And as always we have our Google Classroom page.  All students are already added in the classroom. Any student who indicated they have access to the internet and a device will be checking Google Classroom for their assignments.  Those who do not, will have assignments attached to this letter. 


As you all should have your science textbook at home you may continue to complete any unfinished textbook pages as a review to help you prepare for next school year.  Your next packet will include a study guide as well as some assessments to see where further review is needed.  

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us by any of the above means if you have any questions or comments.  

Stay safe,

Remember what the CDC tells us: Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands. 

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians:   

Due to the school closures, students will be using their Life Science textbooks to review science content for the next couple of weeks.  In the event schools are closed for an extended period we may incorporate Google classroom lessons as well.  

We understand that some of you have completed more than others in your textbook.  We just ask that you spend about 20-30 minutes per weekday reviewing your science material through book pages or the recommended websites. If school closure is extended we will be providing ideas for some at home hands on science activities for enrichment.  

The following are the pages for each unit to complete:

Unit 1:  In your textbook go to pages 2-63 and look for pages that you have not already completed in class.  Read the textbook pages and find the answers to the questions to fill out in your book.  

Unit 2:  In your textbook go to pages 72-150 and look for pages that you have not already completed in class.  Read the textbook pages and find the answers to the questions to fill out in your book.  

Unit 3:  In your textbook go to pages  158-242 and look for pages that you have not already completed in class.  Read the textbook pages and find the answers to the questions to fill out in your book.  

Unit 4:   In your textbook go to pages  250-315 and look for pages that you have not already completed in class.  Read the textbook pages and find the answers to the questions to fill out in your book.  

Unit 5:   In your textbook go to pages  324-412 and look for pages that you have not already completed in class.  Read the textbook pages and find the answers to the questions to fill out in your book.  

If you have access to the internet you can log onto your Life Science Google classroom and review any material already added for the units.  

BrainPop is also available for review.  Use the following login and go to Science and choose any topic for review.
