  • 1. Warm-up, 12.01.2009
    What is magnetism? What are some machines that require magnets in order to function?
  • 2. Assignment, due Friday: Cool Science Stuff, Part 2
    Bring in an article, picture, book, video, or song about a topic in science that is interesting or exciting.
    Brief (1-2 minute) presentation = 2 grades.
    Power point or poster-board presentation = 4 grades.
    Group presentation (3 people max) with Powerpoint and multimedia (music/video) = 6 grades.
    Group presentation with powerpoint, multimedia, in-class demonstration/experiment = 8 grades.
  • 3. Chapter 14 Scavenger Hunt
    Get into a group of three. (No, you can’t have more than three. Yes, you can work on your own.)
    Get a book (Physical Science).
    First team to find all of the missing words gets a prize.
    All of the answers are found in chapter 14 (p. 422-449).
    You may start when I change the slide.
