Weekly Science Homework Directions

GT Weekly Science Assignments

Ms. Weyant’s Science Class

For the remainder of the year, students will use this handout to complete their weekly vocabulary homework assignments. All science homework assignments are to be recorded in their agenda book, and a homework completion grade will be given each week for just having the vocabulary assignment completed on a weekly basis. Additionally, each student will have a weeklong assignment that will be giving out on Monday and due the last day of the week (this will typically be on Thursday or Friday) which will also be graded for accuracy.

Weekly: Complete the weekly handout that is given on Monday. The weekly assignment is due on Friday.

Vocabulary needs to be kept in the pocket of their science folder as a reference to study from weekly.
