Week 3 & 4 of Semester 2

We are moving right along this semester! This week Biology started learning about heredity and will learn about complex patterns of inheritance next week. Physics is finishing up our unit on Electricity and taking a test on this unit. They will start learning about waves next week. Next week is FFA week and we have lots of activities going on Thursday the 21 we will have an ag day for all grades K-12. Remember next week is a holiday so no school on Monday....

Week 5

Biology spent last week reviewing atoms and some basic chemistry.  With that refresher course we are starting Macromolicules.  We have 2 labs we will be doing this week to help them understand both what they are and how they are put together.  Macromolicules are the foundation for everything we will learn for the rest of the year.   This is the final concept for this unit, we will have our test on our first unit test next week.  Students should be studying at home and working on their...
