*Please note that the following are our projected lesson topics for the week and that they are subject change. Thank you for understanding and working with us.
This week we are finishing the book, The Outsiders so we will have a couple of tests on the book and a vocabulary matching assignment. We will also write some free verse poetry later this week. Next week - Tuesday and Wednesday - we will be watching the movie. It's the 2005 updated version of the 1983 The Outsiders movie, which is the complete novel version. It's rated PG-13, so if you have concerns about your child watching the movie, please let me know. Tuesday and Wednesday is also a dress up day for 7th graders. They can dress as greasers or socs those days and bring snacks for the movie. This week is the last week to take tests for AR Goals. The second genre is due on Wednesday this week also. Make sure your child turns in any missing work this week.
This week we are filling out a Religion comparison chart, a study guide for the test (highly recommended) and will discuss a topic of the class' choice.
This week in Science we will build on our Ecology unit as we study Photosynthesis along with Cellular Respiration. Our final notebook check will be on Wednesday, May 23rd. Our Science notebooks will make an excellent resource when completing the study guide and preparing for the final test. Thursday and Friday, students will complete a study guide that they are encouraged to use over the weekend to study for the end of course assessment that will be given on Tuesday, May 29th and Wednesday, May 30th.
We're putting the finishing touches on health class for this year. Monday we learned basic first-aid and practiced CPR. Wednesday and Friday we will be making a healthy vision board. Students will set goals related to different areas of health. On Friday, students may bring a healthy snack to share with the class. It's been a great year in health!!
Due to our guest presenters from Magic Valley Aeromodelers Club last Friday, we moved the due date for SWAY projects to Tuesday. Students were all notified on Friday that a link to their project needs to be turned in on Canvas before they walk through the door tomorrow. We will have students present their finished work the next couple of class periods.
Career Exploration/3D Printing
We are preparing to wrap up the quarter so any 3D printing project must have a .stl file submitted and written on the sign up sheet by Friday. Depending on the class, students will take a quarter end test on Friday of this week or next Wednesday. The test will cover the skills required to complete their lessons. If students successfully complete lessons 1-8 they will be prepared for the final test.
