-We reviewed the names of the angles.  Students then had time to work in Mathletics and Netmath where they got instant feedback on their progress. 

-Names of angles and triangles should be memorized. 

-Video to review angles and triangles is placed in teams.  Click on class Notebook- student name- class notes- scroll down until you see the page. 


Science 7 and 8 

1.Research for the water project should now be completed. Students should have a list of resources that they used to find the info.    

2.Presentation: Students have chosen their method to present their findings to the class.   Time was given to create the presentation.  Bon Patron can be used to help edit their work.    

During the presentation remember to focus on: 

-Explaining the new vocabulary 

-Talk about technology use in your topic. (Equipment used) 

-Give some real life  connections or examples.  You may have pictures or video to share. 


3.The visual art piece can be created at home or at school.  It needs to be done for Monday. 

Time remaining to work on the project at school: 

The 7/8 class will have 1 class on Tuesday and two classes on Wednesday and one class on Friday to work on the project.  All tasks not completed will need to be done at home.

Math 6, 7 and 8 

Math test will be Thursday.  Please use the practice assignments and test to help you know what you need to practice.  Mathletics and Netmath have practice questions that will give you answers.  Assignments in teams have been corrected.  Check grades for feedback and answers. 


Science 7 and 8 

We have started our big water research project.   Student have a topic to research.  They are to answer the questions given and create a list of 7 to 10 vocabulary words.  They will create a project to present their findings.  The method is their choice.   They will also create a visual to show their learning. 


Remember to focus on technology use in your topic and how the science concept affects our life.  Choose a method to display your learning that is interesting to you and that showcases your strengths.  Options can be power points, stop motion, bill Nye type videos, sway....   For the visual, you may choose to do a poster, model, brochure, art piece.     Let your interest and personality help you to choose an option that interest you.   This project will be due the second week of December.   I have placed the guiding sheet in Team’s notebook.  Mme. Burque will be available once a week to help with translation and the French correction.  This project will require some work to be done at home.
