    Hi 7B and thank you for once again checking the blog! 
    I am sorry that I am not able to give you experiements or live activities like the rat dissection lab but I do spend many hours trying to find interesting videos and creating engaging content. I hope you are enjoying what you see.

    This is the 6th cycle at the moment, please do all of the Google Classroom assignments. I will be posting up extra credit oppourtunities in the middle of the week if you have time. The extra credit is NOT a substitute for the week's assignment and should only be done after the week's assignment has been completed. 

    This week, students are to complete 2 things:

    1. Fill in the Catastrophic Events Chart

    2. Choose one of the four ScienceFlix assignments and do them on the Google Slide.

    The information to complete this and the step by step instructions are on a third file that is called "How to Complete Instructions". Check this first, then start on the assignments. This is due Sunday, April 19th.

  • School Closure Week 3: April 6 - 10

    Posted by RCaraballo on 4/6/2020 10:00:00 AM

    This week, I will be using the new Google Classroom online assignment, "Food Chains GIZMO" as the first grade of the 6th cycle.

    This will be due on Sunday, April 12th.

    You should have two windows open:
    1. HISD website application: The HUB
    2. Google Classroom assignment: Food Chain GIZMO doc

    I have to put grades for 5th cycle in before April 8th.
    I am so impressed that despite not being at school, there are so many students who are on point with deadlines. Yet, there are still many grades that have not been completed. Please reach out to me as soon as possible to fix any glitches, errors or concerns regarding grades. Email me: RCARABAL@houstonisd.org

    If you want to check what grades are missing, check the GradeSpeed Monitor and look for the 3 letters: MSG
    This means it is missing.

    I want to help out as much as possible but unless I am reached, I cannot do anything about it.

    There are many families that I do not have any contact info. Either it was incorrectly input at the beginning of the year or it has expired. 

    Please reach out to me so I may be able to help you.
