Mrs. Rossow's Classroom
Welcome to Mrs. Rossow's Science Classroom!
In 7th and 8th grade Science this year, we will be working with a national STEM program called Project Lead the Way (PLTW).
Each grade will have 2 STEM classes that correspond with their grade level standards. PLTW aims to meet all the standards by providing students basic science concepts and having them apply their knowledge to real world problems.
7th grade will have Design and Model and Medical Detectives. Design and Model will introduce students to engineering concepts such as the design process, will allow students to work with computer modeling software, and will give students a chance to solve real world problems like
engineers do. Medical Detectives incorporates many life science concepts and allows students the opportunity to be forensic investigators. It is like a CSI for middle school!
8th Grade will have Energy and the Environment, and Flight and Space. Both classes will center around the 8th grade Earth Science Standards. Energy and the Environment will combine concepts of physical and earth science, and make them applicable to today's issues concerning our environment. Flight and Space will take a look at the physics behind various aircrafts, and will explore what lies outside of the Earth.
This school year, the OLG Middle School will be using Google Classroom as our main source of communication with the students regarding class work. On Google Classroom, students can expect to find a daily blog post, any class documents, and other important materials such as retake tickets, study guides, course syllabus, etc.
To access my Google Classroom, login with your students and look around!
Please, let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
