(Assignments in RED are for a GRADE!)

During the month of October we will begin the OpenSci Ed Unit on Thermal Energy. This is a program that Lafourche parish was chosen to pilot by the state. This program is about discovery learning, which means the students learn-by-doing. The notes for this unit will be their "Model Tracker." In addition, students will be asked to document their discoveries in their science journals. It is important that you ask your child these questions every day: What are you working on? Why are you working on this? (They should be able to answer these questions in detail). Please be patient, for this is not only a new way of learning for the students, but a new way of teaching for me. If you have any questions, please email me at bstall@mylpsd.com
