The Science Pitt Stop

Mrs. Pittaluga – 8th Grade Science

Week of 11/7/16


  • Regular science – Today, students did a cut-and-paste sorting activity related to the macromolecules webquest they did last week. I also passed out a study guide for the test students will be taking on Thursday. The study guide can be found here – Molecular Biology – Study Guide. this is due before the test on Thursday.
  • Advanced science – Students completed the building macromolecules activity they began on Friday. I also passed out a study guide (Cellular Energy Test Study guide) to help with preparing for the test on Thursday. Finally, there is an extra credit webquest posted to Google Classroom. Students who choose to do this assignment should have it completed by Thursday.


  • No School – Election Day


  • Regular science – Students were given time today to finish working on the macromolecule sorting activity we began on Monday. We then worked through a Kahoot to review for the test tomorrow. As a reminder, the test study guide is due tomorrow.
  • Advanced science – Today I went through a brief Powerpoint review (Cellular Energy Review) covering information we have been working on over the last couple of weeks and then the class played a Kahoot game to review. As a reminder, Science in the News is due tomorrow IF it is written, otherwise it can be turned in through Google Classroom by Friday.


  • Both classes took the test on molecular biology today. The test was administered through SchoolNet so grades will be uploaded to PowerSchool by the end of the day.


  • No School – Veteran’s Day
