We are currently working on clothing from the past and discussing how clothing and trends have changed. They students were all given homework last week and were to ask a parent what they wore when they were in middle school. Some did not complete this task and did not participate in the activity.
This week we also read a book En D’Autre Temps. We will be finishing up this book and beginning a research project on clothing on Friday and Monday. This will be presented to the class.
We have been discussing Extra Terrestrials and whether they are real or fake. The students have some great opinions and ideas on the subject. We are currently reading a book titled Les OVNIS and will finish this up this week. We will do a short oral exercise on what their reaction would be if they saw and Extra Terrestrial in real life. Next week we will move on to creating our own Phénomène Etrange. The students will think up their own story of legend and then do a news interview on the subject.
Students were handed back their science quiz’s both 1 and 2. They were to bring these home and have them signed by their parents. Some students have yet to return these to me. Please return all tests by tomorrow.
We are currently finishing up a project on Vertebrates and adaptations they have. Students will be given today to finish and then must compete the rest on their own time. These will be due Wednesday.
We will be moving on to Characteristics of Vertebrate and Invertebrates. We have discussed this previously but we will be going more in-depth this week and next week and will be completing a short worksheet for both. There will be a marked assignment/quiz next week on this which will require study time at home. Information about this will be posted next week.
Have a great week and weekend !
