Quarter 1 Homework Assignments

Weekly science homework is usually assigned on Monday and due on Thursday.   (Students may turn in work early if they wish.)

Assignments are designed to reinforce, extend, or sometimes introduce what students learn in class. 

Students are expected to

  • read the instructions carefully
  • exert a reasonable effort to complete the assignment
  • turn in a neat, readable final product that they can be proud of.   

Assignments will usually take between 20-60 minutes. 

Daily homework assignments should take about 10 minutes; they are designed to help students review and remember what they did during class that day.

Long-term learning is greatly enhanced when students review new knowledge within 8-12 hours.
