G6 Week 07

Last week in science!

Monday, October 19th

Today in science: At the start of the lesson, students were told that–in order to have their Human Mouth Model project considered as “timely” (on time)–they must agree to test their finished mouth model BEFORE the end of Friday’s science lesson (23 Oct). Students can arrange to test their model in front of their peers any day this week, but this also means that their Engineering Journal slides must also be completed by the end of Friday’s lesson. After announcements, students were given almost the entire lesson to make forward progress on their projects–both on their Engineering Journal slides and the actual model. Dr. Merritt worked individually with as many students (or teams) as he possible could throughout the lesson.

Homework: All students are encouraged to put some concentrated effort into the different parts of their Human Mouth Model project throughout the week. Regardless of which stage of the project they are at, this time should involve work BOTH on the Engineering Journal slides AND the actual model design, part selection, and/or model construction.

Tuesday, October 20th

Today in science: During today’s workshop, Dr. M asked students to (tentatively) choose a day this week in which to demonstrate the final version of their human mouth model to their classmates. He also reminded students that all slides in the Engineering Journal must be completed by the end of class on Friday.

F period: Hector, Matteo/Lucian, Aida/Rosa, Giulia/Laurena, Sérgio

Homework: Students were supposed to submit their Engineering Journals to the Google Classroom before the end of Friday’s science lesson. Any student who forgot to do so should go the Science Google Classroom and be sure to Submit (Turn in) their completed Engineering Journal for the Human Mouth Model project.
