Greetings families and Aurorians!
We had a busy week.
Students worked very hard to complete their Hot Topics argument project and post on seesaw.com. Some students are still working on final details, so these will be assessed over April break. Students can make changes and upload new version onto seesaw before April 19.
Our next arguments will be over Columbus Day. Should he be celebrated as a hero? This will include an brief study of European explorers during the Age of Exploration. We will create bio cards for 9 different explorers, examine many articles about explorers and Columbus in particular.
Next week we are invited to share in an opportunity to skype with Jane Goodall. To prepare we are watching some of the documentary Jane and looking at some of the many many resources online. We will be visiting with Jane live on skype on Tuesday, April 9th at 9 am in the library with Team Epic. See the parent letter provided by the event here.
Coming up next week:
Word study due Tuesday
Bio card due Thursday
2-4-2 math packet due Friday
Have a great weekend!!
