JUSTIFIED TRUE OR FALSE STATEMENTS
Justified True or False Statements provide a set of claims or statements that are examined by you. You are meant to draw on evidence from what you have learned to analyze the validity of the statements, and then describe the reasoning used to decide whether each claim is true or false.
Explain why you think each statement is true or false. *NOTE* Please use grade appropriate spelling and grammar.
