Science, Social Studies, and Religion - Mrs. Heather Ricardi
**Please encourage your children to make sure they hand in assignments when they are due. If they are absent, please make sure that they look to see what they have missed! Science and Social Studies are rotating subjects and are not taught each week!
Fun Fact: I was on the women's rowing team during college at UConn.
This week we will start our first Science rotation. We are going to be starting our first Unit in looking at how Earth's surface changes over time. We will specifically be looking at the 4 layers of the Earth and what they are. We will also begin to talk about plate tectonics. This will start to show students how Earth's crust is always moving. We will look at the shapes of continents, and eventually fault and fold lines. The quiz that students have on Friday will be short and focus on just what we discuss this week. They will need to use their textbooks and notebooks to help them review for the quiz.
The students should use the information from their notebooks and textbook pages 28, 214, and 215 to help them study. My copy of the notes is here, but it should be in their 3 subject notebook.
There is no Social Studies this week. We will start again next week with Social Studies!
This week we are finishing Chapter 1. We will be learning about the different ways that God reveals himself to us. On Friday, students got a review sheet to look at over the weekend in order to prepare for a quiz on Tuesday. We will go over it again on Monday. If they do not have the review sheet, using the link below can get you to where it is online in addition to an interactive chapter review game. Starting Wednesday, we are going to be starting our first lessons in the Growing with God curriculum material. We will focus on looking at our unique gifts and how we use them, personal boundaries, and identifying the characteristics of a good friend. We may not get through everything this week which would push it into next week!
