Attention Lower School Parents! The School of Grammar will again be celebrating Nova Book Week this year! Nova’s Book Week will take place the week of December 17-21. We will be highlighting favorite books and celebrating all the wonderful things our students read. We will also invite students to dress up as their favorite book characters on Wednesday, December 19. Please choose characters originally from books, not cartoon, movie or television characters (or actors) made into books. We will have assemblies that day in celebration of the characters represented and the joy of reading. Students may wear their costumes until lunch, but must then change into their Nova uniform. Please make sure your child brings a complete uniform to change into before lunch. More information about the times of the assemblies will be forthcoming.
Check with your child’s homeroom teacher for spelling list words. Lesson 12 is a review week from lessons 7-11.
Mr. Kimble’s and Mr. Weninger’s list for lesson 12:
Chapter 4 Test Study Guide
Tuesday, November 27
Vocabulary (matching)-erosion, physical weathering, chemical weathering, deposition, mass wasting, earthquake, fault, lava, magma, volcano
Labeling—be able to label a diagram with terms/vocabulary word—for example, types of tectonic plate boundaries, formations
Describe the theory of plate tectonics
Types of plate boundaries—how they are similar and different—convergent, divergent, and transform
Causes of tectonic plate movement and an understanding of what each is—subduction and convection
Types of mountains formed at different plate boundaries—mid-ocean ridges, volcanic arcs, and folded mountain ranges
Lithosphere/Asthenosphere-define each and know the components
How and where volcanoes are formed
Earthquakes—what they are, what causes them, and where they occur (in general by a fault, most often at a plate boundary)
How weathering, erosion, and deposition work together
Erosion—different forces (wind, water, organisms, glaciers) that cause erosion—differences in how these forces erode if the landscape changes (ie—rivers are able to carry heavier sediment if they move faster
Deposition—what causes it to occur (something slows down), what can be formed (deltas), what deposited first (larger sediment)
The chapter 4 science test will be Tuesday, November 27th. Students have been learning about the Earth’s surface. The study guide will be sent home before break.
We will be having a history quiz on Thursday. Students should review and study the answers to their homework questions as well as their study guides that they received today. They should also study their vocabulary lists. The quiz will cover chapters 7-9.
