Welcome to 7th-8th Grade
Classroom News and Notes
Week of Sept. 21-25
Mr. Markgraf’s Classes
7-8 Religion: We’re looking at the importance of context in Scripture this week. Too often, passages are taken out of context! We’ll be practicing how to use the surrounding statements to allow us to interpret the meaning of certain sections of the Bible.
Math: Another test is coming this week! Algebra is starting to find out that this year isn’t going to be all easy review like we’ve had so far!
7-8 Science: Our main focus last week was on cells and the organelles that make a cell work the way it does. This week, our focus will be on all the different things that cells do! Our essential question for this unit is: “How does God use cells to sustain life?”
3-8 P.E.: It’s time for some fun this week! We will be playing an old favorite: Capture the flag! But there’s a twist…
God bless your week!

5-6th Science- We continue to look at weather and climate this week as we follow the water cycle, weather fronts, and read some articles. This will be our last week of weather though. We will have a review next Monday with a test the following day.
5-6th Social Studies- Today we move away from the infographic a little as we research times throughout history of each of the branches of governments do their specific jobs. Students will research news articles and broadcasts and create a presentation to show the class.
