Welcome new Titans to Northwest Cabarrus Middle School (NCMS). I am looking forward to an exciting and interesting year of learning! We are going to be learning about matter, earth and space, energy and plants. All around, it will be an adventure.
What will I need for science class?
My intention is to keep everything digital this year including when/if we come back to the physical classroom. Students will demonstrate their understanding of the material through many creative ways including digital posters, comics and other on-line activities and projects. So, for most students, all you will need is the chromebook the school has loaned you and occasionally something to write with and some paper to write on.
I understand that some are not as comfortable with digital formats, so MOST (not necessarily all) assignments will allow for students to upload clear pictures of physical projects. Students who are more inclined to take written notes, write a sentence or paragraph in response to a question (instead of type), or prepare a physical project to demonstrate understanding will need a little more. You will need:
- a notebook to keep all of your work together. This notebook can be a composition (marble) notebook, a spiral bound notebook, or a three ring binder with loose leaf paper in it.
- something for coloring. (I have found that a set of colored pencils and a sharpener are best.)
- Personally, I am not a fan of drawing on lined paper, you might want to get some unlined paper for drawing. Printer paper or construction paper will be fine...nothing fancy.
I am looking forward to an exciting year an look forward to meeting all of you for live classes in Microsoft Teams and in our virtual classroom on Canvas!
