Good morning and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

If you’re feeling anxious (I certainly am not myself lately), this may help:

Virtual escape into nature

Here is what I need you to work on today:

6th grade:

  1. Watch this video about yesterday’s assignment:


2. Read p. 325-332 in this book (land biomes) and answer the questions at the very end (p. 332). These are the PDF pages, not the book pages. Using the link I sent to your email might be easier than using this embedded PDF reader.

6th biology textbook (Holt)

7th grade: 

  1. Watch this video about finches on the Galapagos Islands:

BIo-Interactive Film on Adaptive Radiation

2. Complete this form:

Evidence for evolution

Take this test:

Radical expressions test


Please watch this video and do the easy experiment described here. The lab report for this experiment is due tomorrow.

Diffusion experiment

Good morning students!

Welcome to the first day of virtal school.  For me, it’s going to be a long 6 weeks or so; it’s only been four days, and I miss you already.

I will post assignments and content on this page every day. You may have assignments/projects that will take you a few days to complete. You will need to submit things to me either via email, or by submitting an online form; this is new to many of you, and certainly to me, so we’ll see how this goes.

Here’s what you need to do in Algebra I and science today:

6th Grade: 

Please respond to these questions and submit to me by 10:00 AM, Tuesday, March 17:

Biomes questionnaire

7th Grade: 

Please watch this video about the evidence for evolution and take notes. There will be a checkpoint quiz on Friday.

Evidence for evolution

(I apologize for the lag time in the first part of the slide show. If you need to see the notes at your leisure, please see the notes page in the sidebar to your left.)



8th Grade: 

Algebra I: You have a test on radical expressions tomorrow. Please review p. 655-657, as needed.  If you left your Algebra book at school, please contact me.

Science: Please complete the cell packet I gave to you on Thursday. If you need a new copy, again, please let me know. Please take a picture of the sheet and email it to me, or scan it if you prefer.
