Week 3 Lesson Plans

Week Three Lesson Plans for August 24th – 28th

Chemistry I – This week we will be getting into the lab to cut, fire polish, and bend glass tubing.  This allows me to identify the pyromaniacs and deviants so I am aware of their presence in the lab.  It is fine to be fascinated by fire – I just want to be aware.  I certainly love fire myself.  We will also be reviewing unit I to prepare for the test on Friday.  Students will learn and identify lab equipment for the test as well.
