7th and 8th Graders, welcome to the FACS! The Family and Consumer Science Department!
In FACS, 7th and 8th grade students learn basic cooking using both a microwave and an oven. Let's face it, everyone needs to eat, and knowing how to cook food safely on your own is a wonderful thing! They will learn and practice kitchen safety and the proper use of measuring equipment. Students will also learn and be expected to wash dishes by hand in class when preparing food. Students will also learn how to use a washer, but washing by hand never goes out of syle! ;) Recipes will be available at this website or on lms.paxpat.com for all foods made in class.
6th Graders, welcome to Engineering and Tech!
In Engineering and Tech, 6th graders will be learning the basics of Google Docs, an online storage network that will be used heavily in later classes. Students will learn how to save and share documents on the Cloud and understand the difference between saving a document to the Cloud and saving a document to the Network. Students will learn the basics of using Google Document, Slides, Sheets, Drawing, and Forms and will complete basic projects in each document format. Students will also practice typing skills using two websites, which are listed below. These sites will be used as bell ringers for the first few minutes of every class day.
www.nitrotype.com (Students will log into this site using Google)
