Science
Rocks & Minerals
Earth's Energy
Plate Tectonics
Weathering, Erosion and Soil Formation
Earth's Water Systems
Earth's Climate

Listed below are the procedures and daily routines in the classroom. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to a successful year with all of you.

Materials Needed:
Pencils
Notebook
Folder
Color Pencils
Sticky Notes
Ear Buds

Warm-Ups:

Each day student will complete a "warm-up" to start the class. This is usually a question, map or topic that gets the students thinking about our concept for the day. They will complete the warm-up in their notebook, on their computer or a handout.  

Folders/Notebooks:

Students will be required to keep a notebook and folder. This will include any worksheets, notes, or other assignments that we complete for each chapter/unit. At various times throughout the semester, I will grade the notebooks and folders for different components.

Homework:
When homework is assigned, it will be checked on the day it is due.  If a homework assignment is missing on the day it is due, students will have two days to turn it in for 50% of the score.  After two days, if the homework is still missing, the grade will be a zero.

Assessments:
A variety of assessments will be incorporated throughout the school year.. It is expected that each student will complete his/her own work. If help is needed, please encourage your student to ask questions!
