Kasperson Week 8
I hope you are all doing well! I can’t believe we are almost done with quarter one!
REMINDER: Students are welcome to correct any classwork to improve their grade except for bellwork, tests, and quizzes. They can earn ½ a point back for every point corrected. I would HIGHLY recommend this to improve grades!
What We are Learning:
7th Grade: We have been talking about parts of the cell and they will start a fun project! Today I turned the classroom into a “Cell-bucks” as they compared cells and their functions to the many functions within a coffee shop. It was fun!
8th Grade: Students have been learning about non-Mendelian traits and put it into practice with their Monster Lab. Next week they will be discussing ethics and genetics.
Psychology: Students have begun learning about the nervous system and brain scans. Next week they will learn more about the parts of the brain and their functions.
Forensics: Students have been learning about interviewing suspects and sketching potential suspects. Next week they will learn about physical evidence and how it is collected.

Each week I will share a quick video of what I have been up to besides teaching/prepping! I hope it inspires everyone to take some breaks, get away from the screens, and do what fuels YOU! If you need any suggestions, you can steal any of my ideas. 🙂
Here’s the list so far:
- Play an instrument
- Eat some frozen yogurt and watch the sunset!
- Go for a walk
- Do a workout! (Youtube is a great place to start!)
- Play basketball
- Bike Ride
