Sorry that I have not kept up the blog this year.  I am going to try to get up to date with science news, and STAY that way.

We do have a unit test on Friday, December 14th.  The  test will cover all the activities we have studied in the Micro-Life unit.  Students have the vocabulary words in their journals, and all notes from the activities we have studied.  They will have a study guide,  and they will have reviews in class before the test day.
