Wed., June 1
We got our Solar Energy lab notebooks.  We saw some things in the classroom about shadows.  We completed Activity 1 Part 1A in our lab notebooks in regard to shadows.

NOTE- BUTTERFLY RELEASE WILL BE ON MON., JUNE 13TH - LAST PERIOD

HW - sheets are due signed TOMORROW!!

Thurs., June 2
The morning classes discussed and read information about shadows and we began talking about why it's warmer in summer and colder in winter.  We also talked about the rotation and revolution of the earth.  The afternoon classes went outside and did tracking of shadows.  We will compare the shadows of all six classes.  Today I collected the sheets signed.

HW - test on section 13 next Wed.  There is a game on the internet to practic for this.

Fri., June 3
The first three classes still didn't go to do the solar tracker because of lack of sun.  All classes did look at the tracking of the last three classes of the day and discussed why the shadows appeared as they did.  We continued with notes on shadows and on "Things related to the sun".

I went over what types of questions will be on the tesy - 13 multiple choice (with more than one answer possible), 2 circle the correct picture, 8 short answer, 2 math.  I will go over more specifics on Monday.

We finally got to do the shadow tracker and we did that on one sheet with all classes so we could better compare them.  I handed out a sheet of information on the 8 questions that will be on the test.  We did those and we went over the answers.

Mon., June 13
We made origami butterflies, thanks to Mrs. Wang, who taught this to all classes.  We did another origami of the monkey climbing the mountain.  At the end of the day we had our butterfly release and our parties to go along with this.  Everything went very well, except that we had one butterfly still in its crysalis.  Our tadpole is getting big but is not growing legs yet.

HW - tomorrow is the last day to get your extra credit report in for the marking period.
