3rd Six Weeks

Week of November 12-16

Students will explore the process that led to the formationof Sedimentary rocks and Fossil Fuels

Sedimentary rocks formation

  1. Weathering- The breaking down of rocks into smaller pieces called sediments
  2. Erosion- Sediments moved By wind, Water, Gravity, Ice.
  3. Deposition- The movement of the sediments in a new location.
  4. Compaction-Sediments being pressed down together.
  5. Cementation- The sticking of sediments by clay and other minerals in the ground

Fossil Fuel Formation

Fossil Fuels are Coal, Oil (petroleum, or gasoline), and Natural Gas

Week 3 october 22-26

Demonstrate that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object and is reflected or refracted.


refraction: the bending of light


Reflection: the bouncing off of light.


Week 2 October 15-19

Flow of electricity in closed circuits produce light, heat, or sound.


Week1 October 8-12

Explore the uses of energy.
