Elemental Chemistry Class – 5th through 8th graders

Welcome to Elemental Chemistry for the Logic Stage! In this class we will be exploring the world of chemistry with hands-on experiments, videos, reading, report writing and sharing information with our fellow classmates.

This will be a two-day class, meeting on Fridays (9-10:30 AM EST) in person and Wednesdays (1-2:30 PM EST) online. Wednesdays will include Minecraft Education Edition projects.

As a student in this class you will be expected to come to class prepared to discuss material and keep up with homework in order to have the best experience possible! If you wish to have this class graded, I will expect you to turn in assignments on time. Quizzes and tests will be taken virtually only.

COVID Disclaimer “Covid precautions -this class will be offered in person, with the option of simultaneously watching via Zoom. Events in our homes are private, not public events. Therefore, students should wear masks if desired by their family, but we won’t be enforcing social distancing or masks at events in our home. We will try to keep events outside as much as possible. People who feel ill, have a temperature or have been in contact with a Covid-positive person in the last 14 days should not attend physically, but participate virtually. As teachers, we will not be masked. Students will be encouraged to keep their hands to themselves. Surfaces in common areas will be disinfected frequently. If one of the teachers shows symptoms, or has come into known contact with any Covid-positive people, classes will be taught virtually during their isolation. For this reason we ask all participating families have internet access and a computer available for student use.”
