Happy Thanksgiving Break!

Hello, hello, hello!

Today, after a heart-to-heart talk about making changes in our classroom for the better, we were introduced to a few parts of our upcoming unit beginning next Monday. This is my favorite unit of the entire 8th grade curriculum! Drumroll please…. PATHOGENS!

I love this unit because it is so interesting, students can relate to it and there are some pretty cool “WOW” or “WHAAAT?!” factors.

We completed part of the Discovery Education lesson and then began working on our new formed flashcards.

NOTE:

STUDENTS SHOULD

BRING

AT LEAST

10 FLASHCARDS

EACH WEEK

Vocab words December 2 - PathogensI challenged students to see if they can make flashcards better than mine… Based on the cards I was seeing today, looks like they’re going to put mine to shame 🙂 You can see them below (even if you need a little inspiration to get yours started).

Remember… your cards should have the following components (click below to enlarge):

Getting these flashcards done will allow us to play a super fun game I learned about a few weeks ago…

Boom Bag!

I’M EXCITED! 🙂

I hope everyone has a happy, healthy, and SAFE Thanksgiving break!
