Welcome to Team D!
Our goal is to support all students in attaining their goals and reaching towards the Farmington Vision of the Graduate. Along the way, we strive to make positive connections and prepare students for the important transition to high school.
Any questions or concerns please contact your child's homeroom teacher or Team D leader, Ms. Becker at BeckerS@fpsct.org.
If you visit Team D, here is what you'll see students working on:
In Spanish and French classes, students are reviewing 7th grade materials such as adjective agreement, how to ask questions in the target language and how to introduce themselves.
In Math classes, Pre-Algebra and Algebra students are studying functions and will soon move into learning the Pythagorean Theorem and plane figures; Geometry students are studying transformations and will soon move into coordinate geometry and learning the Pythagorean Theorem.
In Social Studies class....
In Language Arts classes, students began their research in the library on the rebel project. The student learning target: I can demonstrate how a real-life rebel can shape and changed history through my research. Upon completion of the notes and works cited, students will write a magazine article which highlights the early life, influences, mentors, opponents, accomplishments, and legacy of this person. Finally, students will present this real-life rebel to the class in a first-person oral presentation.
In Science class, students are beginning their unit on Cell Biology. They have defined what it means to be "living" v. "not living". They will continue the unit by focusing on the essential question, "How do cells obtain and use energy?" They will study photosynthesis, respiration, and cellular structure and function in order to answer this important question.
