Hello 8th grade students and parents!

I am very excited to be starting the 2011-2012 school year! Welcome to the BCCS 8th grade life science blog. This is my class blog to help students and families answer questions whenever needed. Examples of materials that I will try to put up on the blog on a regular basis: in class notes, review packets, homework assignments, and important dates in the 8th grade.

Today in class:
- Today we completed a Density of Pennies lab. The graph from the data collected in classs as well as the questions associated with the lab are due tomorrow.

Thursday and Friday:
- We will be completing a 2 part test on the Scientific Method on Thursday and Friday of this week. Below are some good websites to help students with the scientific method and graphing if they are having any trouble with their homework or studying for the test.
