KEEP YOUR PACKET TOGETHER! You will fill in the parts as they are due and your parents and teacher will sign off on page 3 as they check each part. Do not pull your packet apart.
Go to this page if you lost your packet and need to print it again. I will not be making more copies of such a large packet. Note that there are 2 parts because there are so many pages of information.
This is the 2nd year that Jose de Diego was invited to participate. Last year Diego’s robotics team was honored as the only CPS middle school invited to participate with high school robotics teams.
6th grade- Earth Model. Students were given the shape (started as 4 circles which attach together). You must put at least 2 facts per layer to achieve a level 3 “meets” expectations. Adding more facts will earn you points toward a level 4 “exceeds.” This project is due NO LATER than Friday. Write your name and homeroom number on the world with the continents. The facts can be on any part of the paper with that layer- For example, you do not have to write so tiny that it fits in the skinny area of the crust.
7th grade- variables sheet due Tuesday. You will also get on Wed which will be due Thurs.
Quiz Tuesday on Observation, Inference and Variables. You will need to identify statements as observation or inference. You will need to identify examples as one of the 3 kinds of variables: independent, dependent or control. You will use examples from Dr. Goldberger’s pellagra experiment and from our sensitivity experiment (with the toothpicks).
Quiz Wednesday on the structure of the Earth- layers, and formation of volcanoes. You will need to label the layers of the earth and describe each layer. For volcanoes you will need to match each type and describe how they form. Volcano types include fountain, curtain and flow.
I hope you enjoyed your summer and are looking forward to the beginning of a new school year. I will be joining Jose de Diego Community Academy as the 6th grade science teacher.
