Mrs. Barker: Social Studies 2019-2020

Week of 03/08/2020
This week we will begin our unit on Canada.  The vocabulary foldables are due for "A" day students on Wednesday and "B" day students on Thursday.  This will be the last grade I enter this grading period.  The grading period ends on Thursday.  If your child is missing any assignments for me, they need to be in by Thursday.  I can not take them any later.  I met with each student individually this week to show them their current grade in my classs and let them know if they have any missing assignments.   
Please feel free to contact me at any time.  The best way to get a fast response is through my email: [email protected]

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!
I was very impressed by the Instrument Projects that were presented by students during this 3rd quarter. This is a very creative class that really shined through in these projects! Thank you to the families for supporting your students through this project! We made some big growth :) We have less than weeks left of this grading period, let's keep pushing through with our best efforts!
We have begun our Light Unit. Students have turned in their first 3 vocabulary foldables for light and have received their last vocabulary foldable for light last week. The 4th light vocabulary foldable is due this week! We are doing many in-class experiments and hands-on activities so it is very important to be present during this. It is difficult to make this work up outside of class.
The current standards we are covering are:  
Light and sound are forms of energy that behave in predictable ways.
Students have received their new Light books. I have collected the Sound Books. Students have turned in their 2 previous science books (Space and Technology AND Interactions Among Living Things). We will be using the Light books until the beginning of March. 
Upcoming Dates:

          March 4:  - Light Station Packet due (Light Ch. 5 + 6 Outline paper on front)
                              - Light Vocabulary Foldable #4 is due
