Science 8 – June 15
Our last week of classes was kind of weird. We had double blocks of each class and even though attendance was not optional, in reality it was. Not many of my students showed up this week other than my grade 8 students. This schedule worked out very well for us because 2 hours was a very comfortable time for doing an eye dissection.
I visited some other classes in May that did the eye dissection during regular class time and it seemed a bit rushed. They would do a prep worksheet one day and then the dissection the next day. Having everyone do everything in one long class made the whole process smoother, from what I could tell.
