G7 Week 01

Friday, September 9th – F & H period

Today in science class: Students in F & H periods continued their instrument-assisted observations of the Concord grape today.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight, but all Grade 7 science students should make plans this week to make sure they have the required class materials by next Monday, September 12th.

Thursday, September 8th – All periods

Today in science class: Students in A, F, & H periods continued their observations of the Concord grape today. However, unlike on Tuesday and Wednesday, students were given a special set of dissection tools to support their investigations.

Students were also given a ‘formula’ to follow for their written work: observation –> justification. Here is an example: “The object contains liquid. I know this because my petri dish, which was dry, is now wet after I poked a hole through the object’s outer covering.”

Homework: There is no science homework tonight, but all Grade 7 science students should make plans this week to make sure they have the required class materials by next Monday, September 12th.

Wednesday, September 7th – A & H period

Today in science class: Students in A & H period were given samples of Concord grapes (uva Americana) and asked to describe their sight in writing. In A period, many students were given permission to dissect the grapes and begin exploring their insides.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight, but all Grade 7 science students should make plans this week to make sure they have the required class materials by next Monday, September 12th.
