4th QUARTER! Almost big bad 8th graders, look out! I hope you all had a nice spring break self isolating with your families. Make sure you are checking your student email daily. You should also be checking Teams, Clever, and our team Teacher Pages. Assignments will be assigned on Monday by noon and will be due by Sunday at 8:00 pm for my Life Science class. I will be updating my gradebook today, so be sure to check PowerSchool to see what your grade in Life Science is for the 3rd quarter as well as what you might be missing for the fourth quarter. Here is the plan for the week of April 6th-10th.

THESE ARE DUE BY SUNDAY AT 8:00 PM
Friday! Friday! Friday!
Happy Friday everyone. Remember your Science News For Students article questions are due today by midnight. So far I have about 80/127 submitted, not all are turned in on teams. Remember that you need to return to teams after “submitting” your form so you can “turn in” your assignment on teams. I know this is a hassle but TEAMS and CLEVER are our main platforms for assignments.
Last assignment before spring break. I need to know if you can get on to my CLEVER teacher page (Mr.Hunt – 7th Grade Life Science). This is the platform that you should get into first. From Clever you can open Teams and assignments, and Amplify if we decide to use it. I will try to be posting assignments on Clever and on TEAMS. So, send me a chat or an email to let me know if you can get onto my Clever page. If not I can get you a backup code.
SPRING BREAK = NO HOMEWORK DUHHHH 🙂
When we return from spring break we will start on ECOLOGY! I will send out a Monday email with the weekly schedule for science. There will be 1-2 assignments per week. You are being graded so make sure to take your time and formulate well thought out answers.
I hope you guys have a good time with your families during spring break! Try to be active during your time off. Of course there is always room for a couple relax days with hours of video games or Netflix but do your best to help around the house and get outside to move.
Good morning crew!
Your COVID-19 Assignment was due on Tuesday the 23rd. Please get this assignment done if you have not already. Here are my results so far:

I still have many of you that have not TURNED IN your assignment but I DO have your Microsoft Form submitted. If you turned in your assignment you should receive a return from me with feedback and a score. I will be messaging and emailing those of you that have not turned in your assignment.
Assignment #2 – Science News For Students
This assignment is DUE TOMORROW by 11:59 PM
There will be NO work over spring break. The week after we will begin some Ecology – relations of organisms to one another and to their physical surroundings. Hopefully we can get back to our classroom after that week.
That is all I have for now. Remember to email or chat with me if you have any questions. If you are struggling to get onto teams or clever ask me, ask a friend. We are all in this together so we need to help each other out and communicate.
Have a good day!
Nice work Life Science students! You are doing a great job with your remote learning so far. Keep up the good work. Try to get a routine down with you school day. Checking emails, checking TEAMS, and working on your assignments.
So far in science class you have:
1)posted your favorite snack to our TEAMS page
2) Completed the COVID-19 RESEARCH TASK assignment on microsoft forms and submitted it
3) Returned to TEAMS to “turn in” your covid assignment (many of you have still not done this part, most of you have)
4) Posted one of your questions from the covid article to our teams page and replied to at least 3 other student questions.
5) Began working on the Science News For Students assignment. This assignment is due on Friday 3/26/20.
Do not be hesitant to send me an email or a chat in TEAMS with your questions. We are all in this together. Keep working hard and staying healthy physically and mentally.
Assignment #1 – COVID-19 RESEARCH TASK – Due Today by 11:59 pm
Make sure after you submit your Microsoft Forms answer sheet you “turn in” the assignment in teams. Again, there will be no document attached in teams when you turn in. I will be transferring these grades into the powerschool gradebook.
Assignment #2 – SCIENCE NEWS FOR STUDENTS – Due Friday by 11:59 pm
Here is the link too: (highlight all, right click, go to https://…)
When you open the forms page make sure it says your name above article information. There is a link at the top that will open sciencenewsforstudents.org. Here is where you will search for an article that interests you.
You are going to choose one article that interests you. Read the article and fill in the Microsoft Forms answer sheet. After you submit the form, return to teams and “turn in” the assignment.
Email or Chat with me in TEAMS if you need help.
