During the year, your child will be studying the following topics: Nature of Science, Atmosphere and Weather, Earth’s structure – change over time, Plate Tectonics, and Astronomy.
This year, the science textbooks will allow students to write in them. The book will be kept in the classroom, but the student will have a folder with the pages that we are currently studying in his/her binder. Students will receive the necessary information to complete homework assignments and study for tests and/or quizzes.
We want to make the most of each minute in class. Students are expected to be on time, with materials out, and ready to work each day when the bell rings. Homework will normally be assigned the first part of the week and usually be due at the end of the week. Please bring a positive attitude, be kind to others, be respectful, and make good choices. I thoroughly enjoy teaching science and want all of my students to succeed and enjoy the class.
Homework and Late/Makeup work:
If you are absent for an assignment, you are responsible to make up the work for full credit. Students have one day to make up work for each day of absence to receive full credit. Late work will be accepted up to 3 days with a penalty of 1 letter grade for each day it is late.
