Today students had a substitute teacher because I was at an NGSS Professional Developement for the District Office.
Students were given the SEP #6 packet as well as the answer key to help them complete the packet. The packet was due by the end of the period to ensure that students were on task for the substitute teacher.
TUESDAY 11/27/18 - RENEWABLE VS NON-RENEWABLE NATURAL RESOURCES (ISN Check 05 ASSIGNED)
Today students watched a 4 minute BrainPop! video on Natural Resources to help them form a working definition of Natural Resources, as well as Renewable and Non-Renewable Resources. After the video, we worked together as a whole group to complete our Resources Table on the back of our KWL. We discussed Energy Resources, Lan Resources, and Air and Water Resources and documented our choices on the table. After this, we circled our renewable resources in blue and our non-renewable resources in red. During this discussion, I projected the worksheet as I documented our choices to help students complete their own work.
After this, students had 15+ minutes to begin working on their notes for pages 48 and 49 in their ISN.
ISN Check 05 was also assgined and is due on Wednesday, 12/05/18.

Today I asked students to reflected on their Trimester 1 experience (strengths and weaknesses) in Science. They were required to support their claims with evidence from their ISNs as well as make a plan for growth during Trimester 2.
Today students were given the entire period to work on their creative outputs for CCC #4 (Systems and Systems Models) and CCC #3 (Scale, Proportion, and Quantity).
What has not been completed in class MUST be finished for homework.
