Exploring the Common Core State Standards
Bev will lead us through a brief overview of the Common Core state standards and some examples of how they will be used in science.
Can Balance Be Achieved? Weather or not…"
Tom George, Physical Science teacher at Pleasant Valley High School. will discuss pressure (foot activity) and how differences in air pressure create wind. He will also lead us create a model to investigate how hot and cold fronts interact. PowerPoint
