In science, we will be finishing up our unit on matter and its properties. We will be making solutions tomorrow and determining what is soluble in water. We will be discussing such questions as, is air a solution? Does a solution retain the mass of both of its components? How can we separate solutions? Students will have a science review to complete as homework on Tuesday and Wednesday in order to prepare for their test. This review is bright yellow. We will review on Thursday, October 15th and test on Friday, October 16th.
