What Our Lions Are Learning
In 7th grade, our Lions are studying energy transfer in Science, proportional relationships and percentages in Math, research skills in ELA, and the Industrial Revolution in Social Studies.
In 8th grade, our Lions are studying the Dred Scott case and other Supreme Court cases in Social Studies, learning about the American Revolution with their research unit in ELA, studying the hydrosphere in Science, and working with linear relationships in Math.
See if your Lion can tell you about the activities they've done to master their standards!
