7th Grade Science is working on completing their science fair project. The experiments have been completed and we are rounding up our work on our projects. This includes putting the finishing touches on our research papers, creating our display boards, and practicing our speeches for the Science Fair which will be held on January 16th after school in MPH.
7th grade Social Studies has just finished their unit on how the United States tried and failed to come up with a form of self government with the Articles of Confederation. The United States met and decided that a new form of government, the Constitution, was needed. We will now take a look at the specifics of the United States Constitution.
8th Grade Social Studies has just finished a unit on Westward Expansion. We looked at the interactions of the United States with Native American tribes as our country grew larger. We will continue to look at the industrial developments of the United States after the Civil War and Reconstruction.
All laboratory safety rules must be followed. These are reviewed and students sign a contract. Some labs require long hair to be pulled back.
Girls with long hair are expected to have a hair accessory available for this purpose. Proper handling of lab materials is a must
A 6-inch (15 centimeter) ruler is required. These are used often for measuring and for creating data tables and graphs.
Science Fair is part of the 7th Grade curriculum. A Student Manual is available for download on the Joliet Diocese Science Teachers Association website.
Students are guided in each part of this long-term project. The process begins early in Fall and culminates with our school Science Fair in mid-January.
