New Science Rotations
This year is set up a little differently, but for most students the new science rotation has recently started. Space, Body Works, and Genetics are being offered to the majority of students with Biology students still monitoring and reporting on the Fox River. There may be some small changes as your students start their new rotations, but the big pieces will stay the same. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to any of the science teachers.
Biology is a project-based learning experience where students spend time working in their community and interacting with other scientists. We recently completed the first half of our Ecology Unit working on the Fox River Monitoring Project. The class will be sharing out their results at the upcoming STEM Gallery Walk on November 11th.
We are sure you've heard some news from students about the Science Fair, and we are really excited to be running it, and running it a little different this year. All of the science classes (outside of Biology) will be working through the science fair process this year, but instead of working on it exclusively at home, students will be given class time (the entire class) to truly focus on their project.
For more information about the Science Fair, check out our website (embedded below and linked out HERE ). On this website you will find videos explaining the process that students watched during class, a calendar with information about our daily steps and due dates, as well as information about the displays that students will be creating this year. More information will be coming as we reach new checkpoints throughout the process.
