This week we will wrap out our study of the Geosphere with a quiz on Friday (Sept 15) worth 23 points! Students will receive a STUDY GUIDE Monday (Tuesday) and they'll take home their science journals to help them study.
Their science journals SHOULD have all their vocabulary, focus questions, notes, and experiments we have done together in class! They can also use graded assignments that have been returned to them and Google Classroom (and this website) to access more information about the topics on the quiz.
