*Remember - Students are responsible for ALL classwork, homework, labs, notes, quizes, and tests. Regardless if a student is absent, late, at the nurse, on a fieldtrip, or for any other reason... students are still responsible for all work during the time/days that they missed class. Homework is due at the BEGINNING of class. I am usually available before school, during lunch, and after school (except Mondays and Tuesdays) if a student needs to take a quiz, take a test, do a lab, or ask questions.

--Mini Poster Assignment. Students are to create a poster about one of the following scientists (Dalton, Thomson, or Rutherford). The poster should only the be size of a normal piece of paper and must include:
1) - What was their experiment
2) - What did they learn from their experiment
3) - What was their model of an atom
The focus of the mini poster is to teach other students about the historical findings and work of one of these scientists. I will not be grading on color or artistry, but students must provide quality information.
