Science Test Reminder

This is a reminder that there will be a science test on Friday, February 10th.  It will account for 40% of your child’s science grade.  Can you name all of the clouds, describe them, and the weather they bring? What are the four main weather tools and what do they measure?  Can you read a weather map with warm fronts, cold fronts, high pressure systems, and low pressure systems? Don’t forget to differentiate between the 3 types of storms. Our science weather packets will be sent home as a study guide this week.
