GROW 24 is now on the GROW link on my website.  Most of you have your atlases, my homeroom probably doesn't, so they will need to use an online atlas.  Just write your answers on a piece of paper. I will post the answers on Friday.
 
For Science we are going to try a new website.  I would love to hear how it goes.  The link is below.  
 
  
Also, don't forget to read and take you AR tests.  There is a link on the BLE homepage that allows AR tests to be taken at home.
 
*4/6 Happy Spring Vacation
 
No new assignment this week.  The weather is supposed to be nice this week, so get outside and enjoy the sunshine!  Check back next Monday. 
 
*3/30  You need to work on your Colonial America research.  I know your gathering grids are at school, but you can do your research on regular paper.
 
Gather information on the following topics during Colonial times:
 
Houses
Clothing
Jobs 
Play (what they did for fun)
Traditions and Celebrations
Food
Something that is interesting to you
 
When you finish your research you will need to create a Slide Show.  Each topic will need a slide with a title, picture, and at least 3 facts.
 
Since we are primarily working on Social Studies, Science will be Study Jams time.
