We started a new science unit, the FOSS Mixtures and Solutions Unit. We will be studying basic concepts in chemistry, finding out how materials interact with each other. We will learn what happens when simple materials, like gravel, salt, and water, are put together. Students will also learn techniques for separating the resulting mixtures and solutions. As our studies continue, we will investigate combinations of materials, like baking soda and calcium chloride (the salt used to melt ice on roads), that react when mixed, producing new products, like chalk, carbon-dioxide gas, and table salt. Lastly, we will learn about the Periodic Table of Elements, how to write chemical equations and how to write the chemical equations when chemicals react. Note: Google Slides for all science investigations will be posted to my website when we complete the investigation and can be used to review the concepts. www.tinyurl.com/missho25
Students will begin unit 4, Life in the Colonies, in January. Students will learn about what influenced where Europeans settled in North America, who founded the colonies and why, how religion affected the settling of the colonies, and how religion affected the founding of the colonies. Toward the end of the unit, we will learn what government systems developed in the colonies and what role slavery had in the colonies. The unit 4 test will be on February 8th.
