We are almost at spring break but that does not mean our work stops, especially for seventh graders. This week, they are taking a Constitution practice test on Monday, review day on Tuesday and then the actual Constitution test on Wednesday. Any students who are not going to be at school for the test will have to make it up after spring break. It is important that students are reviewing each night here before the test. The best tool for that is the blue book that we have. If your child is going to take the test after break, they should definitely bring their blue book home over break to have to look at before they return.
Eighth graders are complete with the U.S. Constitution, but will be going back to the blue books after spring break to look at the Illinois Constitution. This week, 8th graders are working on a project that is combining both global studies and science. They will be researching the creation and advancements in electricity throughout the 1900s to today from a historical standpoint for global studies and a functionality and development standpoint for science.
