Light Test

Today they tested their minerals with a flashlight to see whether they were opaque, translucent, or transparent.


Mrs. Glen shared how to login to our school library online so they can borrow books and read them on a Kindle, laptop, etc. A letter went home with their library number so you can access from home.
