Wednesday Class

Today in science we did two things:

1. Took a quiz on Sand Dune Ecology.

2. Students had an opportunity to view published work from their peers on a Save the Beach/Sand Dune google sites page that students created in the Sand Dune Stations work. They voted for ones that they liked. The top vote "getters" will move on to a final round of voting to be done next week.

Information for this process was sent to each students email account.

Have a great thanksgiving everyone and GO LIONS! :)
