No Homework

Monday September 29

Students worked on a pumpkin web quest today but we were having internet issues with our wifi.  I was hoping to do our pumpkin assessment tomorrow but we only got 20 pumpkins donated and we need at least 60.  So..... I've decided to work on the pumpkin webquest this week and students always get free pumpkins at the Pumpkin Festival so . . . we can get some pumpkins from there and do our activity on Monday and Tuesday of next week.  Lets hope that works out.

No homework this week but if you have been out, there is a copy of the web quest questions on our science page (go to the forms and docs page) and you can download it from there.  I also put a link to a site that will help a lot with the pumpkin questions on the "useful links" page.

Friday September 26

Students looked at the characteristics of dicots and monocots and then color coded a diagram according to the characteristics of each.  They will use this diagram to study for their test.  All next week we will do "pumpkin" themed activities to correlate with the Pumpkin Festival.  The following week we will resume plants and probably have our test by the end of the week.

Thursday September 25

Students graded both their Flower to fruit questions and their Angiosperms and Gymnosperm sheets.  Tomorrow we will classify monocots and dicots.
