              I can’t believe we are on our final unit of the year!  Currently, we are studying the Hydrosphere. This unit is filled to the brim with fabulous H2O- water on the ground, in the earth, in the atmosphere- and let’s not forget to mention our oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams! 

    This website is designed to help you keep up with assignments, projects, science links, and everything you need to be successful, so please check back often!
