 With cold/flu and allergy season upon us,I have so appreciated all the Kleenex donations as well as the school supplies from the cards on my door at back to school night! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!  I am now good for Kleenex but am on my last container of Anti Bacterial Wipes for the students to clean their desks and counters with. I will give 3 gold cards for one container of wipes up to 2 Containers/6 Gold Cards per student. Lysol or Clorox are well known brands but the store brands are good too. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP (-: !!

7th Gr.: Rock Cycle Diagram:
Here are the colors for coding this Rock Cycle Diagram. I used thin tipped markers in blue, red, black and green and tried to box the "ACTION" words so they'd stand out and look different from the Rock Types and How Rock Changes terms (:!!
