7th Grade Walking Field Trip

Tomorrow the 8th graders will complete NECAP testing with the last two writing sections. 7th graders will be out in the community collecting data as they go on a walking field trip. Using their distance and time, students will analyze their walk, create graphs and tables that represent the data, and extend their finding to a walk that they plan for younger students. The Project will run Thursday through next Tuesday. We will be posting our work on Haiku if you would like to see what we are up to! Should be a great way to get outside and enjoy the fall leaves!
