Virtual School Days

CANVAS LEARNING PLATFORM

Students will find their daily assignments in the CANVAS COURSE titled 2020-21 virtual.

This CANVAS course is easy for students to access because it is an app on their IAM page when they log in.  

Assignments will be given with the date in the title to help keep students on track and to know the order in which the assignments are given.  It is important to complete assignments in a timely manner.  

The first assignment listed in CANVAS, students will access every day.  It is titled Zoom Science Link.  This assignment provide instruction on joining a zoom science class and what to do if the zoom class is not available for that day.  All students should start science in this assignment.  It is expected that students join the zoom class at their assigned class time. 

DIGITAL GOOGLE SLIDE SCIENCE NOTEBOOK

Most student work will be completed in DIGITAL GOOGLE SLIDES that will serve as the students science notebook.  I will help face to face students get the digital notebook setup on the first day of school.  The directions for the digital notebook setup is in the CANVAS course:  2020-21 virtual.  It is titled August 17th: Google Notebook set up. (My virtual only learners will need to read and follow the directions and contact me if they need help through the CANVAS assignment or by email.)
