    Review for Final Exam

     

    Though We will be using books this year, I have left the link to the notes live in case it is helpful.

  • We will be using a set of four workbooks in Life Science. The content is arranged in a unit/module/lesson format.

    These books are designed with experiential learning in mind. Students will be exploring scientific phenomenon as they proceed through the curriculum this year. 

    I will be assigning reading and note taking in the "Explain the phenomenon" pages for homework which will allow more time in class for lab activities, investigation and exploration of the phenomenon.

    There will be three projects spaced throughout the year as well as tests and end of lesson quizzes.

    I will update the Life Science assignment page with test dates and project due dates.

    I'm looking forward to an exciting year!
