PSSA testing has come to a close and we have entered the last full month of school. In math we will be solving linear algebraic equations with both positive an negative values using the Hands-On Equations Learning System. In addition students will be completing choice activities involving fractions and decimals. The guidelines for this activity will be shared with the class during the week. These independent activities will be completed both in the classroom and if needed at home. There is one Math Rules sheet due for homework on Friday.
In science we are learning about the relationships between electricity and magnetism and will soon be working to create our own electromagnets.
