Wednesday, 11/23/16- B Day- Early Dismissal- Happy Thanksgiving

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Ask the person who sits next to you if he or she will eat turkey tomorrow. If not, what will be eaten instead? Also find out if he or she prefers apple pie or pumpkin pie or no pie at all. Get out your notebook and open it to the first page of your unit on Matter (p.25).
  2. Organize your notebook! In your cooperative table group, check out your unit on Matter (pages 25-33 in your science notebook). Is your Table of Contents up to date? Do all pages have headings? Is your title page (p.25) colored? Does your Driving Questions Summary Table (pp.26-27) have two entries on it? Are pages 28-33 complete with flip pages attached neatly? Help each other out by switching notebooks and giving each other constructive feedback!
