Happenings for May 11th-15th
Happy Monday! I hope you are had a relaxing weekend and enjoyed time celebrating moms and the wonderful women who may not be your mom but who loves you like a mom.
So 8th graders, many have not turned in the items for the manufacturing unit. Please understand that students have had 6 weeks to complete the 7 parts of this unit. The first 4 parts should have only taken an hour to do total. Students may turn in work for this unit until this Friday but after that I will not accept late work as we begin our new unit today. Parents, please check in with your student daily and maybe even help them come up with a daily to do list of classwork for each class and due dates. Phone calls are going out this week for students who have not turned in assignments.
As always please make sure any question you have is specific and that you have watched videos and read directions carefully for each unit before emailing
An email has been sent regarding work that can no longer be turned in and work that is due this week.
- Our next unit is on structures please start saving recyclable materials such as food boxes, plastic bottles, tubes, straws and paper cups. You may also want to consider materials found at the dollar store such as craft sticks and foam board. We will be researching various types of structures, you will be looking up some information regarding a structure and you will build that structure, which is why we need to save recycled materials.
Please make sure to check your google classroom for the new assignment. I am so excited to see what ideas you come up with for a board game! You have a total of three weeks to create a game and a set of rules. I really want you to include your family in getting ideas and having them test out your game. Have fun!
