have had difficulty opening the assignments.  I will not penalize you for a late assignment.  However, you must complete the assignments within two days so as not to fall behind.

Please be reminded that students must complete assignments on Kahn Academy and/or Google Classroom.  The assignments will be graded.

Google Classroom will be used while school is closed.

The class code for 7A and 7B is
