SOCIAL STUDIES:Brave New World (1 hour)
DUE DATE UPDATE -I have extended the project due date to Friday, April 3rd
Every day this week, spend 30 minutes or so making high quality, final copy paragraphs and illustrations/images/visuals. Re-read the original project description to make sure you have all the parts. It should be either typed or very neatly written. Please be sure to edit for grammar and spelling.
If you have extra time and would like to go above and beyond, consider making a commercial advertising your culture, a museum of artifacts from your culture, a fashion show with inhabitants of your culture, or any other creative ideas you can think of!
SPELLING CITY: (15 minutes) Keep working on the assignments I posted. On Friday, I will check that these have been completed and log the work in to Powerschool, along with your vocab and spelling scores.
RELIGION: (30 minutes). In your Spirit of Truth religion book, do pages 76-77. Show your answers to a parent when you have finished so they can check that your work is complete. Remember! If you don’t have your Spirit of Truth book, I put a link to an ebook in the sidebar under Class Links and Info.
