RUTH DOYLE MIDDLE SCHOOL
Claim. Evidence. Reasoning
This week will finish UNIT 1 with a quiz on Wednesday, October 12 and move into UNIT 2 "Cells & Photosynthesis". However, before we dive into cells we must first evaluate the students understanding of simple machines and energy.
We will have a quiz on simple machines and energy this WEDNESDAY, October 12 , and it will be worth 35 points! There will be a few multiple choice questions, some short answer questions, and lots and lots of picture and diagrams of simple machines and Potential and Kinetic Energy!
The kids already have a study guide and should be preparing by looking over old assignments, reviewing their lab journal, and browsing through Google Classroom AKA Our "digital textbook" for resources to help them study.
