Students were asked to work on their foldables at home.


ES 120- We went to the library and work on a project, “Environmental Group Research”.  Students were asked to research two different environmental groups.  The class was put into five different groups, each given two topics to research.  Student had the assignment sheet and two templates sheets to fill out the information. Students were told they will be informally presenting their research to the class on Tuesday.
