Students took part in the first day of the science MCAS this morning. The test covered the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science curriculum, as well as Tech Ed, Computers, and Health. And they wonder why only 39% of Massachusetts passed the test last year!
Oh well. We’ll do our best. After the test, students in my Hydrogen, Helium, and Lithium classes were diagnosed with TBS (Tired Brain Syndrome). So the classes took part in outdoor lessons that included a nature walk, as well as students trying to examine the modern evolution of Dandelions.
The second half of the Science MCAS is tomorrow. Sleep tight, everyone.
