Today we set up a lab in which we are testing if aquatic plants can photosynthesize in the dark and if plants undergo Cellular Respiration in the light and dark. Students this week have learned about photosynthesis and cellular respiration and are now putting that knowledge to the test!
Students used research to learn about various aspects of Aztec culture, which they then used in advertising style posters highlighting a particular aspect of Aztec life. Not only was the process of gathering information challenging, but working in pairs presented a whole other variety of challenges that needed to be worked out. Come on down to the 6th grade hall next week to see the results!
Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out on Wednesday night for Back To School Night. It was well attended, and a great opportunity to hear from you folks.
If you were unable to attend, please see the information available here on the 6th grade page regarding curriculum, integrated arts, etc. We’ve included the slides from Wednesday night. If you have any questions or concerns that need our attention, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Thanks, and have a great weekend.
