As we enter this last grading period of the year, we have a lot of important assignments to finish up. Many of these will make up your formal work samples for a number of subjects for the year, so we’ll spend a good deal of time refining them.
Volcano Research Essays 6th & 7th grades:
Rough drafts due Monday May 13. Final drafts due Friday the 17th.
Volcano models are due Monday May 20. These will be mainly built at home and brought in on the 20th. On May 22 we’ll be exhibiting the models (and watching them erupt!) at our annual Spring BBQ.
Our speeches on these volcanoes will be given during the week of the 13th. We’ll start Monday and will finish by Friday at the latest (I don’t expect it to take that long, though).
Lord of the Flies Literary Analysis Essays
