Posted on 04/23/2018
In ELA, students are currently in our MCAS Prep Unit. Students will be taking the ELA MCAS tests on April 26 and April 27. Students received a mandatory homework packet over April Break. The packet is due Tuesday, April 24. The packet will be worth a test grade and will be equivalent to two nights' worth of homework.

In science, students are continuing their investigations of different types of energy. Currently, they are investigating thermal energy and the relationship it has to the kinetic energy of molecules in solids, liquids, and gases. Students will apply this information to different situations in order to determine which systems have more or less thermal energy.

In social studies, students are finishing up their study of ancient India and Buddhism. Following the April break, we will explore ancient China and look at the three Chinese philosophies, we will finish with our final document based questions essay of the year: "The Great Wall of China: Did the Benefits Outweigh the Costs?."
