Science: Grades 6-8, Week of 1/14/18

The 8th grade is nearing the end of our long Human Anatomy/Physiology unit. This week we will be examining how our immune system works and the way that infectious diseases get transmitted into us.

The 7th grade will be using a bit of their scientific knowledge, about simple machines, to engineer a “Rube Goldberg” type of invention. A mixture of applying what they’ve learned with a bit of their own creativity is the key to succeed.

The 6th grade will be finishing up their study of the solar system this week, as we examine the nature of comets, and will then be preparing for an upcoming exam.
