Science News

We will continue studying electricity this week. We will wrap up the unit before break. Test date will be announced soon. (I may just test after Spring Break, as not to rush the kids... but I'll let you know!) By the end of the week, students should be able to explain and differeniate between series and parallel circuits. They should also be able to construct both independently. We will also learn about electromagnets as well!
