Homework: Study for at least 30 minutes and have your parent initial your agenda.

Study session: We will attempt to host a study session via Skype tonight from 5-7 pm. My skype name is mrswilsonsci. You can download Skype and set up a free account at www.Skype.com.

  1. Passed back weathering, erosion, deposition and soil test and discussed. Remember, there is no time to retake this test. If you did not do well on this test, you need to study for your interim. I will look at how you did on each of the strands for weathering, erosion, deposition, and soil and adjust your test score if you show that you understand the material.
  2. Discussed the interim exam. It is cumulative over first and second nine weeks. That means it will cover rocks, geologic time, ecology, earth’s interior, continental drift, plate tectonics, and weathering, erosion, deposition, and soil. Make sure you spend time studying each night. First and second period exams are on Thursday, and sixth and seventh period exams are on Friday.
  3. Created a “mind map” for geologic time. See below for the one we created in 7th period. This is a great way to both help you study and also to help you remember what you know as you are taking a test.

Homework: Create a mind map for rocks. Work on it for 5 minutes without using your notes, than you can take out your notes and use them to help you complete your mind map and make connections. I will check this in class tomorrow, and we will share.
