8th Grade Science: Bell Ringers #21-30

A few students have asked for the Bell Ringers for this last 2 weeks. Since these are collected for a grade, I have converted them into a pdf so that any student who needs them can access them. Remember, these are supposed to be done in class and I always review the answers to the questions.

Bell Ringers 21-30 (9/3 – 9/14)

These are due tomorrow after we answer #30.
