Have a wonderful vacation.
6th Grade is reading short stories and excerpts from novels and learning tactics for answering multiple choice questions and writing short and extended responses.
7th Grade will be continuing their journey learning about Stephen Hawking and other astrophysicists. The notes, discussions, and readings will culminate in their writing a research paper on an assigned topic about the universe.
8th Grade begins Animal Farm when we return; we will preface the reading by learning about allegory, the symbolism of the characters in the book, and the political climate of the 40s and 50s.
