Hi class,

This month's character education word is Respect. We have all discussed what respect means, but I thought I would post this video about respect, written by a school counselor at another school.

I know it's pretty silly, but I thought it might make you laugh. Your assignment for the week is to tell me two ways you can be respectful this week while at school. You can't list anything that anyone else has posted above you, so the sooner the better!
Have a great week!

Circuits and Electronics

In science, we have learned the circuits control the flow of electric charge. For this week's assignment, you are going to build a virtual circuit!

Go to this link at Scroll down to "Circuits" and see if you can complete the circuit and light the bulb.
What parts are necessary to light the bulb?
What happened when you opened the switch?
What happened when you closed the switch?
Can you build a circuit without the battery? Why or why not?
How is this similar or different from the snap circuits in our class?

Answer at least one of those questions as a comment below by next Friday, September 18th.
