Earth science students,

822 and 825- Please take the time to print off lab #26 and have it in class for this week. I have provided a link to it below.

Lab #26- Weather Station Models

828- Please take the time to print off lab #25 and have it in class for this week. I have provided a link to it below. If you want to, go ahead and print off lab #26 as well since you will have to at some point .

Lab #25- Cyclonic Weather Systems

This is homework, and if you do not have it in, you will receive a zero has a homework grade.

626,

The project that I assigned a couple weeks ago entitled: “Can Animals Think”, will be due on Friday, 4/17.

I would prefer that you had the assignment in by Monday, the day we return from school, however the official due day will be that Friday.

If you have any friends from class, please be sure to contact them and let them know about this post.

Earth science students,

Please take the time to print off lab #25 and have it in class for this week. I have provided a link to it below.

This is homework, and if you do not have it in, you will receive a zero has a homework grade.

Class 825- We will taking some class time on Thursday to go over this lab, so make sure you have in class. It will be a lab that you are responsible for on the Friday when you come back from break, so you will NOT have a lab period to complete it in class.

Lab #25- Cyclonic Weather Systems

Earth science students,

Below is a link to the final project you will be completing. Please make sure to attach an argumentative essay rubric to your final project. Make sure to read the entire project sheet and be sure you are using at least all three sources (and that you cite it in a ‘works cited’ page).

Earth science students,

Below is the link to the take home test that is due on Friday, 3/27.

3rd Quarterly Take Home Exam

Please take your time with this, work together, and be sure every answer is the correct one as this test is meant to boost your grade!

Check Your Labs!

Earth science students,

Please check your Jupiter accounts for the updated labs I put in over the weekend.

You should all be at either 21 or 22 labs by now, and even one lab missing will bar you from the regents exam.

If you are at all concerned about the regents coming up in June, please come see me immediately about it.

– Mr. Paccione

Earth science students,

Here is the mock test that you will be completing tomorrow in class. Please print this off but do not complete it!!!

3rd Quarterly- Mock Exam
