Pringles Challenge Day 2B

This was the final day for fourth and fifth periods to complete the Pringles Challenge. If you did not complete your project, you can come in before school on Wednesday or Thursday or complete it at home. I must have your package by Friday so I can get it in the mail.

For first and third periods, we will meet tomorrow to finalize the project. Please prepared to work.
