8th Grade- January 14-18
Monday- Friday- Students will be working on microscope packets all week. We will be completing another packet that requires students to work on vocabulary, know the parts of the scope, make microscope drawings, and answer discussion questions from class.
Friday- Microscope quiz. Students must pass with an "A" (they can miss 1). Correctly identify all microscope parts. Reassessment for the microscope quiz will take place during microscope work time in class next week. Basically students do not get to continue on microscope work until they can correctly identify all the parts and tell how to safely use the scopes.
