Monts de Oca, Faith

8th Grade Science   Mrs. Monts de Oca  

Week of October 22nd:

Monday:  Welcome back from fall break!  We will refresh our memories on how to apply the relative age dating rules to determine the relative age of geologic events.

Tuesday:  Students will participate in a hands-on activity to learn the definition and importance of index fossils.

Wednesday: Students will review the relative age dating rules.

Thursday: Early Release day.  Students will quiz over relative age dating.

Friday:  Students will discuss schema for Absolute age dating and participate in a slightly odd ‘experience’ that will have meaning later on.

** Any student not happy with their grade has been encouraged to schedule a brief meeting with me to discuss our plan for success.  Many students are not used to studying or are studying in an ineffective way and a few small changes can make a big difference!  


  Student Expectations:
1. Come to school!  If you miss class, YOU are responsible for getting your work, completing it and turning it in on time.
2. Have your materials ready.  Something to write with, paper, and your organized binder.
3. Be ready to work.  There is a time and place for goofiness, and it isn't always science class :)
4. Communicate with me.  I can't help you if I don't know you need help!
5. Outside work.  For most students, it is NECESSARY to study outside of class.  5-15 mnutes of review at home a day can boost your knowledge and scores dramatically.
*Email is the best way to contact me if you have any questions or concerns!  You can find my email address under the "Contact Details" to the right.
