Our Science unit for the first marking period will focus on the Earth, the Sun, the Milky Way galaxy, and a good portion regarding air and weather to help us to better understand other units.
Several topics we will study for the year include: The Solar System, Animal and Plant Life, Biomes, Land and Water Ecosystems, Matter, Phase Changes, and more!
Our four major systems will consist of the atmosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere.
Most science lessons will be taught through powerpoint presentations that align with our curriculum. Students will be learning how to properly take notes from the powerpoint presentations. All assessments will be based off of our class notes and powerpoint slides.
Assessments will be announced at least one week in advance. Study guides will be provided.
