Thursday, 18 January 2007 21:50:49 (Pacific Standard Time, UTC-08:00) ( Science -O- Rama )
Welcome back to a new semester, a fresh start!

Our focus is answering the question, "what is life?", and to learn about the classification of organisms (emphasizing the different types of living things). Along the way, we'll be working on Science-O-Rama projects (also known as Science Fair) and learning about cell reproduction, and genetics.

Students will continue to have homework on a daily basis, although sometimes it will be part of a project. Expect daily additions to the Binder Reminder.
