Students wrote down a step by step (click by click) list of how to open, type and submit a document in Google Classroom. We did this by logging in as a student on the smartboard and then proceeded with the assignment. Every time we made a click we wrote it down. If your student has lost it, please click on MY CALENDAR to the left, look at 08/30/17 date and you will be able to click on a copy of what we wrote down. Thank you.
How to do Academic Vocabulary
Vocabulary is done in two parts. 1. Define in your own words. 2. Draw or attach a picture that represents the term.
Students may or may not be able to find their vocabulary definitions in the their book. If they can not locate it their book then dictionary.com is ok just make sure that they write the "science" definition...i.e. LIMITING FACTOR..the 1st definition has to do with limiting steps in a process or the slowest..the 2nd definition is the one we are looking for since we are studying interedepence of living organisms and it states..."an environmental factor that tends to limit population size"
Vocabulary Quizzes are every THURSDAY.
