This week, our iPads were issued (in the carts that stay in the classroom while our iPads stay at school for the first month). We spent quite a bit of time going through "iPad Boot Camps" or training camps for the iPad. I was overjoyed to find out how many of you already knew how to navigate the iPad, which made this go very smoothly! We reviewed basic iPad navigation, cybersafety, tips and tricks, and setting up our Showbie assignment turn in system as well as other electronic organizational tasks.
We also finished up our lab "Are You Symmetrical."
Next week we will set our Science spiral notebooks, find out what you know about metrics and start some measuring!
Welcome to 6th Grade Life Science!
This week we started off getting to know each other! We spent some time learing some new procedures that will help our classroom run more smoothly. We also have begun to talk about about the nature of science, and how science works - concepts that will carry over throughout the year!
I enjoyed meeting everyone this week. We will continue working on getting to know each other next week as I weave in procedures with our content.
Next week our iPads will be ready to go. Our textbook is online, so we will be previewing that as well. Please feel frree to use the "Contact Me" tab if you have any questions!
