Welcome back to a short week everyone!  Today we reviewed Unit 1 material by playing Kahoot and discussing the phase change diagram.  Students will test tomorrow!  Their Review guide is also due Wednesday as well.  Please remind your student to complete the packet and study for the test!  On Thursday we will begin talking about atomic theory, and how it has evolved over time.  We will learn about the scientists and discoveries that shaped the theory. Math and Science Students will continue studying periodic table, how it is arranged, and patterns within it. We will have a quiz on this information on Friday.  They should also be turning in their Science Fair project ideas today, with revisions due as needed over the course of the week.

I hope everyone is enjoying their extra time to relax this week!  Wednesday and Thursday Cores 1-4 will be learning more about acids and bases, and doing a lab to explore these concepts.  When we come back Monday we will finish our write-ups and then discuss exothermic and endothermic reactions.  Core 5 will continue working on Counting atoms, and move to balancing equations next week. Now that our web pages are up and running, I will be posting at least weekly to update parents and students on our plans for the week, and posting quizzes and test on the calendar.  So please, check back frequently, or subscribe to the calendar for notifications!
