Quarterly Extra Credit
2nd Quarter Extra Credit: If interested in extra credit for the second grading quarter... Read Chapter 5 in your textbook. This chapter covers the topic of Erosion and Deposition. Some of the content may be review from earlier grades, or are concepts that will be directly or indirectly associated with other chapters/units this year. Under 6th grade science is a file where you will find the extra credit assignments. There will be a Review and Reinforce worksheet as well as a Quiz for each lesson. Each Lesson (review & reinforce and quiz) is worth up to 5 points. You may choose up to 2 of the 5 available lessons. You may only earn up to 10 extra credit points this quarter!
Turn these in no later than Monday, December 17th.
General Information
Science Grades are weighted.
70% is based on quiz and tests

30% = homework/classwork/labs
 
Any online assignments as well as links to Quzlet sets, and helpful videos and websites can all be found on Google Classroom.
 
Students... I strongly recommend visiting our Google Classroom site frequently. There are many helpful videos, links and Quizlets to help you understand lessons, review and prepare for quizzes and tests. At times you will also have to use this site for some assignments. Students can download the App or go to www.Classroom.Google.com and enter their school email and passord to access our class's page.
 
Students... I would highly recommend downloading these apps:  GMail (for your school email account - turn ON notifications!), Quizlet, Kahoot,  and Google Classroom on your smart phones, ipods, tablets etc... especially if you don't have access to a computer at home. These can be very helpful in reviewing materials covered in class and preparing for quizzes and tests!

· S   Students...Please make sure you have earbuds/headphones at school and available to use in class every day.

 
Students and/or Parents:
