Middle School Science Week of 10/1



Hello hello, I hope you’re ready for another great week!

6- On Monday we reviewed the types of energy and looked at different objects to identify what kinds of energy they had. Tuesday, we will be doing the Language test for NWEA, so there is no actual science class on Tuesday. On Wednesday, we will defining the different kinds of energy and starting on a worksheet for the lesson. We will work on these worksheets again on Thursday, and if they are still not done after that, they will be homework due Friday. Also on Thursday we will start a discussion about energy transformations. On Friday, we will have a Chapter 2 Lesson 1 Quiz, and then complete a kinetic and potential energy activity. On Wednesday, they will be getting their Chapter 1 tests back, and corrections for this will be due on Monday.

7- On Monday we defined the different types of energy, and we will use these definitions to examine energy in a lab on Tuesday. Wednesday they will be completing a worksheet for the lesson, which will be homework if they don’t finish in class. A quiz over this lesson (Chapter 2 Lesson 1) will be given on Thursday, and then we will start our conversation about the Law of Conservation of Energy. On Friday we will perform a lab to look closer at energy transformations and open and closed systems. On Monday, they received their Chapter 1 tests back, and corrections for this are due on Wednesday.

8- On Monday we finished our discussion and notes on the history of the atom. After this, we begun our timeline project- making a timeline of the history of the atom! They have all of class on Tuesday to work on this timeline, and if it is not finished, will be homework due Thursday. On Wednesday, we will be completing a worksheet over the lesson, and if it is not finished, will be homework due Friday. Thursday we will be reviewing what we know about protons, and then learning about neutrons and isotopes. On Friday we will learn about Marie Curie and radioactivity with an activity. On Monday, they received their Chapter 1 tests back, and corrections for this are due on Wednesday. They will have a quiz over Chapter 2 Lesson 1 next Monday.
