This week students are learning about natural selection, adaptations, and symbiotic relationships.

World Geography

This week students are taking notes on various economy types, learning about types and parts of maps, bias and perspective in maps, a cartographer's challenge activity that is an 80% grade, natural resources, and regions.


Students need to bring a charged computer to class every day. This means computers need to be charged every night. Please help students remember to charge them. Thank you.
