Week of December 5 to 9

MONDAY – Today marks the first day of the 2nd trimester. As we wrapped up the first trimester, several students were up against the wall with low project scores and no chance at all to improve the score. SO….the Columbian Exchange project will be the first grade in the second trimester, thereby giving students a chance to improve their grade if they wish.

Grid drawings – in preparation for creating a grid map this week, students applied their drawing skills to simple animations. This is a pass / no pass assignment.┬áStudents will be encouraged to keep trying until each understands the concept of drawing using a grid as a guide.

TUESDAY – Today we started our grid maps of South America. Students will have the remainder of this week to work on these maps. Please see the links below for directions and a scoring rubric.
