We will work on experiments covering the subjects of The Seasons and Earths Tilt, The Expanding Universe, and How Craters Form.
After each weekly lesson, we will continue to have a Lesson test. The students will continue to receive a study guide every Wed. to help them study for the Lesson Test on Friday. Once we have completed a chapter, we will have the Chapter test.
