Welcome in Google Classroom

Welcome

Welcome 7th grade students !
Some of you I may have seen/talked with on campus last year, and some may be new to the area.
I am looking forward to a fun year - even though it is starting out remotely.
Of course I wish we were all going to be in the classroom at this time.
However, with the internet, zoom, etc., we will be able to see each other and hopefully be able
to work in groups, called breakout rooms, in Zoom.
My hope is that by the end of the year, if not sooner, you will appreciate science, maybe even love it.
I plan to work (zoom) from the classroom as much as possible.
I also plan to demonstrate some experiments there during the zoom sessions.
Hopefully, you may be able to do some labs at home using simple, and common, supplies.
We CAN get through this successfully together!
