Social Studies Test/Pictograph Project
Students received study guides today for test on December 19th. Study Guide
will be posted online on Wednesday. In addition, to culminate our Native
American unit students will be completing a pictograph starting on Wednesday.
They will be completing most of the project in class over (3 hours). If
students use their time wisely, this should be just about done, if not
completely done in school. There may be, however, some final touches that
will need to be done at home. The project will be due December 19th.
Students are working on a Park Project. We spent a couple hours last Friday
working on spreadsheets to set up budgets. We will continue to work in class
on our budgets. After budgets are created, we will be using Google Sketchup
to make a 3D rendering of the park. Please feel free to load this free
program on your home computer for students to get familiar with. Here is the
website to load the program: http://google-sketchup.en.softonic.com/
There are also several Youtube sites with step by step directions on how to
use this program.
