G6 Week 14

Last week in science!

Monday, December 7th

Today in science: It’s a model project submission day! A number of students submitted their final digestive system organ models today because they wanted to be eligible to (potentially) receive 100% of the project points. Here’s a summary of the two 6th grade periods…

In E period, we saw the first part of Anna’s slide show about the large intestine, while Team Lorenzo/Max turned in their model of the stomach and Team Greer/Bella turned in their model of the oesophagus/esophagus.
Remote students = Lorenzo

In F period, we saw both Levi and Laurena present and discuss their models of the oesophagus/esophagus, while while Hector and Matteo turned in their models of the stomach and Team Aida/Rosa turned in their model of the large intestine.
Absent students = Giulio, Sérgio

Homework: Only those students who have yet to complete their digestive system organ models (and accompanying presentation material(s)) have homework tonight.

Tuesday, December 8th

Today in science: It’s another model project submission day! A number of students submitted their final digestive system organ models today because they wanted to be eligible to (potentially) receive 95% of the project points. Here’s a summary of the two 6th grade periods…

In E period, we finished viewing Anna’s slide show about the large intestine and saw her demonstrate her model. Meanwhile, Team Greer/Bella showed their presentation of the oesophagus/esophagus and demonstrated their model. We are still waiting to see the models of Lenni (large intestine) and Team Lucas/Tim (small intestine).
Remote students = Lorenzo

In F period, Laurena ran her Kahoot quiz, while Team Aida/Rosa presented their large intestine model and ran their Kahoot quiz. Luca then presented his models–both big and miniaturized–of the small intestineGiulia also turned in her model of the stomach while Lucian turned in his model of the esophagus!
Remote students = Giulio
Absent students = Sérgio

Homework: Only those students who have yet to complete their digestive system organ models (and accompanying presentation material(s)) have homework tonight.

Thursday, December 10th

Today in science: It’s another model project submission day! Here’s a summary of the two 6th grade periods…

In E period, We are still waiting to see the models of Lenni (large intestine) and Team Lucas/Tim (small intestine).
Remote/absent students = Lorenzo

In F period, Sérgio presented and demonstrated his 3D model of the large intestine. Both Matteo and Giulia presented and discussed their cut-away 3D models of the stomach, while Giulio showed us two videos demonstrating his brainstorming and material collection stages of his small intestine project.
Remote/absent students = None

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Friday, December 11th

Today in science: It’s the final model project submission day! Here’s a summary of the two 6th grade periods…

In E period, we saw Team Lucas/Tim demonstrate their model of the small intestine. We are still waiting to see Lenni’s model of the large intestine, which should happen on Monday or Tuesday of next week. After today’s presentation, students were asked to complete the model project self-reflection form and turn in their A3-sized research paper.
Remote/absent students = None

In F period, Giulio finished showing us his small intestine project video collection and Lucian presented his model of the esophagus. After today’s presentations, students were asked to complete the model project self-reflection form and turn in their A3-sized research paper.
Remote/absent students = Hector

Homework: For all of those students who presented their digestive system organ models this week, there is no science homework this weekend.
