“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. - J.R.R. Tolkien.  This week our learning target set their sight on the chemical and physical properties of matter and how those properties make it unique. This next investigation students will continue to utilize a Claim, Evidence & Reasoning statement as well as scientific modeling and experimentation.
In the coming weeks we are exploring the structure and properties of matter including determining mass, volume and density.  We will utilize our understanding of matter to help us separate it by both physical and chemical properties.
We are nearing the conclusion of our first exploratory unit of study (fire ants forming floating rafts) and have been introduced to scientific inquiry and engineering design.  There are seven learning targets assessed in this unit worth 80 possible points.  Those points are determined by a rubric based on a submission of students' CER and Lab documentation. Check the parent portal at the end of next week for your child's academic progress.

This weekend we welcome the season of change, Fall.  We are learning the foundations of science inquiry and engineering design.  Over the past few days, we have learned the answer to the question, What is Science?

Back to School Night & Picture Day

Both Back to School night and picture day is on Monday, September 17th.  Team 7-3 photos will be taken at 12:15 and all students will be photographed regardless of package selection. Back to School night starts promptly at 6PM.  Parents will follow their child's schedule on a "C" day.  The students have copied their schedule and should provide you with a copy before attending.  As a reminder, this is an evening for parents. I look forward to meeting you.

Welcome Back

Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back to an exciting new year of science.  This year will begin our new adventure into destinations unknown, but yet to be discovered.  We will explore a vast array of science phenomena and through our understanding gain new insight into the natural world.
