Homeroom:

  • Collect DISCIPLINARY NOTIFICATIONs

  • Collect BAYPATH HANDOUTs

  • COLLECT TECH AGREEMENT

 

Grade 8 agenda:

Student Progress Check:

A Journey to the Center of the Earth, notes and diagram may be used as reference.

SLANT:

Discussion:

  • Why does the earth have a magnetic field?

  • Why is Earth's magnetic field important?

 

MAGNETIC PRINCIPLES

  • magnetic fields have different strengths
  • field strength is inversely proportional to distance
  • strength reduces much more quickly than gravitational fields
  • poles, North, South
  • magnetic field lines

MAGNETIC ACTIVITIES

  • MAGNETIC CHAINS - A SIMPLE EXPERIMENT TO GAUGE THE STRENGTH OF A MAGNETIC FIELD.

  • MAKING A SIMPLE MAGNET

 

WIN:

Second Step Lesson 1.

 

    Grade 7 agenda:

    HOMEWORK:

    • Make flash cards and begin studying a five more chemical symbols and elements.  You are responsible for the elements and symbols marked "1" or "2" on the element list.  15 flashcards Due for an in-CLASS check tomorrow.
