This week we are completing a review of Cells and Cell Processes. This topic was studied in depth in 7th grade. There will be a test on Tuesday, March 21. As always, students will be able to use their Science Words of the Day and 1/2 sheet of notes on the test. Science Words of the Day (10 words) will be turned in with the test.
On Wednesday, March 22 we will begin our unit on Microbiology and Disease. In conjunction with this unit, we are reading Fever 1793 which is a fictional account of the yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia in 1793.
During this unit, a project on disease will be assigned. More details will follow on this assignment.
