June 3 Update
For our final assignment in Physical Science this year, I have put together a Ted Talk on careers in science, a website to explore many different options in science careers and a graphic organizer comparing two careers that interest you. The Careers in Science assignment can be found on the google classroom.
May 27th Update 
This week's lesson focuses on a quick preview of what to expect in your High School science class next year. We have compiled a lesson for those of you entering biology an another for students beginning with Earth Science next year.  There are quite a few topics that were introduced in 6th and 7th grade so you will be pleasantly surprised to see the great foundation that you already have built to prepare you for High School.  The flipgrid site is still open if you want to send a greeting out to your class - I would love to see how you all are doing!

This week we are focusing on a topic that was difficult for some students - balancing chemical equations. The activities include :
-watch a 5 minute TED video on The Law of Conservation of Mass
-complete a simulation of balancing chemical equations on PHet
-Jefferson Labs balancing practice , 20 problems total from 2 different levels (send me a screen shot of your results)
-Flip grid video of your lesson feedback and how you are doing at home.
Everything is posted on the google classroom as well. 
Thanks for completing the weekly lessons!

May 13 Update
The science lesson for this week is called Plagued by Disease. In this lesson, the student plays the role of an emergency room doctor and must diagnose a patient based on the symptoms that they present when arriving at the ER. There is a medical chart for the students to fill out using online resources to investigate the disease. Lastly, the students are asked to create a public service announcement to prevent the spread of the disease. Here is a link to the Plagued by Disease activity and it is also on my google classroom.
