I will check that students have a binder and a journal just for my
class for 10 points. Students will participate in a Peanut Lab in which
they will be describing, measuring, weighing, and drawing a peanut that
they choose out of a bowl. The goal is to help students understand
that when doing lab work they need to be very specific, descriptive, and
accurate. Students will fill out a following directions sheet to help
them understand the importance of reading and following all directions.
Students will fill out a get to know you sheet and I will share with
the students some of my background and interests. Students will be
assigned a Physical Science textbook.
