MS. PHILLIPS' SCIENCE CLASS

04-04-16 to 04-08-16

Hello wonderful LPA parents. Our students are reviewing for the Milestones test. Students will review concepts from the geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy. I am pleased to say when we reviewed, using the GA Milestones EOG questions (available on Edmodo in the folders tab under Milestone 2016 Science), most of our scholars felt confident in their understanding. To ensure that their confidence remains, please review concepts on USA Test Prep.


SCIENCE FAIR 2016

The science fair project has been postponed until next semester. Thank you for all your hard work and research you have completed.
