This week I would like you to explore this website and then come back and tell me how you think volcanoes could be a constructive force, that is a force that builds up the earth’s surface!  Be very detailed and try to use big science words in your response :-).  I am sure you could use some of the words we learned about the earth’s structure in your answer.  Be sure to comment on a friends post!

This week you all are going to make a visit to the UMAC.  You will get to taste what the middle school experience will be like!  What are you most looking forward to in middle school?  How do you think middle school will be different than elementary?  What are you most nervous about going into middle school?  What is one question that you can’t wait to find out the answer to during your visit?

Be sure to respond to a friends post!

ERB Week! April 10, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrsdaughertysclass @ 10:43 am

This week I want you all to tell me your opinion on ERB testing.  Do you think ERB’s are necessary?  Why do you think we take ERB’s?  Is it to see how the students are doing or is it to see how the teacher is doing or is it to see how the school is doing?

Give me your opinion, but be sure to state the reasons WHY this is your opinion on ERB’s.
