-We did our assessment today.

Math 7

-We did our assessment today.

-Mathletics tasks are due at the end of the week.

Science 6

-Students were given a handout of notes. We discussed forces involved with flying. Students highlighted key words and added to notes and diagrams to individualize the notes for their learning. Links to videos for review are included in the notes posted below.

-Students should reread notes to learn new vocabulary. The expectation will be that students can speak about forces in French.

Science 8

Math 8

-Test will be Wednesday for section 6.1 to 6.5

-Questions to practice for test that are for homework p. 350 Q 1,2,3,5,8, et 9

Math 7

-We did a formative test today.

Science 6

-We had a handout about how the wings affect flight. We read from our book and students wrote notes on the forces.

Science 8

-We had a maker space in class today where students created objects that floated and objects that sank in order to come up with a list of factors that affect floating and sinking. A lot of mess, a lot of fun and a lot of learning!

Math 8

-We corrected the first side of the review sheet. Please see notes posted for examples.

-Students are to complete the second side for Monday.

Math 7

-We had our monthly assembly to day. For the few minutes we had after the assembly, students did an activity to practice solving expressions.

Science 6

-Today we went over new vocabulary and took some notes. We also discussed that forces exist and act on objects even if we do not see them. We draw forces in science drawing by using an arrow to show the influence of the force.

Science 8

-Today we reviewed material from grade 7 related to the three phases of mater and the particule theory of matter. We did some guided reading from the text to build vocabulary and develop our science literacy. Notes were handed out to review grade 7 material that we will be using in grade 8. Students have a worksheet to complete for next class. Time was given in class to work on it.
