    Today in lab:

    _______________________________

    1) Work on your study guide.  Make SURE you don't lose this.  You will be allowed to use it on your final exam (as long as your behavior is good enough to earn that opportunity).  Study guide answers are available in the Notes and Files section of my website.

    _______________________________

    2) In 7th grade, students are supposed to learn a little bit about personal finance.  When you have finished the study guide, please take some time to explore the activities and games on the following websites: https://consumerjungle.org/ and http://senseanddollars.thinkport.org/games/home.html

    _______________________________

    3) With any leftover time, you can read a book, watch CNN 10, or do work for another class.
