Posted by Erica Fulton on April 13, 2020 in Class News |

8th grade:

Welcome back from “spring vacation”. I hope you were able to enjoy some of the nice weather last week. How crazy it was that we had a 70 degree day and then sleet and snow last week as well.

So before break I sent you a reminder of work to complete for the next unit on manufacturing and the design process. Click this link for the unit information:


This unit was due April 22nd but has been moved back to April 24th.

Please send completed work in one email once all seven parts are completed.

7th grade:

The architecture unit was started before vacation and so we will continue to draw out our floor plans. Please remember that you are not tracing the one you made on smallblueprinter.com but you are scaling your plan.

To recap how to do that you just take the size of a room and divide it by four.

Example: The garage you made online was 20′ X 20′ (‘ = foot/feet). So 20 divided by 4=5 (20/4=5). Then you will draw the garage onto paper using a ruler and pencil at a length of 5″ by 5″. Use the same symbols for walls, doors, windows, labeling, cabinets, appliances and items in the bathroom for this drawing as you did in smallblueprinter.com.

Here is the link to the Google slide show:


This assignment was due April 22nd but is being changed to April 24th. You will need to have completed the previous assignment using smallblueprinter.com. Use the link to floorplanner.

6th Grade:

This week we will work on measuring activities. We will begin with measuring games and watch measuring videos and practicing with measuring worksheets. We will finish this week drawing a ruler out and labeling the parts.
