I will check your 7-2 Review Guide

7-2 – Test Review

I will also collect all three parts of your Constitution Project.

  • This assignment will be graded as a 30 point project grade for the 1st nine weeks

    Greetings from Greenwood. I love this blog and plan to share it with some of our 7th grade SS teachers. Hope you don’t mind. I am trying to encourage more of our teachers to use more Internet tools with their classes.
