Unit quiz on the skeletal system and muscles CHANGED TO Thursday, 2/18. Please use your study guide, class notes and your text book to help you prepare for this assessment.  Also, there is a vocabulary link for this unit in my 7 East Science Vocabulary Google classroom.  The code is  t06et2u.  Please join if you haven't already done so.

Students are asked to bring in a magazine advertisement for a "fad diet." A fad diet is any nutritional program, exercise plan or seemingly improbably quick fix scheme which promises a dramatic change to your physical appearance without doing things like giving up unhealthy eating or exercising. B day students need to bring in their ad on Friday, February 5th while A day students should be prepared to share their ads on Monday, February 8th.

Please take a look at your student's SSPs.  You can find the first steps to logging in here:    (http://www.jwms.reg4.k12.ct.us/parent_resources/student_success_plans) Check on what they had to say about their goals.  You can then talk to them about whether they were successful or not.  You might even be able to discuss what kind of things they may do to become successful if they weren't. 8th grade classes have been working with 3 dimensional CAD.  We worked together to design a flying disk extruding it from a 2 dimensional series of lines.  We then drew a Yo-Yo while learning about making levels, modifying a sphere, making solid cutouts,  and finally learning how to mirror an image that we made.  Over the next few days students will design their own Yo-Yo from a line like their flying disk. They will next learn how to take a CAD drawing and change it to machine language so that it can be 3-D printed.  I will then Email what they have done to the High School.  Valley will use their 3-D printers to make a copy of each student's Yo-Yo. 7th grade is learning how to create 2 dimensional CAD drawings.  We are starting off by working together creating a drawing called Landscape.  As we work on the drawing we are going over vocabulary that the students need.  This vocabulary helps the students understand what is going on within the computer screen.  The vocabulary could also be used in their language arts and math classes.
