Welcome to Churubusco Middle School Science Wiki.

This is a 7th grade project where students will be choosing a Science topic that they want to learn about. They will be researching and creating their own page to showcase what they have learned through the project.

When finished, they will be evaluating their own projects and hopefully taking some knowledge with them.

Please feel free to contact the teacher if you have any questions.

Please take some time to answer the following questions for me. Please post your answers to the Project evaluation discussion board. I am expecting each student to answer individually.

Project Evaluation
1. Tell me about your page: What do you like? What are you proud of? What are the highlights?

2. Tell me about your BuscoScience experience: What did you enjoy about it? What did you learn?

3. What challenges did you face? What was difficult? What would you do differently next time?

4. What advice would you give me, so that I could improve the project next time?

5. How would you compare this science project to others that you have done?

6. Final comments?

I have noticed that some of you have created pages. Those pages have been added to the TOC. Nice Job so far. I have also noticed that some of you have changed your picture ID. Also great. Keep it up!!!

Some of you may be asking how much information on the page is the right amount. Well that is kind of a gray area. You should be VERY detailed in your research and just as detailed in your project.

Remember that creativity is expected. I do not want a plain research paper!!!!!

I expect you to be thorough in your writing and gramatically correct as well. Make sure there are no spelling errors.

Due date for the entire project will be March 28, 2008 (Friday before Spring Break starts.) All changes to pages will be locked out at that time.

I have created 2 discussion boards for your use. The first is for general questions. The second is for topic titles. Once you have chosed your title and created your page, please post to topic board so that I may link your page to the TOC (table of contents.)

You now have passwords and user IDs.


You should change your passwords upon your first log in and DO NOT give that password out to anyone. (Not even your BFF!!!) You are responcible for your account and anything that comes out of it.

You should place all of your information on the buscoscience wiki. Do not create your own space. You should only creating a New Page on the buscoscience site. If you have questions please post it under the question discussion board.

REMINDER: Have your topics picked out by this Friday!!!!! Because of the change in the computer lab days, you now have until next Wednesday to choose your topics. Remember that they should be narrow in scope. i.e. Polaris instead of stars
