I'm so proud of how hard the class worked this week on their earthquake projects.  I've learned a lot alongside them.  I can't wait to see their finished products (you'll get to see them at conferences).

The class has also worked very hard on the reading portion of the state test.  I appreciate how careful everyone is being and it's paying off.  Students who aren't done will join Mr. Morgan's class when they test on Monday and Tuesday.  There isn't a time limit so students are able to take their time and do their best.  I will share scores with you at conferences.

This week's homework is up on the blog.  Math still says due April 12 but, if you click on it, it's the correct one.  Mr. Morgan is out sick today so you'll find the storyline assignment below.
Extreme Weather and Natural Disasters Homework #11
Due Friday, April 20, 2012

For homework this week, come up with an artistic representation that demonstrates something you know about earthquakes and/or tsunamis.  This is fairly open-ended so be creative and informative as possible.  Some ideas that the class came up with:
Ø    A model of the Earth and its layers.
Ø    A model showing different ways tectonic plates can move.
Ø    A song or poem with earthquake/tsunami facts.
Ø    A focused skit/puppet show that is relevant and on topic.
Ø    A diorama.
Ø    A mobile.

Have a great weekend!
