6th Grade Science Students,

Below is an assignment which will have you graphing the layers of atmosphere. It is due on Monday, 2/22 when you get back from vacation. This is a larger homework, so it will be worth three homework assignments.

Layers of the Atmosphere

If you want, you can work together in groups to get it done. Or you can work by yourself. Whatever you want.

Earth  Science Students,

The following are the official due dates for each of the tasks. These dates are also on Jupiter Grades as well.

  1. Drafting Map (Task 1)- Tuesday, 2/23
  2. Google Earth Model or 2-D Groundwater Contamination Model (Task 2 or Task 3)- Monday, 2/29
  3. Site Investigation Report (Task 4)- Tuesday, 2/23

I have moved Lab #17 and Lab #18 back to accommodate all of this work. Please check jupiter grades for those as well.

– Mr. Paccione

 

Class 820 and 821,

For whatever reason, I had the wrong files uploaded to Jupiter grades for the project… they were excel files instead of the google earth files.

The correct files are now there. Not entirely sure how this happened, but its fixed.

Again, if you have ANY questions at all, please email me/comment on the website. I will answer every single one of your questions.

Earth Science Students,

Here are the Google Earth tutorial videos I promised I would make for you. Of course, these can also be found on the main project page at the top of the website along with every other resource you’ll need for this. 

  • Groundwater Contamination- Google Earth Tutorial #1- Downloading the Program-  https://youtu.be/puZa91vlSuE
  • Groundwater Contamination- Google Earth Tutorial #2- Navigating Google Earth-  https://youtu.be/BBQv8Ue54Bw
  • Groundwater Contamination- Google Earth Tutorial #3- Layers of Data  https://youtu.be/WEGIBt5sgnM
  • Groundwater Contamination- Google Earth Tutorial #4- Task 1 Building Your Drafting Map  https://youtu.be/Knl2WdehRD8
  • Groundwater Contamination- Google Earth Tutorial #5- Task 2 Isolines and Plume Polygons  https://youtu.be/3DXmdApG8SI

Remember, in order for Google Earth to be of any use to you, you must download the google earth files (.kmz) as well as the site data from your Jupiter Grades account. All of your teachers should have uploaded the files for you.

Earth Science Students,

I am fully aware of the challenge (and many headaches/frustration) this project will bring you.

In my ever ongoing effort to support you in all of your Earth science endeavors, I have consolidated absolutely everything you will need to complete this project all in one location which can be found at the top of my website.

I have yet to add a tutorial on Google Earth. It is on its way.

6th Grade Science Students,

Below you can find a link to your project essay which is due on Friday, 2/12.

3a. Deadly and Powerful Hurricanes (Essay Project)

Be sure to include a 6th grade informative essay rubric. If you fail to include a 6th grade argumentative rubric, I will be deducting 2 points off of your final grade.

Here is a link to the rubric: https://commonessay.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/informational-text-rubric-grade-6-v2.pdf

As always, please be sure to follow everything that is stated on the rubric. That is how I will be grading it.
