COVID-19 Update:

Hello, below you will find the plan on how I will be teaching science these next few weeks. All assignments will be posted by Monday morning at 9:00 AM and they will be due by Friday at 3:00 PM. I plan on utilizing Study Island during this time. Study Island has lessons and flashcards for each topic to help students learn/review the content. Students should plan on having multiple Study Island assignments each week. I will also be assigning BrainPop activities to help teach the content. Login information for BrainPop will be sent out on dojo and email. 

I will be sending out a Dojo each week going over the assignments and any other expectations for that week. This is a reminder that 70% is required for a Study Island assignment before it is considered complete. 
The calendar on my website will also be a place you can find all assignment due dates posted. 

Week 1 (03/23-03/27):

  • Complete MAP Packet Session #1 (pages 1-22)
  • Study Island: The Water Cycle (15 questions)
  • Watch the BrainPop over "The Water Cycle".

Week 2 (03/30-04/03): 

  • Study Island: Earth-Sun-Moon System. 15 questions - review the lesson and flashcards before beginning the quiz.
  • Study Island: The Solar System & Universe. 15 questions - review the lesson and flashcards before beginning the quiz.
  • Complete MAP Packet Session #2 (Pg.25-45). Answers will be posted on my website at 3:00 pm Friday. Since the packet is written work it is strictly practice and no grade will be given. Here is the link if you misplaced your packet: https://dese.mo.gov/sites/default/files/asmt-gl-practice-form-sci-gr8.pdf.

Week 3 (04/06-04/10):

  • Study Island: The Rock Cycle. 15 questions - review the lesson and flashcards before beginning the quiz.
  • Study Island: Changes in Earth’s Surface. 15 questions - review the lesson and flashcards before beginning the quiz. 

Ms. Amerison still plans on sending “U” list and “1’s” to parents on Monday’s. You can contact me over email: dorrellj@universityacademy.org or Dojo. Please don't hesitate to reach out during this time, I will make sure I respond within 24 hours.

Thanks,
