Mr. Cypher-Tierney’s Science Class!

 

Important Notice: ARE YOU ON THE YELLOW OR RED TEAM? CHECK YOUR EMAIL TO FIND OUT! YELLOW AND RED TEAM STUDENTS ONLY COME ON CERTAIN DAYS SO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW YOUR TEAM AND UNDERSTAND YOUR SCHEDULE.

Email me at ncypher@phoenixclc.org if you have any questions about hybrid learning for the remaining school year.

Hello! My name is Mr. Cypher-Tierney. Science is my favorite subject to learn and teach! I have always been curious about the world around me. It is my mission to help students become life-long learners of science. Learning about science at a young age will help students be successful in an increasingly scientific and technologic world.

Some things about me: I love the outdoors, going on hikes, exploring new places, running, cooking, and hanging out with friends and family!

In science, I use Savvas Realize, Study Island, Nearpod, and Zoom along with the Phoenix website to educate my students. Students MUST get online to learn. Not going online will put them at risk for falling behind. Help your child by sitting down with them to see how they access the following websites. At the links below, students will be able to log in and find all the assignments that will help them keep their skills sharp and tuned. To reach me please email me at: ncypher@phoenixclc.org

Announcement! 4/7

Hello fifth and sixth graders,
 
Today is a very important day for Study Island. Fifth grader is finishing up "light energy" and sixth grade is finishing up "atoms and molecules." As we move to the next topic, please read the Study Island lesson. Take notes which will help you remember key points and supporting details. Also take a moment to analyze all pictures and watch all videos. The next topics on Study Island are "sound" for fifth grade and "mass, volume and density" for sixth grade. We will explore these topics more once you come back into the building on either 4/12 or 4/13. 
 
Finally, the last day so submit the 3rd quarter project is tomorrow Thursday 4/8. 
 
Please check for updates on the schedule for returning back to school!
 
Best,
 
Mr. Cypher-Tierney

Hi 6th grade,
 
Begin reading the lesson called "mass, volume, and density" on Study Island. You must finish "atoms and molecules" on Study Island if you haven't. 

5th grade 4/5

Hi 5th graders,
 
You will begin reading the lesson called "sound" on Study Island or finish "light energy" if that is incomplete.

Hi everyone, 
On December 21st Saturn and Jupiter appeared very close in the sky! So close in fact that they won’t be that close again in 800 years! Here is a picture of the two planets through a telescope. Can you see Saturn’s rings? What about Jupiter’s moons?
