Units of Study


Throughout the school year we will study a number of different units.  Each unit follows a curriculum map created by the Holyoke Public Schools.  If you would like to read the curriculum maps, click on the website address: http://www.hps.holyoke.ma.us/curriculummap.htm.  Scroll down the list until you find Grade 7.  Each link will open a PDF outlining the unit of study.
