DT's Science Page of Shock and Awe
Welcome to the first semester of science.
Click on the above links to access information specific to your class. 8th grade students study Earth Science and 7th grade students investigate Life Science.
During the second semester 7th grade students will be studying the diversity of life and human body systems. The 8th grade students will be concluding the natural catastrophes caused by weather and geologic processes connected primarily to plate tectonics. The bulk of the semester we will be exploring astromy, a favorite.
Use the 8th and 7th grade site to get handouts for the current goal, check due dates, to go to the online textbook and print out current handouts check out the other clickable headings.
I have also listed cool websites relevant to our goals. Enjoy!
As we start 2013 I would like to thank Lucas Carmalt for his excellent job as our as our student teacher in the life sciences. I would also lke to thank Amanda Hund as our doctoral candidate in the life sciences from CU Boulder. She is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and will be connect us to the latest in discoveries at the university and beyond. She will be with Ms. Greene this spring and we welcome Jeff McClannahan as our helper for semester two. We are excited to hear about his recent field work in Australian Eucalyptus forests and the effects of clear cutting on insect biodiversity. As well, we continue to enjoy his help
