Social Studies: Today we returned to the old Quizlet and geography games to review for tomorrow’s “midterm.”  This test will cover everything we have studied about Europe but… it won’t count unless you want to use it to replace another low grade. If you want to use it that way to potential raise your grade, you will need to review your entire notebook! Tuesday the textbook questions about the EU are also due. Some students worked more on this today rather than the review.

Science: Today was the quiz on weather and atmosphere. Students worked on their projects or on the Unequal Heating of the Earth lab that is due tomorrow.  Test is Wednesday. The answers to the study guide are listed below. Try to answer them on your own first, then make corrections and study. Socrative and Quizlet are also available for review. Project is due at the end of class on Thursday.  The room number for Socrative is 6AHUMPHREYS
