## Science 7

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

Abiotic Influences Assignment will be due on Thursday, March 24. Students began work on this before March break.

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

We have been working on Ecosystems- Abiotic and Biotic factors. Keep organized.

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Labs due today on "Absorb that Energy". Students can empty their science binders and throw out anything related to heat, unless it is for an overdue assignment. We start our new unit of ecosystems today.

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Today was the big heat science test. I hope everyone did well! I will be correcting them and will try to have them back before the week ends. On Thursday we did a lab titled absorb that energy. We worked on it in class and it will be due Wednesday. Our next Unit on Ecosystems starts next class. Exciting times!

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Here is the study guide for the test.

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

We are getting ready to prepare for a Unit test on Heat. This will include "Chapter 5" and "Chapter 6" booklets on Particle Theory of Matter and Heat Transfer. An outline for the test will be given tomorrow, on Tuesday. Test is Monday, February 29th. Study hard! Here are the notes for both booklets. PTM and Heat Transfer.

Tuesday, February 16th, 2015

We have been discussing heat transfer. Students are currently completing a Picture assignment on conduction, convection and radiation. It will be due Thursday, Feb 19th.

Monday, February 1st, 2015

We have been talking about Heat Transfer; conduction, convection and radiation.

Wednesday, Jan 27th, 2016 (oops, I have been writing 2015 all this month )

We spent the last few classes completing a lab titled The Plateau Problem. Handouts for the reports were given. Here is an extra copy if you lost yours. Student conducted an experiment in class and recorded the results. Lab reports are due Thursday. See Mrs B if you have any questions.

Wednesday, Jan 20th, 2015

Today we worked on a webquest for Changing States of Matter.

Thursday, Jan 14th, 2015

3 states of matter assignment due Tomorrow.

Over the past several classes we have been looking at Solids, Liquids and Gases. These are the three states of matter. Now students are working on a science assignment on comparing Solids, Liquids and Gases in terms of shape, volume, particle arrangement, space between particles and particle attractive forces. Assignment outlines given out in class. Due Friday.

Tuesday, Jan 5th, 2015

We continued talking about Temperature and Kinetic Energy today. We looked at the Design Challenge Part 3 and completed a detect the connect activity. See Mrs. Benteau for a copy if you missed class.

Monday Jan 4th, 2015

Test and assignments were graded and given back. Today we began looking at Temperature and Kinetic Energy.

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

Science test was graded and given back. Note there are two outcomes assessed. The first outcome was a much smaller percentage of the test than the second outcome, so the second outcome is a more realistic indicator on how well you did on the test.

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

Science test today!

Unit 2 : Heat

Monday, December 12th, 2015

Today I gave a class to review/study/complete assignments.We went over the study guide and what students were expected to know for tomorrows quiz. See Review guide on from Thursdays class for test outline. If students are missing notes, see Notes from Fridays class.

*Temperature measuring instrument assignment is now Late! You've have 2 1/2 classes to work on it. Get it in ASAP!

*Quiz tomorrow

Friday, December 11th, 2015

Worked on the assignments. Due Monday. Assignment guidlines are posted from yesterdays class. Here are the notes for the Unit test on Tuesday.

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Worked on assignment due Monday. Test On Tuesday. Here is the review guide.

Wednesday, December 8th, 2015

Today we completed our 1st booklet of notes. Then we were working on questions on page 81 # 1,2, and 3. Finish for homework. Click here for the questions and answers.

Monday, December 7th, 2015

We continued filling in our 1st note booklet. See the following slide show here if you are missing any notes in your booklet. The link the the booklet is listed below, under Thursday, November 26th.

Friday, December 4th, 2015

Lab write ups PASTDUE. Get them into Mrs. B as soon as possible. We began looking at various instruments used for measuring temperature this week. We have been copy notes into our "1st note booklet". Here are the notes. We will continue work on the instruments next week. Remember, we will have a test before the break!

We also completed

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

We had a science demonstration titled Heating and Cooling Demo. We will continue work on it next class. Here is the questions and layout.

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

We completed our "Design Challenge" Part 1 today. Page 122- Choose one of the three options, talk about the goal temperature for our design, and some basic introductory design elements of your object. Remember, this design will be ongoing through the entire unit. See Mrs. Benteau if you missed class or have any questions.

First booklet of notes were handed out too. See Mrs. Benteau if you need a copy, or see below for the pdf!

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

This week we clued up some safety symbols review with an assignment and a quiz and started a new Unit on Heat!

We started with a Identifying Heat Activity. The answers to this activity can be found here.

Here are SMART notes from the first class of the unit.

Students will be given our three booklets to record their notes for this unit. Here is the first booklet. The next two will come later in the unit.
