Homework for the Week of Nov. 19

Oh yes…a bit of homework over Thanksgiving!  I’m sorry…it’s not to be cruel.  We can’t stop the science train for a bit of turkey!  Speaking of turkeys, look out for a Thanksgiving post about this spectacular bird.

1)  Read “Responding to the Environment”

2)  Complete HW#14: The Sixth Sense

Due date:

Block I: next Monday, Nov. 26

Block II: next Tuesday, Nov. 27

Block III: next Monday, Nov. 26

*************************************************************************

AND….it’s time to start working on the Science Fair!  It seems very early, but with holidays, trips, and conferences, starting earlier is actually more sane (at least on my end!)  So, get out your calendars and mark it for MARCH 20, 2013 for the Science Fair.

The first step is to turn in your Science Fair Topics or for 8th graders, you have the option of making an invention.

3)  Complete Science Fair Topics or for 8th graders-Invention Brainstorm

Due date:

Block I: next Wednesday, Nov. 28

Block II: next Friday, Nov. 30

Block III: next Thursday, Nov. 29

Musical Notes:

“The 6th Sense” is a song by the hip hop artist and actor, Common (aka Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr.) from his 2000 album release, Like Water For Chocolate.  The title of the album comes from  the novel of the name title by Laura Esquivel.  The phrase “Like water for chocolate” refers to someone who has reached their boiling point (in many Latin American countries, hot chocolate is made with water instead of milk.)  According to Wiki:

“The song’s lyrics discuss afrocentricity, hip hop culture and various social issues. “The 6th Sense” begins with an introduction in which Common states “the revolution will not be televised, the    revolution is here” referencing the famous Gil-Scott Heron song named “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.”
