Period 3--Current Science--If you didn't do "TuYa" yesterday, do it today; if you need a different Current Science, do "Science You Pick". If you need to take a test, complete a Test Version and Readiness Sheet and have Karen sign it. If you've completed a unit and are ready to hand it in, make sure all parts are attached--take the BW paper for the unit out of your folder, make sure 5 Current Science papers are attached, and make sure the self-reflection pages are completed. Complete a receipt, have Karen sign it and give her your completed unit. Get the next new unit from Barbara.


Period 8--Do a "Science You Pick" for Current Advisory. Hand in your completed Monthly Work #5 to Karen--make sure all pages are attached, including the BW paper from your folder. Drawing was scheduled to happen today; we'll do it in January. Have a great vacation!
