End of School Year Thoughts

Posted by iateacher on May 30, 2008

Parents, and Guardians:

Well, here we are at the end of another year.  I don’t know about all of you, but for me this year seems to have flown by!  It seems like just the other day I was going over rules and expectations and now I’m saying good bye!  😦 

I just want to say thank you to all the parents who have assisted in any way this year.  Whether it was going on a field trip, stopping in for a conference, or just being supportive when I had to call home, I appreciate it all. 

I also want to say that I have enjoyed getting to know your child.  I think we had a pretty good year and I hope all my students remember what I told them today.  If they ever need anything they can come see me!  My motto is “Once a student of Mr.  Yerington ALWAYS  a student of Mr. Yerington!

Earth Science Test

Posted by iateacher on May 15, 2008

Attention Parents, Guardians and Students:

This is to let you know that the LAST TEST of the year will be on THURSDAY, MAY 22!!  The test covers Earth Science and below are some items that students should study.  There will be an online test published later (sometime next week) and when that is done I will post the link here!

Students need to know (in no particular order)

  • They types of stress placed on rocks and what they can do to the rock
  • The types of faults
  • They types of earthquake waves and their properties
  • The types of damages done by earthquakes
  • The instruments used by geologists to monitor earthquakes and faults
  • The three main scales used to measure the strength of an earthquake
  • Why we can’t predict earthquakes
  • The difference between focus and epicenter
  • What the Ring of Fire is

Students should also be prepared to :

  • Label the major tectonic plates
  • List the types of plate boundaries
  • List the layers of the Earth
  • List the evidence used to support the theory of continental drift

Good luck!!  I hope all my students study hard since this is the LAST test and their LAST chance to help their grade!
