This week in class, we focused on the scientific Habits of Mind. These are characteristics that we encourage all year long in our students while they are thinking and acting like scientists. Students took a short vocabulary quiz about these words in class on Friday. Scores will be entered into Infinite Campus over the weekend. We also started preparing for our first experiment, the Fizz Inflator Investigation, that will begin on Monday.
Thanks to all who were able to make it out to open house last night. It was great to meet you face to face! If you weren't able to attend, I've included a link to the slideshow that was presented below. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me anytime. Thank you!

Is this page just for parents and guardians?
No! This blog is for anyone who wants to know what is going on in our class (that should include students too!). Just because the language is written with parents/guardians in mind, that doesn't mean that students won't benefit from checking in with this blog. It just means that parents don't have to wade through all of the resources posted under the instructional unit section of this site. Likewise, that section of the website isn't meant to be a "parent-free" zone. Parents/guardians can use the resources posted there to help their student or just to stay in touch with what's going on in the classroom.
