β€œThe world looks so different after learning science. For example, trees are made of air, primarily. When they are burned, they go back to air, and in the flaming heat is released the flaming heat of the sun which was bound in to convert the air into tree, and in the ash is the small remnant of the part which did not come from air that came from the solid earth, instead. These are beautiful things, and the content of science is wonderfully full of them. They are very inspiring, and they can be used to inspire others.”


-Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize-winning physicist

Science 6 Update: Time Capsules Due Tomorrow!

Hi All,
Just a reminder that the Time Capsule Activity is due tomorrow (Tuesday, June 5th).  If you've misplaced the instructions packet, which includes the 'Student Survey', I've posted it to Edlio in the "Body Systems Unit" page.

Science 7: Interactive Study Guide Answers Posted

The Interactive Study Guide Answers for Science 7 are posted in the "Unit 7: Chemistry" folder.  It will be the first file.  You can ignore #11-13 on the last page- nothing like that will be on tomorrow's Opportunity.
We are in the home stretch!  Don't stress, but be prepared to show me what you've learned about chemistry over the past few weeks.  There won't be too many balancing equations problems, so don't over-study that.  A special treat for those of you that are paying attention: You can bring a one-sided, 3"X5" note card with any notes you'd like on it with you into the Opportunity tomorrow. :)
See you soon!

Hi All,
The study guide for your last Opportunity of the year (yay!) is posted on Edlio- for 6th grade it is in the "Science 6, Unit 8, Body Systems" folder, and for 7th grade it is in the "Science 7, Unit 7, Chemistry" folder (under the picture of me).
Happy studying!
