  • 12 FEB 2019: Watch this quick review of the first semester. After the review video make a list of as many concepts as you remember leaning about this year including the 3rd quarter. For example; density, chemical bonds, temperature, and biomes. After making your list, choose any two items from your list and write a sentence that logically shows a connection between the two science concepts. For example, if I selected density and chemical boning from the list above; I could write the following sentence: As the temperature of most substances increases, the density of the substance decreases since the molecules bounce farther apart as they collide with each other.
