July 15 Due 7/15

Create  a storyboard over the movie you watched yesterday.  Your paper should have 6 squares.  Make the first square the title square and put your name on the back.  Then, choose FIVE important events from the movie and illustrate them.  Remember, this is similar to a comic strip, so events must appear in chronological order.  They must also be in color and since none of the characters were ever floating in white space, you'll need to have a background or setting of each event.

On the back of each square you will write a  paragraph (not a caption!!) explaining each event and closing any gaps between the events.  Be thorough and detailed in your summaries to show you knowledge and understanding of the events. 

 Animal Farm - Due 7/15

You were to read chapters 6, 7, and 8 yesterday.  Create a timeline of important events.  You must have at least FIVE important events from each chapter.  As this is a timeline, the events need to appear in chronological order.  You will also need to provide a colored  illustration for each event.\

 Read Chapter 9.  Access the link below to answer the questions.  Once you have completed the questions you can either print them out and turn them in or you may email them to me.
