Good evening, parents!
Party letters were sent home yesterday in Wednesday folders asking for donations as well as food items.

6.8A compare and contrast potential and kinetic energy
6.9C demonstrate energy transformations such as energy in a flashlight battery changes from chemical energy to electrical energy to light energy.
6.9A investigate methods of thermal energy transfer, including conduction, convection, and radiation
6.9B verify through investigations that thermal energy moves in a predictable pattern from warmer to cooler until all the substances attain the same temperature such as an ice cube melting
Students have numerous tools within Google Classroom (Pearson, Mobymax and more) to help them study. Don't forget to study your INB.
