This week, you would have thought we were in a pre-algebra class! Kids had lots of practice solving multi-step word problems using variables to stand in for missing numbers. This unit really is a culmination of all of the foundation and skill practice we did the first semester.
This week, we will wrap up this unit with a test, likely on Wednesday or Thursday. Check agendas for updates. We will also start out personal financial literacy unit and begin work on a website program called Everfi.
In science, we explored uneven heating and its effects on weather. Students also have been using various weather tools to collect data daily out our very own Baldwin Weather Station!
This week, we will learn how to read weather maps.
