You can also access the online CRCT practice by following the information below:
The Georgia State Department of Education has developed an online practice assessment system for the upcoming CRCT's. The system requires Internet Explorer 5.0-6.0 or Netscape 4.5-4.78 to run. The browser checker will notify you if your browser is not compatible.

The password is education. The student can choose from a variety of tests for each subject appropriate to their grade level.
The test begins when the student clicks on the Take the Test button.

The results will display; you may save or discard the results.

This week we identified and classified igneous and sedimentary rocks. We made two models of sediment layers and began an experiment to demonstrate the settling of sediment into different layers. Rocks are remarkable!

Our first unit of study covers rocks and how they are formed, the structure of the earth, the building up of the earth and the wearing down of the earth.
We began by exploring soil. What is soil? How is it formed? What is it made of? We currently have an experiment in progress to answer these questions.
This unit will cover several weeks with a variety of projects, activities, and experiments.
Welcome to the world beneath our feet!

Earth Science: Welcome to the adventure!!
Earth Science is filled with the wonder of our marvelous earth and our galaxy, a very exciting field of study. As we explore each Earth Science Unit we will increase our skills of observation, recording information, and organizing information. We will learn about what is under our feet, as well as, what is above our heads. I hope we will be surprised, inspired and appreciative of this wonderful earth.
"Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe
around him and calls the adventure Science."
