Welcome to CGMS Science Ms. Baker The Science Queen
Welcome to 8th grade science! As you come in –Find your seat. –Fill out the seating chart card writing your first & last name LEGIBLY! –Fill out your science survey card. –When finished, stay in your seat and look around the room; using your keen powers of observation to answer the following questions: How many frogs are in the room? What is Ms. Baker’s nickname? What competition is Ms. Baker the sponsor of?
How do we start class? 1.Every day you’ll get your folder, pick up papers by the door and then take your seat. 2.Have out your agenda, pencil, and composition book ready to begin class. 3.Backpacks are on the floor and cell phones are off and safely tucked away inside. 4.Read the slide on the front board. 5.Open agenda, write the daily objective on today’s date. 6.Fill out the Science Starter sheet for today. 7.When finished, see if you can answer today’s trivia question on the white board.
How do we pass in papers? Hand the papers to the person in seat A. The person in seat A will stack the papers and put them in a neat pile on the edge of the desk closest to the aisle. Ms. Baker will come to each table, and collect the papers.
Let’s practice… Please hand in your seating charts. Before handing them in make sure your first and last name is written so the teacher can read it.
What is science? Science discovers the why and how of the way nature works. It also seeks the answers to questions and problems. People then use technology, engineering, and math to solve problems and answer questions using the information science has discovered.
What science will we study this year? Physics – how does energy and matter interact? Chemistry - science of matter, how it reacts, as well as also its composition, structure and properties Heredity How are traits passed down?
