The Swann Lion Times
Your Swann news update!
What Our Lions are Learning
Our Swann sixth graders are learning about Ancient Rome in Social Studies and learning about soil and stewardship in Science. Students are getting ready for their environmental stewardship unit in ELA. In Math, they are practicing negative numbers and absolute value.
Our Swann seventh graders are learning about the Cold War from a global perspective in Social Studies and the human body in Science. They are continuing their mystery unit in ELA and practicing angles in Math.
Our Swann eighth graders are learning about the Cold War from the American perspective in Social Studies and molecular chemistry in Science. They are finishing their science fiction unit in ELA and exploring exponents and scientific notation in Math.
Be sure to ask your Swann Lion to tell you more about what they are doing in their classes!
