    Good Morning, You Wonderful Kids!  April 13,2020


    Welcome to Distance Learning 101, the class where, technologically speaking, most of you are already ahead of the teacher!


    Now this is Dr B talking because Ms Bach are trying to make sure that all classes receive exactly the same information during this confusing period!  If ANYTHING is EVER unclear -TOUCH BASE!


    As you have heard, each week, on Mondays and Wednesdays, Ms Bach and I are going to produce 75 minute lessons for you to continue your Science education work at home during the quarantine.  We are working to provide you with active 40 minute lessons followed by 35 minutes of independent work for you to accomplish on your own on each day.


    We are going to be presenting the SAME material to BOTH Ms Bach’s and Dr B’s classes. 


    I guess that puts all of us on the same Quadrant.  HA HA HA HA – Sorry! Dad Joke. – Force of Habit.


    As you may guess, our classes are not in perfect synchronization.  So these first lessons will be partially review for some students.  Some of the work, however, will be new to everyone. 


    All of the work is mounted in the Google Classroom to which each and every one of you has been invited. 


    Again I remind you , if you have NOT gotten an invitation to join the classroom, NOTIFY ME, DR B, IMMEDIATELY.  The system spit your email out for some reason, and I simply have to delete you from the classroom and re-invite you.  Easy-Easy!


    Our intention is to provide links to the work (Our Google Classroom) on the new academic platform that you have all been introduced to AND on both of our sites.  If ANYTHING is ever unclear, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contact Ms Bach or me by email, and we will do everything we can to help you out.  Ms Bach and I are determined to be available by email as often as possible during the week.


    Right now we are hoping that the only materials that you will need for our work are a computer, a printer, paper, and pencils.  If we think you may need graph paper, we will put a template of a graph page on one of our websites.


    Now although we are going to merge the assignments, if you have work to turn in, turn it in to your assigned teacher: my students turn it in to me, and Ms Bach’s, to her.


    This week – April 13, 2020 – We have two micro-units on topics with which many of you are already familiar:  Mapping and Geologic Time.


    Here’s hoping that we get back together IN PERSON before the end of the school year.


    Missing you all terribly

    Dr B




    Hello Everyone,     April 12,2020

    I hope my email finds everyone well.                

    As you have heard, Dr.B and I are posting the same activities for all students.  Dr.B and I have put together two lessons for this week.  We have a slide show for Monday on Mapping Earth.  Enjoy the slide show, the reading and questions we have posted.  For Wed. we will be looking into Geological Time. We hope you will have no trouble logging on to the activities.  If you do, please email Dr. B or I and we will try to fix the problem from our end. 

    Monday April 13,2020

    1.  Vocabulary words

    2.  Reading

    3.  Answer guiding questions

    4.  Activity Map

    5.  Google classroom activity 


    Good Morning,                  April 8, 2020

    Dr. B and I are posting activities together on Google classroom.  Everyone should have received an email from Dr. B about the account.  The " Legends of Learning"  has some great activity games you play in the incoming weeks.

    Please go online and take a look at ch.1 sec.4 and read this section.  You might want to do a divided page vocabulary from the vocabulary section, or flash cards.  You haven't seen these words in a long time.

    The next goal is Ch.4. Keep checking your email, Google classroom from Dr. B or I about the upcoming activities.  

    Take care and stay safe, Ms. Bach
