Biography Project

I have assigned the Bio in a Bag project before the Thanksgiving break to provide an opportunity for students to have a wider range of family members to interview. Students will present the assignment in front of the class, and the presentations are scheduled for Dec. 6 and 7. The essay part of the project is due on 12/12.

More information in resources.

Countries Compare/Contrast Project

Students will conduct research of two countries of their choice in Culturegrams (that can only be accessed in school). The project will be completed in Google Classroom in the computer lab on 12/03,12/04, and 12/06, and the project can be accessed at home if the student needs more time.
