As we are coming back from winter break, we will be starting our new unit in science on simple machines. One hands on way we incorporate learning about simple machines every year is by having students create a simple or compound machine. This project is to be completed at home and turned in Wednesday, Jan. 24th.
Attached are the project rubric and a study guide on simple machines.
Also, here is a link to some project ideas. Your machine can be as simple or complex as you’d like!

Report cards for the 2nd Nine Weeks go home on Friday. I also included the information on how to log onto Dreambox Math in case you need it again. As always, feel free to contact me through phone, email or Remind if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!

This week students have a little but of extra fun homework. Each night they will be asked to look at the moon and record what it looks like as we learn about moon phases. An extra sheet is attached is case they misplace it.
Students were told about this on Friday (though I’m sure many forgot), therefore 5 days will be required for homework. If they do all 7 days they will get extra credit!
This will be due this Friday, November 18th for a science grade. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
