I'll keep this blog post short today. Yay! Free time!
We graded maps, which is why the post will be short. ...Your free time = my time entering those grades. They should be up by 4:30.
We also messed around with Google Earth today. Although we're studying ancient Egypt, and the 1860s hardly qualify as "ancient," the Suez Canal was on the map. So we looked at its purpose. Students were also having some trouble with scale, so most classes zoomed in on a baseball diamond. And we looked at how different it looked the farther away we got from it. ...How different everything looked. How small we are from outer space.
I told you I'd keep the post short, so in keeping with promises... If you read and discussed today's post with an adult, go check your current grades in all your classes. Write down your grades. If you're missing any assignments, write them down. If you're missing anything for me - get them and complete them. (Other than bellwork, of course.) Once you have the list, have the adult you read and discussed the blog with sign it. Turn it in tomorrow.
(If you're doing all your assignments, this should be really easy.)
