I apologize for this being a day late. My son was in an accident and I spent most of the afternoon, evening, and night with him in the ER. He is okay, save for a broken arm and lots of bruises.
In class on Tuesday we completed the vocabulary notes on the "There's a Method to the Madness" worksheet we started on Monday. Students were told to pace themselves and that this activity should take no more than 10 minutes.
Students were then directed to create the Scientific Method Flow-Chart as their Creative Output for the Scientific Method Reading, and PowerPoint Presentation from yesterday, directly in on page 12 of the ISN. Again, students were told that this activity should take them no more than 10 minutes. I drew a copy of the Flow-Chart on the board and students had color copies placed on their desk for reference.
The "There's a Method..." Reading/Vocabulary Worksheet, the Scientific Method Flow Chart, and the Cornell Notes on Ch. 1, Sec. 4 of the Textbook make-up 99% of the material that the students will be quizzed on tomorrow and are the "Open Notes" that they should study and bring with them to the Quiz.
This allowed students 25 minutes of Class Time to work toward making sure their Cornell Notes (Homework assignment from 10/05/17) for the Quiz tomorrow were complete as well as time to study.
Students were also allowed to use the Chromebooks to sign-up for our Class on Google Classroom. They were shown how to log-in and access Google Classroom assignments.
