In Ethnic Studies, students are practicing historical thinking skills by reading and analyzing primary source materials.




Physics (taught by Mr. Liu): In Physics, we are finishing up learning about Newton’s Laws of Motion.  We’ve done interesting demonstrations with Inertia and Action and Reaction.  We’re preparing to focus on our first major PBL involving car crashes, momentum, and impulse.  This leads to our major egg drop competition!
