Welcome to Mrs. Raleigh and Mrs. Orsini's Science Class on Team 7-1!
Get ready for a fun, exciting, thought-provoking, hands-on year in science! On any given day in the classroom you can expect to be conducting labs and investigations using scientific practices, running virtual simulations, participating in demonstrations, class discussions, utilizing the engineering design process for a variety of in-class projects and building challenges, making models, watching video clips, creating an amazing INB (interactive notebook), and researching. Always keep an open mind and be involved in the conversation and exploration - whether it's coming up to the board, participating in a demonstration, adding to discussions, or actively contributing to team activities! Questions are always welcome, if you have one, ASK! If you need clarification, ASK!
It is important that you bring your school-issued iPad with charger (and earbuds), your INB, writing utensils, and any other materials you might need to class each day. Your INB will be a life-saver throughout the year and a prized possession when you are finished with it at the end of the year! Be prepared, stay focused, and strive for your best and you will meet your goals with much success!
Mission for the Class
Everyone will gain positive social skills, work cooperatively and productively in teams, enhance prior knowledge, utilize and retain material presented in the 7th grade science curriculum, and have a greater passion for science and engineering. You will each leave the 7th grade as critically-thinking, responsible, and contributing individuals within our society.
