September 11, 2018: Today, the students completed the Atomic Structure Review rotations. They turned this worksheet in. The students were also able to start their atom 'word'. They will have time to work on this assignment tomorrow. They have no homework tonight.
September 12, 2018: Today, the students worked on their Bohr Atom 'Word' assignment. If the students did not finish in class they will get about 10 minutes tomorrow to finish. Their homework tonight is 'Intro to Atoms' homework worksheet.
September 13, 2018: Today, the students completed their atom 'words' and watched a Bill Nye Video about atoms. They wrote a haiku based on information from the video. They turned this haiku in for a grade. Their homework tonight is 'Intro to Atoms Quiz Review' homework worksheet. Their Atom Quiz is scheduled for Tuesday, September 18th.
September 14, 2018: Today, the students were given directions on how to complete the 'Bohr Person Project' This project is due on Monday, September 24th. The students received a worksheet that details the project. The students wrote down properties of an element and their assignment is to use these properties as inspiration in constructing their bohr person. 8A did not receive an index card; they will get it Monday. 8R did receive an index card. 8th grade students also put together a 'mystery' periodic table using numbers, shapes, and colors. I collected their homework and their drill worksheet today. An Atom Quiz is scheduled for Tuesday, 9/18. They will get a practice quiz on Monday.
