Most of you are at the field trip today, but 1st hour has an extra period of work time--lucky you!


Gather everything you need to work on your project today, including the rubric on the supply table.

We will meet to do our mindfulness exercise and then you will have the whole class time to work. Use it well! Help your classmates be involved, too.



1. Mindfulness

2. Project Check-in: Meet as a group and decide what needs to get done today!

3. Project Work Time: Use it well!


Read for at least 20 minutes about your research topic and/or work on the parts of your project you are doing.

Look here if you need new sources to read. Use the schoology folder on your topic, too!

** Reading and Writing Points are due Friday

** Info Text Project due Friday

**After school help TODAY, 2-3pm, in my room. You need to have a way to get home, though.

Learning Goals

Students can use mindful exercises to relax and get ready to work.

Students can organize what they know about their topic and figure out where to go next in creating an interesting teaching text.

See you soon,
