Dear Students, Your second semester of exams are right around the corner. If you are making good grades you should still be studying a minimum of one hour per night. If you are struggling in your courses you should be studying 2 to 3 hours per night, every night. Do not wait till the night before the exam and expect to get a good mark. You need to develop good habits at this time of your life. Your study habits will largely determine how well you do at school. Also, Do Not Forget, If you have a question, Ask! If you need help, Ask! We teachers are here to help you. If you need extra help, Ask! I wish you the best in life and success on your exams. Sincerely, Mr. John

Dear Students, The "Scarecrow Project" is designed to help you improve you creative scientific abilities. The "problem" of scaring birds away from the sawah, is an "opportunity" for us to have fun trying to help our neighbors.
The design parameters/rules are that I have given are:
Demonstrate a Force over a distance.
Demonstrate an Energy Transfer.
Demonstrate that you have worked creatively to solve this problem.
Make something "cool" that will interest primary students.
Make a design that is re-useable. It cannot be only used once because the birds need scaring many, many times everyday.
Your grade will be based on the criteria above.
7th Grade Science Exam Preparation Guidelines The exam will cover Units Physics and the Solar in the ORANGE Course Book and Work Book as well as Units Course Book and Work Book + The Scientific Method. Review both books, your note books, handouts and old tests. This website and the Link to the YouTube Channel Below also haves good materials to help you review. When Studying the Course Book, Focus on the Questions and Summaries. (just like every test) You should study the vocabulary that you do not know but Remember the idea of science is not about memorization but about figuring out how to answer questions and developing real understanding.
