7th Grade Science Assignments; May 4-8, 2020

May 3, 2020     Pat Carpenter    

Don’t forget that you have a project to do in science due May 12.  Make a model of one of the body organs or systems we have studied or hopefully will study this nine weeks.  Choose from the heart (page 449), excretory system (page 462), respiratory system (page 470), or the digestive system (page 476).  You can make your model from play dough, clay, or any materials you have on hand.  If you need to, you may draw a picture on a piece of plain white 8.5 X 11 paper instead.  It must be colored and labeled and not be a tracing.  If you do a model, it must also be labeled.  When complete, send me a picture of you with your completed model or picture. This will count as a test.

Complete the 20E Section Review on page 463.  Due Thursday.


Work on your project.  Don’t forget to have all corrections for this week turned in by Friday afternoon.

About Pat Carpenter

My credentials: B.S. in Elementary Education (grades 1-9); Masters in Education; 45 hours of additional graduate work. After 36 years in the classroom, I retired from public schools with Career Ladder III certification and rated as highly qualified to teach middle school science and language arts. I started teaching a TOCS in the fall of 2011. Family: My husband, George, and I exchanged wedding vows in 1972. We have two daughters--Anne and Aimee. Anne works in Nashville for the Health Department and Aimee is a registered nurse at Johnson City Medical Center. My faith: I was raised in church. I accepted Christ as my Savior as a child. The older I get, the more I realize that I can do nothing without Christ, but I can do all He wants me to do in His strength. With every word and deed, I am accountable to Christ. I take the education of each child very seriously. I teach whole heartedly as unto Christ. It is the Lord Christ I serve. Interests: Outside of the classroom I like to hike. I love looking at God's creation as I hike on a trail and just praising Him for His creation. My favorite form of praise is singing. I am active in my church choir and sing occasional solos, which allows me to share a part of my testimony with others.
