    We continue our adventure with bacteria and viruses this week. We are doing a Hand Sanitizer Lab where students will be swabbing different areas for bacteria and testing the affects of different sanitizers like soap or any alcohol based sanitizer. It is really gross when students swab their phones and discover a large presence of bacteria on the one thing they hold dear to their hearts. Other activities are meant to help get students to understand how easily disease can spread in certain environments and why good hygiene is so important to practice.
    We will have a QUIZ ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14th. Students will be given their reviews on Monday and should be done with all notes on Tuesday. Please get your student to look over the notes for 10-15 minutes a day to help them retain the information given.

This week's plan (approx.):
Monday 11/10: Start Hand Sanitizer Lab, Spread of Disease Activity
Tuesday 11/11: Finish Bacteria Guided Notes, Bacteria Review Stations
Wednesday 11/12: Wrap up Hand Sanitizer Lab, Observe and record results
Thursday 11/13: Review in class, group activity or individual
Friday 11/14: Bacteria/Virus Quiz
