We have completed rocks and the rock cycle. I think the students really enjoyed the sticky geology sandwiches. Their sedimentary rocks were definitely cemented and compacted.
Test Monday - We will have a test over sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks, and the rock cycle. Friday we spent all day reviewing. Students have a reading for the rocks and a diagram of the rock cycle to study. If they read over these, they should be fine. I am considering extra credit for the test if students bring in the review material on Monday. Please ask your students to bring in the readings.
End of the year test - The class final exam or Student Learning Objective (SLO) Test will be on Thursday May 10th. Students will receive a study guide on Monday. We will complete it in class and they will be able to take it home to study. This test will count as their final summative assessment for the year.
Homeroom class - Field day will be on May 14th. The students have decided that they want class shirts and they voted on tie dye. We will be dying them on Friday the 11th so they will be ready the 14th. Please send your student in with a white tee shirt to dye and a Kroger type plastic bag to bring the shirt home in. I will also need some large rubber bands. If you are willing and able to donate those, I would appreciate it. I will supply the dye and other materials. This will be fun...and messy!
