We are starting to get more in depth as it relates to density. Students should be able to explain what density is and how to calculate density. We are also talking about igneous rocks. They will have a quiz on igneous rocks on Friday. Progress reports are going out on Monday, 8/22/16, so be sure to review them with your children. Be sure to check out the unit on Minerals and Rocks to help you study!
This week we talked about minerals, their characteristics and their properties (how to identify a mineral). Please make sure you use this website as a way to study the material. There will be a quiz on Tuesday 8/16/16 covering minerals. Next week we will start on rocks and the rock cycle.
