Science: Fossils and Fossil Fuels 

Fossil- Any remains, trace, or imprint of animal or plant life preserved in Earth’s crust.

Petrification- The process by which an organism is turned to stone over a long period of time.

Mold- A space in the sediments that fills with minerals.

Cast- A copy of an organism, like a fossil, that is created by the minerals in a mold.

Natural Resources- A material such as soil or water that comes from the natural environment.

Renewable Resources- A resource that is naturally replenished continuously and quickly such as sunlight, water, and air.

Nonrenewable Resources- a resource that is not replenished because it takes extended periods to form such as rocks, minerals, and fossil fuels.

Fossil Fuels- plants and animals that became buried under sediments millions of years ago and slowly transforms into substances such as coal, petroleum, and natural gas.

Homework Procedures:

The newsletter and any homework given will be sent home every Friday and is due the following Friday.























Every child has access to a Schoology account. While it is currently being used by our virtual learners, it is also a great resource for traditional students. Traditional students are not required to complete any assignments through schoology ,but they are welcome to do them for extra practice. There are also video lessons they can watch to review.

Students have their username and password on their lunch tag lanyard. Thanks for all your help and support at home! 


Don't forget students can also practice on I-Ready and IXl. :) 

















Clever allows students to log into the virtual math textbook, I-ready, and many other learning tools.
