PARENTS AND STUDENTS , as we are experiencing very unusual circumstances, I will give you guidance for schooling in my Science course during this time of shelter-at-home for the good of everyone in our community.
 
For the 7th grade Science classes, work through our current Amplify unit (Matter and Energy in Ecosystems) as well as possible.  We will revisit this topic upon our return to the physical classroom, but feel free to turn in digitally on Amplify any work you complete.  As we are right at the beginning of this Unit, there is much learning available.
 
For the 8th grade Science class, we were going to be studying next Light and the Electromagnetic Spectrum in our textbook that is not available to you in this particular situation.  As an alternative learning experience, and to prepare you for this unit once returning to the physical classroom, this is what I ask you to accomplish:
On paper, spell our ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM vertically down the left column of a sheet of paper.  Research as much as you are able to on this subject.  For each letter, choose an appropriate word that applies to this subject and then explain it.  Here is an example that you may use for the first letter (E): "  E is for energy.  Electromagnetic radiation carries energy through empty space from our Sun to our planet."   Notice I wrote the word underlined and then wrote a sentence to indicate what I learned in my research about electromagnetic radiation and the electromagnetic spectrum.  Try your best to include all 22 letters in this subject title!
 
HANG IN THERE!      Mrs. Martinson
