Hello, below you will find the plan on how I will be teaching science these next few weeks. All assignments will be posted by Monday morning at 9:00 AM and they will be due by Friday at 3:00 PM. I plan on utilizing Study Island during this time. Study Island has lessons and flashcards for each topic to help students learn/review the content. Students should plan on having multiple Study Island assignments each week. I will also be assigning BrainPop videos to help teach the content. 

I will be sending out a Dojo each week going over the assignments and any other expectations for that week. This is a reminder that 70% is required for a Study Island assignment before it is considered complete. 

Week 1 (03/23-03/27):
-Complete MAP Packet Session #1 (Pg.1-22). Answers will be posted on my website at 3:00pm Friday. Since the packet is written work it is strictly practice and no grade will be given.Here is the link if your student misplaced their packet:https://dese.mo.gov/sites/default/files/asmt-gl-apractice-form-sci-gr8.pdf.
