Unit Test: Age of Exploration & Scientific Revolution


This Week: Unit Test

This week you will take a Unit Test on the Age of Discovery. The study guide can be found below. I still have a few copies in my room but I will not be printing any more copies so you must print it yourself or write it out on a separate paper when I run out. It is worth 100 points but is not required.You also have an opportunity to take an online practice test. Take it as many times as necessary. There is overlap between the practice test and the unit test.
