March 4th Homework:
In class today you were given a copy of the cultural questions that you need to complete for HW, due March 4th. Some people expressed interest in typing their answers. Having a copy of these questions that you could download & use might make the typing easier. I know the layout is not the same as the one I handed out in class, but the questions are the same.
TEAM TRIP - MARCH 5th
Our trip is scheduled for March 5th. You need to bring 2 snacks & a bagged lunch.
Give yourself a head start.
ADVANTAGE ASSIGNMENT: (NOTE: You must complete regular work in order to get credit for ADVANTAGE POINTS!)
Advantage Assignments are HW that YOU CHOOSE to do; it’s optional. If you want to do the activity on your own time, go right ahead. When you are finished turn it in to your Class Period Basket.
Credit earned for Advantage Assignments will be reflected in your end of the quarter grade as well in your ability to do well in class. This assignment is worth 15 points. Everything will be due by March 10th.
The next culture we will be learning about is Ancient India with the focus on the the Indus River Valley. If you wanted to see the region on a current day map you would be looking to locate current day Pakistan & India.
On Feb. 24, 2014, you will have an INB Check. Its worth 50 points. It will cover everything from pages 54 - 75, in other words everything we've done on Egypt.
Check & see if you are ready to turn in your best work. Is everything look like you gave it your best effort (accurate, complete, neat, BEST, ELA, colored, etc)?
REMEMBER: Anything worth doing is worth doing well.
If you are missing anything, below are links to almost everything we have done in class. There is no reason for you not to earn your full 50 points. (Even if you have been absent!)
The following should be completed:
I am a big fan of Calvin & Hobbes (by Bill Watterson), but quite often Calvin's ideas are just a little off center... like winging it! I am not a big fan of winging things that are as important as a midterm.
Attached is the copy of the midterm review that should be a big help to all of you who have never taken a midterm before.
Go through it and see where you are STRONG & where you need help. Study the areas you need help with. Come ask questions at After School Help (This week Tuesday & Wednesday, next week, Tuesday... test is Wednesday! YIKES!)
Hope you are enjoying your day off from school!
