09.20.2021 - Monday -

 Hi Scientists; Below is the YouTube link for today's video recap and attached are screen shots from the board. Note the ten Key Terms for Week #6. Check out the Full Moon this evening if you get a chance. Predict, based upon our moon observations, what phase will the moon show us this Halloween?

I'll post a write up that recaps our use of "The Martian" to study soil, radioactive decay, and chemical reactions. The seventh grade standards incorporate engineering and we're touching on a bit of chemistry and Newton's Laws.
Happy Monday! ... Scott Forbes

Back to School night and today's notes

 Hi Scientists ... Two video links today. The first is our Welcome Back (Back to School Night) video with an overview of our seventh grade science class.

This next link will take you to a recap of today's notes ...
We, as usual, have two assignments due this week: our weekly quiz and a note check. The quiz is posted in the Google Classrooms (it's online and open through Sunday, although I encourage everyone to complete the quiz by the end of school Friday.) Our note-check this week is the Key Terms for Week #4. There's ten Key Terms and these will take us through Week #5.
Have a great evening. Today's notes are attached and also in Google Classroom. Also at www.pacificascience.org.

09.09.2021 - Thursday - Quiz and notes check

 Hi Scientists;

Our Week #4 quiz is now on-line and ready to take. I'll paste the link, and access code, below. The awesome PSD tech team has cleared the test site to be used within the district so you may take the quiz at home OR school now. Remember, you get two attempts (if you like.) Only the higher of the two test attempts is recorded in the gradebook. Also, the quiz from last week is, again, open through Friday.
Our "spot check" - this week - is a picture of your ten definitions for Week #4. (These definitions will carry us through Week #5 as well.)

'hope you're having a wonderful week!
