I hope you’re all doing well and enjoyed your weekend. Not a lot of the school year left and this is one for the history books.
Today’s math isn’t difficult, but it’s time consuming and you’ll need to pay attention to where you’re placing your points, and creating lines. Read carefully to make sure you’re paying attention to what’s being asked. If you don’t have grid paper at home and can’t print out the grids that I’ve shared, I’ve also created grids you can use on GeoGebra.
In science, we’re going to start looking at how heat is transferred. A key idea to keep in mind is that heat is transferred – not cold. For example if you drop ice cubes into a cup of lemonade, the heat from the lemonade is transferred to the ice cubes. The cold is not transferred to the lemonade. The effect is the temperature of the lemonade drops as it loses heat energy to the ice cubes and the ice cube’s temperature increases (leading to melting) as it gains heat energy from the lemonade. There is an interactive experiment that you can complete using the Explore Learning Gizmos to investigate conduction and convection. We’ll use some of our Office Hours time today and tomorrow to explore that Gizmo.
In language, I’d still like you to explore some of the resources that I shared on Friday. I’ve posted a couple more grammar activities as well. I hope you all have a great day!
Office hours today are at 10:00! See you then 🙂
