Advanced :  I have given all of the students packets and folders for their at home science fair projects.  I will include a link to this packet below. The packet has due dates and explanations for the assignments.

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year

Hello,

I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself on this blog which will be a great place to see what your children are working on in science class. I will be updating this as the year progresses to assist you in helping your children with what we are doing or any homework. I will be including links to their online textbooks below.  This link will include digital lesson,audio versions , and digital versions of their text. Reviewing their digital lesson and texts will be very helpful for them at home.

The students have a cell project that will be due April 7th.  It was originally due when we returned form spring break but I have extended the due date because we were unable to cover all the material before we started Human Growth and Development.  We are starting Human Growth and Development in class today.
