Experiments & Activities:
Students will be experiencing science in ways never before imagined throughout this school year. Experimental activities will occur at least once a week. The students will be manipulating and handling live organisms, dissecting, simulating environmental problems, experimenting, using technology. and participating in a wide variety of other activities. In order to partake in all these experiences, the safety contract that both you and your parents signed should be reviewed to ensure complete precautions are taken for all involved.
Students must have one binder that contains only SCIENCE materials. Within this notebook, students are required to keep their class notes, assignments, handouts and daily starters. Keeping an organized notebook can become a difficult task, and I am willing to help in whatever way that your child may need.
