Science 8
Hello to all my students and other interested parties!

Below you will find links to many of the online Science activities we are working on in class.
If you have any questions, or would just like to drop me a note to say hello you may access my FMS email account using the link at the top of the page.  Email has proven to be the best way of connecting with me as I do check my email daily (on school days!). 

I have created a schedule for the Big 8 Science Review book.  To make the best use of this resource you should complete one review section each week, in 2 - 45 min sessions. 
Review session #1:
In the first work period you should review the headings and section titles to get a sense of the material covered.  Also review all boldfaced vocabulary terms, charts and diagrams.  If there are vocabulary terms you are no familiar with you can make flashcards or employ other strategies that have worked for you.
Review session #2:
The second time you work through each section you should complete the review exercises, using the material in the section to answer the questions.  The more thorough and complete your answers are the more valuable the review!
At the end of the week you should take the unit review test, without using the material in the section.  Take the test all at once.  The answers will be posted on this website for self-correction.
