7th Grade Science

Week of March 16th

We did it!

Last week we wrapped up our simple machines stations. It was a lot of work but we made it through! Our simple machines test is on Monday and will be followed by remediation and retest on Tuesday (if needed). Students will then begin learning about energy.
